“Obama wants it both ways in Afghanistan”

With public support for the campaign for a massive troop surge in Afghanistan at an all-time low, President Obama hopes to find a compromise between the Democrats and Republicans, says political editor Chris Stirewalt.

“The President’s going to try to maintain the same number of troops – currently 68,000 American troops and 105,000 coalition troops,” said Stirewalt, who believes Obama wants “to centralize American forces in sort of a green zone and then focus on counter-terrorist activities.”
