.Clint Eastwood’s Surprise Speech Stirs Twitter Frenzy By Mike Dorning - Aug 30, 2012 8:43 PM PT .Facebook Share LinkedIn Google +1 3 Comments Clint raised a subject that is tough. Why not get out immediately from Afghanistan. When Bush went in with some allies [local and international] we formed a government and surrounded bin Laden in two directions. We made deals with the Government that was formed. The President of the USA had that power and it did not need to be ratified by the Senate. If I were Obama I would had weaseled out of there even before bin Laden when down. That would have been dangerous. But, Obama is not a weasel like me and Clint Eastwood. What do you think?
