WASHINGTON In an unannounced move, President Barack Obama is dispatching an additional 13,000 US troops to Afghanistan beyond the 21,000 he announced publicly in March, The Washington Post reported.

The war in Afghanistan is at best a stand off and our troops are getting killed at a higher rate because of Obama's new Rules of Engagement, (ROE). So instead of changing the ROE to favor our troops or sending more combat personnel in, Obama has decided to send in more support troops. How about that?
snip
"Obama authorized the whole thing. The only thing you saw announced in a press release was the 21,000," a defense official familiar with the troop-approval process told the daily.

But the newspaper noted that the maximum number of US service members expected in Afghanistan by year's end -- 68,000 -- would remain the same.

He should either do it right and send what the Generals want or he should get the hell out.
This half assed way of doing things is what got us a big 'loss' on Vietnam.
