Pentagon Study Leaked: Afghan Army numbers inflated 40 to 50%, will not be ready to take over anytime soon; 70,000 U.S. Casualties, Enough is Enough

Rachel Maddow: New Pentagon Report Blows HUGE Hole In Obama’s Afghanistan Withdrawal Plan

The Pentagon Papers of Vietnam era, that is what the LEAK of this study is being called. It is a 25 page confidential report for a briefing for General Petraeus and for General McCrystal and was leaked to Richard Engel, NBC’s Chief Foreign Correspondent. Engel reports that the “Number One Priority in Afghanistan is to train Afghan Security Forces to they can take over and the U.S. can get out”. This goal is very far away from being achieved. Engel reports that the number of Afghan soldiers and police are over estimated by 40 to 50%, they are not there, the numbers are highly exaggerated. Here’ Rachel Maddow’s interview and Richard Engel. [Ed. Note: Rachel says that this will be all over the news in the morning (NOW), and the story does not appear in any of the U.S. establishment print media. When will it come out? It appears on some Blog sites. Pass it along.]

    Did Engel and Maddow not pay attention? Again, they seem to listen only to Obama’s empty words. Did they not bother to read McChrystal’s report and what he specifically said, instead of Obama’s attacks on his own General and his hollow claims that didn’t match what he asked his General to do?
