House Armed Services Chair: Obama's Afghan strategy 'doesn't make a lick of sense'

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon (R-Calif.) on Tuesday said he was pleased that Obama met the military’s request to keep some forces in Afghanistan beyond 2014; however, he went on to say, “holding this mission to an arbitrary egg-timer doesn’t make a lick of sense strategically.”

McKeon also warned of similarities to what happened in Iraq.

“Does the president seek to replicate his mistakes in Iraq where he abandoned the region to chaos and failed to forge a real security partnership?” he asked.

Obama has said he will keep 9,800 soldiers in Afghanistan even after December’s end to the US combat mission there.
