Obama's bet

AFP: Commanders say Obama overruled them on Afghanistan

He wins if the popularity but from initiating the withdrawal outlasts the likely decline in popularity from the chaos caused by the power vacuum created by the lack of US presence.

I hope that I'm wrong but think that the withdrawal will be interpreted as near victory by our opponents. Obama might win the battle (election) by I'm afraid we'll lose the war and the last 10 years will be for naught.
