Krauthammer: Obama’s Afghan Withdrawal Announcement ‘Personal Narcissism’ (Free Beacon)
Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer had harsh words for President Obama over his decision to publicly announce the United States’s troop withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“I think it’s worse than a political act to announce the leaving – it’s kind of an act of personal narcissism,” Krauthammer told the panel on Fox News’s Special Report Tuesday evening.
He said President Obama’s decision to publicly announce the troop withdrawal is indicative of an administration that is politicizing foreign policy in an unprecedented fashion. “I mean, is that how we’re now setting the strategy of the United States of America – a war zone where so many have died and so much treasure and blood has been spent so a president can leave office looking good?” he asked.
