Barack Obama met Monday evening with his national security team to finalize a plan to dispatch some 34,000 additional U.S. troops over the next year to what he's called "a war of necessity" in Afghanistan, U.S. officials told McClatchy. Obama is expected to announce his long-awaited decision on Dec. 1st. Why December 1st, when he has already made up his mind? Don't ask me, I'm only a taxpaying republican.
Lets give BO some credit here. It may have taken him 3 months, but at least he made a decision about the troops. Meanwhile he is doing what all good Community Organizers do: He's sampling the wind. This ''trial balloon'' will help him do that. The request was for, at the very least, 40,000 troops immediately - that was months ago; now we have 34,000 over the next year - does that mean 1,000 here, 1,000 there? This is just more dithering.
The resident of our White House and his criminal administration need to be removed for crimes against our nation and that would include Biden, Pelosi and company.
Nine months to make this decision while more soldiers die. But the stimulus' had to be passed in a heartbeat lest we all face disaster. Priorities?
