Tuesday on CNN’s “Crossfire,” Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol slammed President Barack Obama’s announcement on troop withdrawals in Afghanistan calling it “sickening” and “unbelievably irresponsible” to give the dates of troop reductions. Kristol became agitated when Peter Beinart, a contributing editor for Atlantic Media, argued that the troops need to come back because “we don’t have enough money in this country” and “when we what is happening to the troops when they come back.”

Kristol did not let Beinart finish his thought and said, “That’s pathetic. You’re talking about the veterans as victims. That’s what you said, ‘we see these troop when is they come back. my God,’ Most of those troops are proud of having served there. The President of the United States sent them there and now he is running a huge risk of undercutting all they achieved.”
