Michael Steele causes uproar with Afghan remarks

... "This was a war of Obama's choosing," said [Michael] Steele, chairman of the Republican National Committee. "This is not something the United States had actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in."

On the bright side:
... The comments sparked a wave of criticism from Democrats and calls for Steele's resignation, led by prominent Republican conservative columnist Bill Kristol.

"Needless to say, the war in Afghanistan was not 'a war of Obama's choosing,'" Kristol said in a blog on the Weekly Standard magazine site. "It has been prosecuted by the United States under Presidents Bush and Obama. Republicans have consistently supported the effort."

[emphasis added]
This may be the first time Kristol has been right about anything!
