WH Chief of Staff Criticized Steele on Afghanistan

Thursday, 08 July 2010 09:00 PM EDT

White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel says it was "horrible" and "wrong" of GOP Chairman Michael Steele to describe the conflict in Afghanistan as a mistaken war of President Barack Obama's choosing.

Emanuel says all of America ends up at war when a president decides to send troops into combat.

In remarks last week, Steele criticized Obama's handling of the war and suggested that it can't be won. Former President George W. Bush sent U.S. troops into Afghanistan in 2001 after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Some Republicans also criticized Steele and others called for him to resign.

Emanuel said Steele's view of the war is a "horrible way and a wrong way to look at it." Emanuel was interviewed Thursday on PBS' "NewsHour."
