Obama to Reject All Afghanistan War Options

The big problem with rejecting all the options is the fact that we are already at war. We have people fighting and dieing in Afghanistan. You can not simply chose to do nothing. Doing nothing at best is a waist of blood and treasure. Decide on a mission, give the generals what they need to accomplish the task, or bring the troops home.

I guess this means knowing the outcome of the Afghanistan presidential election did not help him meet the presumed time frame. Wonder if this latest case of dithering is going to reinforce Karzai's concerns.

"President Barack Obama does not plan to accept any of the Afghanistan war options presented by his national security team, pushing instead for revisions to clarify how and when U.S. troops would turn over responsibility to the Afghan government, a senior administration official said Wednesday."
