Rubio: Obama ‘Emboldening the Taliban’ With Weak Foreign Policy

While appearing on Sunday’s edition of CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., accused Barack Obama of “emboldening the Taliban” by telegraphing strategy and announcing exit dates.

Rubio said he thought former Defense Secretary Robert Gates should have waited until Obama was out of office to release his scathing memoir, but he excoriated the president for his policies, which he said were driven by politics.

“You saw that reflected in the decision that (Obama) made,” Rubio told CBS. “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.”
