1. There are voices saying that Obama is constantly blaming the Bush administration. It will take decades before anyone can get us out of the mess left by that administration. It should not only be stressed that it was the fault of the Bush administration, but also it should concretely be shown what they did. The people who are guilty of this calamity should be brought to justice. If this will not happen, there will never be closure, and it will invite future people to act lawlessly. They would know that they would never be caught. In Great Britain right now there is a hearing about the reasons why that country went to war in Iraq. Here there is nothing like that.
2. Obama said we would be leaving Afghanistan soon. Everyone knows how corrupt the Afghanistan election in 2009 was and that Karzai is not there legally. First of all, since that country is under US control right now (since 2001 basically), the US was supposed to have made sure that there would be no corruption during the voting. This did not occur. And now Karzai is in office illegally. It should be beneath the dignity of the Obama administration to even speak with him, and yet he is being treated like a legitimate leader.
