"But Steele was not so off-base. The war in Afghanistan is President Obama's war and partly of the president's choosing. Sure, Obama
inherited the conflict. Bush initiated the military action in Afghanistan after 9/11 -- and then veered into Iraq before the war in
Afghanistan was resolved. Yet Obama, after much deliberation, decided to change the nature of the Afghanistan war. In December,
following many weeks of review, he announced he would send 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan, and he embraced the counterinsurgency
plan proposed by Gen. Stanley McChrystal, who was then commanding U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan."
