Ayers Criticizes Obama Surge
Posted By Bethany Stotts On December 4, 2009 @ 11:57 am In Faculty Lounge | No Comments
Radical UIC  professor Bill Ayers  took to the streets of Chicago protesting President Obama’s recently-announced surge in Afghanistan. Obama said  that he will be sending an additional 30,000 troops with an 18-month withdrawal deadline on Tuesday.
In the video Ayers calls “the idea that there are benchmarks for getting out” of Afghanistan a “myth and a lie.”
“This is an absolute tragedy for the people of the Middle East, for Afghanistan, for us and I think everybody has to take a moment right now and stand up…and bring the troops home now,” he says.
WaPo’s Dana Milbank reported  on Dec. 3 that the “the pullout plans are vague and tentative” and classified the President’s statements as “a gesture to assuage the antiwar left.” Professor, you called it.
