Pentagon worried about Obama's commitment to Afghanistan

• McClatchy News
The prospect that U.S. Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal may ask for as many as 45,000 additional American troops in Afghanistan is fueling growing tension within President Barack Obama's administration over the U.S. commitment to the war there.

On Monday, McChrystal sent his assessment of the situation in Afghanistan to the Pentagon, the U.S. Central Command, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and NATO. Although the assessment didn't include any request for more troops, senior military officials said they expect McChrystal later in September to seek between 21,000 and 45,000 more troops. There currently are 62,000 American troops in Afghanistan.

I've said it many times that this Idipot that people have confused with African American. He is Not American and is trying to get as many Troops as he can Out of OUR Country so that He and his New Jhad National Police Force can Overwhelm OUR Country. ITWILLK BE AFTER THE DUST SETTLES TO SEE THAT OUR FLAG WAS STILL THERE. GOD BLESS AMERICA, BRING OUR TROOPS HOME, NOW
