Obama's U-turn on troop levels in Afghanistan is a final nail in the coffin of American 'strategy' in regard to foreign policy. Putin pulled the rug from under what was left of it in both Ukraine and Syria. Now, after 14 years of abject failure, Obama has had to abandon one of his flagship platforms - winding up the Afghan debacle, 'endless wars' as he termed the routine in his last election campaign. Whatever Obama's legacy turns out to be, his foreign policy will be remembered as a disaster. He and his apologists will try to hide behind the killing of Bin Laden.
