For the latter reason, you can't really do that. You also need to show why several weeks of study is abnormal and psychotic amount of time for a president to dedicate to war related matters. You can't do that either.

    So what do you really think of the emporer's new clothes?



    Doesn't really matter. The troops are only one aspect of the nation. Obama can take as much time as he wants to address the others. Several weeks consisting primarily of Afghanistan strategy study is pretty generous.

    ok so the americans who have to sit around and be shot and killed "don't really matter" while Obama fiddles while Afghanistan burns.... Gotcha.

    It doesn't take weeks to figure out that he needs to either give them the combat power they need, or bring them home. But, it's not as if we have some sorta genius in the White House right now.

    The blood of the 8 American soldiers that died this past weekend is on the hands of the anointed one and that my friends will NEVER wash off!

    ... as is every soldier that has died or been hurt since he read the report (I don't care when he received it, he's had it for over a month now!). His incompetence is screaming!

    Really? And what could Obama have done to prevent it? And what is the right doing about it, other than using that blood to score cheap political points?

    Are you suggesting that if Obama had ordered more troops last week to be deployed in December or January (or announced an eventual withdrawal), that these soldiers would not have been killed?
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.
