White House Orders Thousands Of U.S. Troops Withdrawn from Afghanistan and Iraq

Don't forget letting Osama disappear and then years later trying to hand-wave it off, saying bullshit like "Oh...how do we even know he's still alive???".

And even worse, when Osama was finally found and killed, shameless sour grapes attitudes 24 hours after the fact because "their guy" wasn't the one to make it happen. So not only did they probably cause our failures in Afghanistan by taking attention and resources away, they also failed to apprehend the most important person who was the entire reasoning for the occupation in the first place.

But you know, according to modern narrative Bush is a cool guy because he gave Michelle Obama some candy and was nice to Barack when he won election.
