Obama's Rules of Engagement

In Afghanistan:

...David Sedney, who served as deputy assistant secretary of defense for Afghanistan, Pakistan and Central Asia between 2009 and 2013, said the rules in Afghanistan were worrisome because they limited how U.S. forces can support their Afghan allies. “The rules of engagement appear to be confused, contradictory and contrary to our national interest,” he told me. “Our inability to use air power to directly to support Afghan forces is leading to a deterioration of the security situation that is dangerous to the future of Afghanistan and dangerous to our national security.”...

See, if you're a US soldier, Obama's ROE is simple:  "Hands Up!!  Don't Shoot!!"
