A Republican presidential candidate has slammed President Barack Obama’s recent decision to keep troops in Afghanistan.
In a speech Thursday, Obama announced U.S. forces would remain in Afghanistan at least through the rest of 2016. In yet another delay, this is now America’s longest war.
Former Arkansas Governor and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee says the president’s policies have been a secession of failures.

“This is a president who is going to reset the relationship with Russia – we see how that went,” said Huckabee. “He picked the wrong side in Egypt, he misjudged how things were standing in Yemen, totally missed what was happening in Libya and put a red line in Syria and didn’t hold anyone accountable.”
Huckabee tells USA News he believes that many find the president is incapable of making a solid foreign policy decision – including Afghanistan.
