Report: McChrystal satisfied with additional 34,000 troops

That’s according to unnamed “military sources,” although under the circumstances, anonymous intermediaries may be more credible than an on-the-record interview. For obvious reasons, McChrystal couldn’t object to this publicly even if he wanted to, especially given the uproar after his speech in London.

Even better: Assuming NBC’s tipsters are right, there’s no timetable for withdrawal in The One’s plan. That’s a great relief given the emphasis on “off-ramps” lately.

Public education math skills. Let’s see:; 40,000 more troops needed in one year or we lose the war. 4,500×3=40,000. Ya I guess your correct.

Wow that is so awesome that adding more troops was Palin’s idea and Obama listened to Palin.
