They voted based on the fictional intelligence they were given. We now know that the "source" for the CIA about all the WMD intel was completely full of s**t. The Bush people wanted this war so bad, they refused to be open to anything contrary to that view. Personally, I agree that we should cut and run from Afghan, but politically I understand why Obama didnt. I went to the Arghandhab as part of the Afghan surge, those boys would have been in serious trouble if they hadnt had those extra troops to back them up, so he made the right call. No way would the GOP let him get away with just withdrawing and letting the chips fall where they may, so he couldnt have done it even if he wanted to.
