AFTER WORD LEAKED OUT THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN SITTING ON GEN. MCCHRYSTAL'S REPORT FOR SIX WEEKS, REPORTS INDICATE OABMA IS FURIOUS

I've been asking my liberal plan for months? What is President Obama's Affghanistan plan? What is the "exit strategy" the left raised for years during the Bush administration?

The top commander in Afghanistan, Gen. Stanley McChrystal indicated a couple of weeks ago that he'd only talked to the president once since last Spring.

After he requested more troops, the President indicated he would first have to evaluate his "strategy," you know, the one he put in place himself.

Then in Copenhagen last week, after Gen McChrystal had given in speech in London about the war effort, President Obama summoned him for a 25 minute meeting.

Unfortunately, we usually have to go to the foreign press for more information, and here is what the UK Telegraph had to say:

Hhmmmmm ... Obama "furious" with McChrystal?

I wonder why, and I wonder if our own media will find the time to explore the story and to ask why?

Of course, our military leaders are very good about not getting involved in politics so any answer will come from one side.

Still, I'd like to know ... what is going on over there? After campaigning on the importance of victory in Afghanistan, the President is suddenly making statements referring Afghanistan as a "NATO" operation, and saying he's put off by terms like "victory."

I've had relatives there and, as far as that goes, ALL the men and women there are our friends, brothers, sisters, etc.

What's up, Mr. President? What are we doing there? What is your strategy? And please spare me sound-bite answers about "keeping America safe" and so forth. Are we committed to your goal and what is that goal anyway? I'm betting you won't be going back on Letterman any time soon so you should have a little more time to answer these questions.
