Afghanistan Decision Slipping Again

Posted by madjillmom on November 10, 2009

For more than 6 to 8 weeks, we have been told that a decision on more troops for Afghanistan is just a few weeks away.  So many things for Pres. Obama to do, so little time.   The President will now be presented with 5, not 4 different plans and it will not be announced until after his trip to Asia starting on Nov. 12.  I just went to the briefing on the White House website, trying to figure out why the decision has to wait until after this trip.  I am clueless.  I don’t believe that anyone he is meeting with on this trip has anything to do with our military strategy on Afghanistan.  He is meeting leaders in Japan, Singapore, Indonesia, China, and Russia.  Why does this important decision have to wait for those photo ops with foreign leaders?  This slipping decision time continues to make our Commander-in-Chief look weak and in over his head.
