And not address the soldiers? Obama sends 12,000 troops overseas to Afghanistan and 5,000 left with unspecified orders, why as the Commander in Chief did he not address the soldiers, but instead act as if it weren't happening at all?
No gonads in my opinion.
Ok...I know ya'll want to protect him but he is a big boy. The FIRST time Bush sent troops he addressed them and the nation. this the FIRST time Obama is ending troops....he should address them as their commander and chief , and he should address the nation because, once again, it's the FIRST time HE is sending them.
AND I am awful tired of the "bush did it" replies. Obama is supposseed to bring CHANGE...there fore it stands to reason that he should be doing things DIFFERENT!

Obama's campaign words, Afghanistan was going to be the "Good War "
President Bush's announced his troop surge for the war in Iraq before a prime-time audience on TV. He addressed the nation. Obama didn't. He made his statement through his "messenger". Perhaps he is living up to his Attorney Generals statement and expanding the ideology of "We are a nation of Cowards" to include how his adminstration plans to address the military?
The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, Gen. David McKiernan, had requested 30,000 troops. On Tuesday, the president authorized 17,000 troops.

What Bush admitted to was that we weren't all prepared to go into Iraq.What I wonder is are we ever really throughly prepared?
