Mattis Tells Americans: Obama Lied To You, I’m Going To Tell You The Truth
Barack Obama spent the bulk of his eight years in office trying to build up this false narrative that he wanted to tell the world to try and push his nonsense agenda. He did this at the risk of thousands of American lives.
For eight years, the Obama Administration whittled away at things that the average person in the country took for granted as having always been there. Look at Obamacare for example.
There was a case of a woman who after having signed up for Obamacare was stricken with a terminal illness. Obamacare was such an anchor on the finances of her and her husband that they were actually compelled by her health needs to file for divorce so she could get the care that she needed.
She passed away earlier this week, having remarried her husband just a day or two before her passing.
The middle class has been destroyed by Obama’s actions, and we aren’t taking it laying down. At least now we have a President in office who is truly set on helping the people of America. The problems that Obama left for President Trump are so immense that it’s hard to imagine one man being able to reverse all the damage, but if anyone can, it’s Donald Trump.
Lately, it seems like we don’t go a single week without realizing more and more about the hidden policies that Obama put into place before dumping the burden on Trump.
It became a trend for Obama to take credit for things that he had virtually nothing to do with, while placing blame on others for things that he had done and didn’t want negative attention for.
Perhaps the most egregious of these things was the troop drawdown from Iraq and Afghanistan. This drawdown was already planned under former President George Bush, but Obama took full advantage of the plan.
The most sickening thing was watching Obama take credit for “bringing the troops home.”
Unfortunately, he brought these soldiers home only to send them back to the Middle East a few years later. We all know that Barack Obama was never the kind of guy who would allow himself to be scrutinized for anything, so he did everything he could to stave off the negative inflow of comments.
Now that President Trump has decided to push the US war in Afghanistan, it has been made known that the amount of troops in the region has been severely under-reported.
The Daily Caller reported that on Wednesday the Pentagon (under the direction of Secretary of Defense James Mattis) revealed that there are around 11,000 United States service members currently in Afghanistan.
RedWhiteandRight.com reported: Prior to this announcement, the Pentagon would only ever admit to there being 8,400 troops there under force management based on orders from the Obama administration.
Pentagon Chief Spokesperson Dana W. White and Joint Staff Director Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. emphasized the Obama-era policy affected combat readiness in Afghanistan and did not tell the whole truth as to the number of US forces in Afghanistan to the American people.
There’s no doubt that we won’t see CNN criticizing former President Barack Obama for lying about the numbers.
“This way of doing business is over,” White stated indefinitely, continuing on, “We owe the American people as much transparency as possible.”
The truth of the matter is that the Obama administration came to the 8,400 number in order to not disclose troops that were deployed on “temporary status,” even though they were there to support both the United States and NATO missions. Because of Obama’s cover-up, units were deployed without being completed just to keep numbers under the 8,400 mark. Now that honest accounting will take place, this won’t be happening anymore.
