Obama to take weeks to study Afghanistan strategy 30 Sep 2009 23:57:07 GMT
WASHINGTON, Sept 30 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will take several weeks to review U.S. strategy on Afghanistan and Pakistan, the White House said on Wednesday after a meeting between top U.S. officials about the region.
"When it comes to decisions as important as keeping this country safe and putting our troops into harm's way, the president has made it clear that he will rigorously assess our progress," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said in a statement.
"That is why he held this meeting today and will take the next several weeks to review our strategy."
Weeks? really? how long has he been in office? it hasn't taken him weeks to go on leno, it hasn't taken him "weeks" to go to the olympic committee... why is it taking him "weeks" to decide what our troops should do?
you all realize while he "thinks" about it, our troops are being shot at.
