Marco Rubio Hammers Obama For ‘Emboldening the Taliban’

Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) appeared on CBS’ Face The Nation Sunday and accused the Obama administration of ‘emboldening the Taliban’ in Afghanistan, seizing on comments in Duty, a new book by former Defense Secretary Robert Gates to make the case that the administration has mismanaged the war. “I don’t think we can ignore what’s in that book, and I think, for many of us, it confirms our worst fears,” Rubio said. “You saw that reflected in the decision that [Obama] made. At the same time that he announced the surge, he also announced an exit date and strategy, thereby emboldening the Taliban to believe they could wait us out.”
