The JPFO has delivered this fairly self-evident rhetorical shiv in the ribs of the Commander in Chief. Leave aside the question of the wisdom or efficacy of our forces’ continued presence in the sandbox. It should surprise no one that wading into l’affair ZimMartin clearly served a number of interests dear to the President’s heart, not the least of which is distracting low info-Americans from bigger problems that actually affect them — things like the economy, the cost of a gallon of gas, the slow-mo ObamaCare debacle and, oh yeah, a few worsening scandals. It’s clear that continuing operations in Afghanistan no longer (did they ever?) comport with Obama’s view of the appropriate projection of American power, let alone his political interests. But it might be refreshing if the 40,000 or so troops living and working in harm’s way every day commanded half as much of his attention as one dead Florida teenager apparently has. Just sayin’.
