Obama's Afghanistan –
Losing His Cred
And his war

Looks like Nostrobama's
    prematurely lost his cred,
He promised to withdraw our troops.
    That's what we all thought he said.

But now his minions seek to blur
    the message that he sent.
Makes you wonder what it was
    he might have thought he meant.

Five days of four-star lobbying
    after three months on the fence –
Was he waterboarded until
    more stars made more sense?

But will more stars and shorter tours
    provide his four-star brass
With Wall Street size incentives
    and improve their social class?

Or will longer tours give Karzai
    time to cut them in
So no one needs to worry
    about which side gets the win?
