Palin Applauds Obama's Afghan Surge

Tuesday, 01 Dec 2009 04:06 PM

NEW YORK -- Sarah Palin says she supports President Barack Obama's decision to boost the U.S. military presence in Afghanistan.

But she warns that his plan to send 30,000 additional troops may not be enough to achieve victory, and that talk of an exit date might encourage enemies to "wait us out" in the region.

Palin made the comments on her Facebook page hours after Obama delivered a speech Tuesday night on his new Afghanistan war plan.

The former GOP vice-presidential nominee noted she had urged Obama to increase U.S. forces there three months ago. She said she was glad he had "mostly heeded" the advice.

Palin said she especially welcomed Obama's decision since he had opposed President George W. Bush's troop surge in Iraq in 2007.
