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.

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.
We are in dangerous times.
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.
Like he relly cares about Afghanistan ! LOL!
I agree. But I don't think they need moles. The rodents are in charge.
get in or get out obama but quit killing our troops
More like DERELICTION !
lol they got their hands tied so maybe we should get out
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.
Who knows what’s going on with this general- given his past thinking- but this is interesting as well:
Among the zingers that Zinni offered were his suggestion that the Obama administration do what it is actually legally required to do under the Goldwater-Nichols Act and issue a “national security strategy.” Zinni noted that administrations are required to release such a report within 150 days of their administration, and the Obama administration has not done this.
Sounds like McC is hoping for some change. How's 0 hopenchange working out for ya?
How about some real hopenchange for that ROE?
Some hopenchange flavored ice cream?
Wonder if Obama is off for another golf game today?
Gotta keep the priorities straight you know.
It’s Sunday - has 0 found a church to attend yet?
It’s somewhere between the 9th and 10th holes.
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.
