Bad for troop morale

"National Security Adviser James Jones today chided General Stanley McChrystal, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, for his public push for a big increase in American troops and said he expected that McChrystal and other military leaders "will be willing to present different options and different scenarios" as President Obama decides on his next step."

It's wrong to send troops into battle without a strategy. It's worse to send them into battle during a public debate over strategy.
