Obama's Afghanistan Decision Tonight?

Obama called for another of his national security meetings tonight, it will the 9th on Afghanistan and McChrystal's troop request.

Now comes word this might be the night.

President Obama may make up his mind about sending more troops to Afghanistan as early as tonight, press secretary Robert Gibbs said today.

Obama will meet with his foreign policy advisers tonight for a Afghanistan strategy meeting. When a reporter asked if Obama might "lock down" his decision tonight, Gibbs said it was possible.

"I don't know the answer to that. It may be tonight; it may be over the course of the next several days," he responded.

He may have already made up his mind and is meeting with the group to announce it to them.

If so, it would fit with what Lex is hearing about Marines getting the word deployments are being moved up and enlarged.

I can't wait to see what type of plan this reincarnation of King Solomon and George Patton comes up with.

A more cynical person than I (if such a person exists) might say that this is awfully interesting after the Senate vote on health care and even more importantly the unanimously negative reaction to his trip to Asia and his 'leadership' style.
