SNL: Obama's Done Nothing | Main | Sunday Night Football...No Cowboys!

Great. Obama's National Security Advisor Publicly Undercuts The General Obama Selected for Afghanistan

A sadly familiar refrain.

President Obama's National Security Adviser James L. Jones suggested Sunday that the public campaign being conducted by the U.S. commander in Afghanistan on behalf of his war strategy is complicating the internal White House review now underway, saying that "it is better for military advice to come up through the chain of command."

Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, who commands the 100,000 U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan, warned bluntly last week in a London speech that a strategy for defeating the Taliban narrower than the one he is advocating would be ineffective and "short-sighted." The comments effectively rejected a policy option that senior White House officials, including Vice President Biden, are seriously considering nearly eight years after the U.S. invasion.

What exactly, is the policy option Joe Biden is considering? McChrystal is appealing for the kind of counter stroke that actually works, when the populace is in survival mode, you make your force present and the best choice.

Biden, God love 'im, imagines that Predator strikes will thwart the ground force push from the Taliban.

This is damned disgusting. I've seen it too many times in my lifetime, and it always turns out the same.
