Obama has a unique problem, which you just highlighted:

Obama makes radical shift in policy and really does remove US military presence. Months later, AQ regroups and plots a new attack which they pull off with any degree of success in the US or on it's interests.

He's crucified as a weakling on defense and "he emboldened" the terrorists. It' would play perfectly well on a populace of dolts. So instead the administration stands pat and hold the line, avoiding a big hole that any 2012 opponent could exploit.

So what BRC proposes isn't going to happen.
