Obama Administration Blames Bush for Underresourcing Afghan War for Years ... 
I would point out, though, that Obama elected to keep the same Secretary of Defense. He also sacked the guy he says was underfunded and neglected.

"This was underresourced, underfunded, undermanned and ignored for years," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said.

"The president is focused on ensuring that we meet measurable benchmarks. ... It's going to take some doing."

I'd hate to be the President that has to clean up after this crew in power now.

But if I were, I sure wouldn't be passing the buck backwards nine months into my term.

Splash, out

Never mind that the last commander there asked for more troops than he got in the Afghanistan 'surge', or that they have already sent strong signals they'll deny additional troops to McChrystal. It's all George Bush's fault.

Oh, did Gibbs forget to mention the benchmarks are congressionally mandated?

They did the same for Iraq years ago. As a result, we're still wasting effort measuring, reporting, compiling, formatting, interpreting, and publishing statistics that have since become meaningless.

Trying to civilize A'stan is a 'Fool's Errand', luckily thats just what we have in the WH.
