Two months have passed since General Stanley McCrystal requested the additional troops necessary to implement the new Afghanistan strategy announced (with great fanfare) by President Obama in March.
Still no response from the President.
The delay is embarrassing. Violence in Afghanistan and Pakistan is escalating, US troops are suffering increasing casualties, and the Commander-in-Chief is AWOL.
President Obama is entering his 10th month in office. Whole wars have been planned AND executed in 10 months.
To not have settled on a strategy for Afghanistan by now is unconscionable.
