Read some strange comments online about Obama's failures in leading the "good war" in Afghanistan he escalated along with the drone attacks that have killed many civilians despite him winning a nobel peace prize and having attacked US military/President Bush for "just air raiding villages and killing civilians" during his election campaign. Far more civilians have been killed under Obama's command since he took power.
Option is based on others comments I read, B is what I'm leaning rowards so far:
A- Obama is being sabotaged by some forces in US military who may want his incompetent Afghan war escalation to come to end soon or have some other purpose. There has been a stunning sequence of events in recent months that have all but ensured that Obama's Afghan war strategy timed for 2012 election would be a failure. Leak of photos of some soldiers killing Afghan civilians for sport, leak of video of some marines urinating on dead Afghan bodies, news of some soldiers burning their holy books using Afgahn laborers, report today of a soldier going into three homes in the middle of night and killing at least 16 children, women, civilians.
B- Obama is the most incompetent and war criminal friendly President in recent history and soldiers know that they can't get harsh punishments while he is in charge. There may be some basis for that, Obama has been light on prosecutions of war related crimes from the day he took office starting with dropping espionage case President Bush had started against Israeli lobby agents of AIPAC. More recent cases that collapsed under his watch are:
