Afghanistan Surge – Do You Know Why the President Said Yes?

Posted on November 29, 2009 by

Here’s what we’ll be wondering as we watch President Obama announce his decision on Tuesday to send additional troops to Afghanistan:

  • Why couldn’t he say no to the Generals?
  • Was he afraid of another fight with Republicans?
  • Does this doom his domestic agenda?
  • Do anti-war Democrats matter?
  • Is this another Vietnam?
  • How many will die?
  • Is Obama a one-term president?
  • What if it works?

Was the president intimidated by military strategists and conservative bullies?  Is he making an independent judgment regarding what’s best for our country?

Or both?
