Former CENTCOM Commander Anthony Zinni said the Obama administration was dangerously close to dithering on Gen. McChrystals troop request ,saying Weve had a strategy since March
I dont understand why were questioning his judgment at this point, and I just hope this doesnt go on for much longer.

Gen. Zinni, is being restrained in saying Obama is "close to dithering". Obama refuses to take the advice of his trained commanders in favor of listening to likes of Biden, Emmanuel and Biden's former Senate aide Antony Blinken, none of whom have ever spent a moment in uniform or studying war tactics or strategies. By failing to act, Obama has shown which camp he sides with.
They are delaying because they haven’t yet figured out a way to spin the “cut and run” strategy. The minute they can find a way to credibly blame that on Bush, they’ll make a decision.

It is worse than that. Someone is a Muslim who works for the Saudis and others. This is all about humiliating the U.S. military and making Muslims look superior. They want this.
The White Hut is filled with Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood moles. My guess is intel is being back channeled to Al Qeada and the Taliban. Hussein's rules of engagement are American troops pretty much cannot fire back.
Are you listening Joint Chiefs and Judge Carter?

Isn’t Zinni a Democrat? I suppose even HE now realizes the difference between bitching and leading.
Zero cant afford to piss off the leftwing and the leftwing media. He has
to cut and run. ..This was all a campaign head fake to begin with ..
Like he relly cares about Afghanistan ! LOL!

I agree. But I don't think they need moles. The rodents are in charge.

( Don't tread on me.)
Is it really such a mystery? Obama told us during the campaign that he would change the Rules of Engagement so we wouldn't be "just airraiding villages and killing civilians".And of course, in Audacity of Hope, he said "if the politics turn ugly, I will stand with the (Muslims)".
I understand many folks thought they were "making history" or assuaging their white guilt by voting for Obama. And they were fooled by supporterslike Jim Jones that Obama would somehow be a warrior despite his horrific anti-American rhetoric.
NO ONE can claim they still don't know what we are dealing with: our worst nightmare.

Ah, yes. That's where he prays.
But to God, or Allah?
With his hands together pointing to heaven, or his butt?
Like I heard on Fox News this morning it is not a hard decision to make. My take, unless you are playing politics.
MSNBC removed it from their front page.
