“Afghan issue publicity creates problems for Obama”

Considering and reconsidering strategies is not unusual for presidents, but this being done in public is creating command problems for Barack Obama, says Tony Blankley, the Washington Times columnist.

Tony Blankley also believes that the danger is that Obama’s policy in Afghanistan might fall between the cracks and appear to neither call upon enough troops to try to really dominate the countryside and support the people, nor get them out fast enough so the US doesn’t lose a lot of soldiers unnecessarily.
