Last year, our president campaigned on a promise of a strategy for Afghanistan, but did not reveal the strategy.

Now, nearly 11 months after taking office, it is obvious he lied.In the meantime, the death rate for Americans in Afghanistan rises every month. President Barack Obama can make the decision to cut bankers pay overnight, but as promised at nearly every press conference for the last six months, the Afghanistan strategy will be revealed in "the coming weeks."

This president is, simply put, an incompetent liar.
