France Surrenders in Afghanistan After Osama Bin Laden Threat

One day after Osama Bin Laden threaten to attack french citizens, France announces they are withdrawing from Afghanistan. Undoubtedly, Osama and Jihadists worldwide are encouraged.

CS Monitor reported:
France is leaving Afghanistan. Though President Obama has committed to reducing America’s footprint in Afghanistan beginning July 2011, the withdrawal of another ally is likely to add an additional layer of challenge to maneuver that reduction. And the timing of the announcement has put France’s decision under some scrutiny.

France’s announcement came a day after the release of a tape with a message believed to be from Osama Bin Laden, who threatened to attack French citizens because of their presence in Afghanistan and treatment of Muslims. French officials were quick to insist that there is “absolutely no link” between the threat and their decision to begin withdrawing troops in 2011.
