Here is video of Obama's National Security Adviser Gen. James Jones avoiding every way possible saying that Gen. Stanley McChrystal will get the reinforcements he needs to do the job in Afghanistan.

Jones repeatedly avoided questions by Bob Schieffer on Face the Nation yesterday, about whether McChrystal's request will be granted. Jones' attitude would seem to reveal that the White House is not inclined to listen to McChrystal, and Jones said the President will not just be presented with McChrystal's request, but with a "range of options." Jones seemed to downplay McChrystal's request as being just his view, rather than seeing it as a definitive request from a commander on the ground who has made the assessment and is requesting reinforcements. . . .

Gen. Jones FOOL. O's said in campaign he will hunt Osama and get him. (Campaign promises, nothing more) Gen Jones says they have a strategy and have been working on this since March and yada yada yada, smoke, smoke smoke, means WE HAVE NO STRATEDGY, nada.

I am beginning to think O' is using extortion in holding back needed troops to GET the health care package HE WANTS.

Dear Lord, please interveen on our behalf to destroy this presidency ASAP.
