Obama merely carried it out.
Bush cut a deal and left it to Obama to negotiate the armed forced agreement which he didn't ever try to do. Its like how Obama raises tax by not renewing a tax cut. Then he can say i didn't raise taxes. The tax cut just expired.
Biden tried to make an agreement and he failed. That my fellow omaners is a political loss or it was the plan all along. Either way a foreign policy disaster for Obama.
