McChrystal gave a the number of troops he needs to combat the Taliban. Does he still need that same number if he is no longer combating the Taliban? Should Obama oblige McChrystal's current mission based request if Obama is going to change McChrystal's mission?
Personally I think Obama is fool. Take out the Taliban and you start choking off AL-Q supplies and safety and thus make them that easier to defeat. Of course fighting the Taliban puts us into the same situation we are in in Iraq, nation building.
Yeah, he's trying to decide if he's going to change the mission to a surrender mission.
