Obama Rejects National Security Team's Plan.......

WASHINGTON -- After months of deliberating, President Obama opted not to accept any of the Afghanistan war options presented by his national security team, pushing instead for revisions to clarify how and when U.S. troops would turn over responsibility to the Afghan government, a senior administration official said Wednesday.

That stance comes in the midst of forceful reservations about a possible troop buildup from the U.S. ambassador in Afghanistan, Karl Eikenberry, according to a second top administration official.

In strongly worded classified cables to Washington, Eikenberry said he had misgivings about sending in new troops while there are still so many questions about the leadership of Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Instead, a possible plan by the POTUS would be to withdraw all troops currently in Afghanistan and invade Greenland.

It makes sense, as Greenland is a lot easier to subdue, the Government is not corrupt and is friendly to the United States, and he could chock up a much needed military win during his Presidency.........

Meanwhile, Troops are being killed while he makes up his mind.


On the lighter side.....I woke up on Veteran's Day without a hint of a hangover....Tipped two beers to the Marine Corps and headed back to the Lair. Amazing what having a Wife that you enjoy being with will do for a guy's late nights.

Thanks for being you, Miss Dragn.
