Can I vote present?
Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
"True law is right reason in agreement with nature . . . Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature [and] will suffer the worst penalties . . ." - Cicero
Could this be Obama's way of pulling out without losing face or, like, blatantly reneging on his campaign promises?
edit:http://www.voanews.com/english/2009-11-12-voa3.cfmMeanwhile, two major U.S. newspapers reported the U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, Karl Eikenberry, expressed his reservations about deploying additional troops to the country.
The Washington Post and The New York Times quote senior U.S. officials as saying Ambassador Eikenberry sent two classified cables to Washington last week, in which he expressed his opposition to the plan.
His position puts him in stark opposition to General Stanley McChrystal, the commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, who has requested 40,000 more troops.
Eikenberry served as the commander of U.S. troops in Afghanistan in 2006 and 2007 and retired from the military earlier this year. He was appointed ambassador to Afghanistan by Mr. Obama.
Beautiful ass-covering if I've ever seen it.

People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Rachel Maddow interviews the AP reporter who broke the story:

**** or get off the pot time, and Obama asked for more TP.

My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
There are so many ways you could take this.
I'll settle on this one: Robert Barack Hussein Obama-McNamara.
He is initiating the Flexible Retreat Strategy (F****RS) aka cut-and-run.
F****RS.Although he was a prime architect of the Vietnam War and repeatedly overruled the JCS on strategic matters, McNamara gradually became skeptical about whether the war could be won by deploying more troops to South Vietnam and intensifying the bombing of North Vietnam, a claim he would publish in a book years later.
In the same interview he states, "Kennedy hadn't said before he died whether, faced with the loss of Vietnam, he would [completely] withdraw; but I believe today that had he faced that choice, he would have withdrawn."
In early November 1967, McNamara's recommendation to freeze troop levels, stop bombing North Vietnam and for the US to hand over ground fighting to South Vietnam...
Obama, the King of Bait-and-Switch.
