(Newser) – Lindsey Graham is not a fan of President Obama's plan to withdraw 30,000 troops from Afghanistan, telling a Chris Wallace-less Fox News Sunday that "He may have undercut the momentum we achieved in the last year. Things were moving in the right direction." Graham fretted that the president's plan didn't fall within the range of recommendations from military advisers, reports Politico, calling it "the Obama-Biden strategy."
