commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Some more info on the warning about more troops from The US Ambassador to Kabul ……..

Seems everyone over at the White House and the Pentagon got their noses out of joint when they read  Ambassador Karl Eikenberry’s warning to President Obama about not sending troops in the Washington Post…..it appears that Eikenberry (a retired Lt.General who commanded troops in the country) told the NSC that there should be exit strategy with any additional troops….and the Commander-in Chief has asked that the military to include one in its final recommendation to the President….all of this seems to point to a State Department counter to the influence of General McChrystal in the campaign..something unheard of in the Bush administration…Who said Hillary doesn’t have pull here?

Update: The author of the post linked has retracted the sequence of certain events in the post..he stands by the basic that Obama asked for a exit startegy..but in no way will the CIC ask for timetables….

This is the link for the Washington Post story…….
