What a Surprise - Obama Ready to Surrender Afghanistan

Barack Obama 'to reject Afghanistan war options in favour of plan with clear exit strategy' - Telegraph
According to US reports, it is not the first time he has asked for the four options thought to have been presented to him to be rewritten and he is putting up considerable resistance to the strategy put forward by the Gen Stanley McChrystal, the US Nato commander in Afghanistan, to increase troop numbers by 40,000 for a counterinsurgency drive.

Other options on the table include sending between 10,000 and 15,000 troops who will focus on training Afghan forces.
Not a surprise.
