    Obama to take weeks to study Afghanistan strategy

    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.

    You'd rather he make a rash decision without collecting evidence and consulting all of the relevant people? Once upon a time we had a president who tried that strategy. Our troops ended up in Iraq.

    I can't. This is important.

    And again, Leno and the Olympics have nothing to do with this.

    So you think that the president should only be allowed 20 days to decide on a major strategic shift in a war? That seems pretty important to me.

    How many threads are you going to start on the same topic?

    It'll end up the same as well, epic fail.

    That is exactactly right. Bush / Cheney prematurely ejaculated a "decision" on Afghanistan and that went off to attack Iraq and that is why Obama is dealing with Afghanistan today.
    I do not recall the Viet Cong asking me if I was a natural born or Naturalized American before they shot at me, they just shot at all of us f107HyperSabr

    How many times are you going to ignore how your God King is putting leno above the troops?

    How many threads of mine are you going to troll?


    I find it amazing, any thread started on the God King, and out come the posters who have no intellectual value, and are simple obama apparachiks blindly defending said god king at all costs.
