An Oregon political analyst is reacting to President Obama's announcement to bring troops home from Afghanistan. Obama announced that all 33,000 U.S. "surge" forces will be fully withdrawn from Afghanistan by September 2012. Political Analyst Jim Moore in Portland says the speech was what he expected: "The President is clearly trying to walk a tightrope. Osama Bin Laden, public opinion and lots of Congress members are asking why are we still there with Bin Laden killed? Kind of like Richard Nixon and Vietnam; some happy, some not.   A slow process. We're coming up on the 10th anniversary of 911 and a lot of people are "war weary. " Moore says this is one of the longest wars the country has been involved in.
