Fox News: Uncertainty about US future in Afghanistan forces Pentagon to explore Pakistan drone options Unintended consequences? I doubt it. The Great Pretender was well aware of the impact of withdrawing from Afghanistan on the interdiction of terrorist leadership hiding in Pakistan when he announced the withdrawal three years ago. He likely knew that Afghani President Hamid Karzai would be opposed to extending the drawdown beyond the end of this year. Why? Who knows? I gave up trying to track the rabbit trails in this traitor's agenda a long time ago. But then again, Marxists rarely think logically in terms of the scheme of world security anyway.
