Obama "nearing" decision to send more troops to Afghanistan

"President Barack Obama is nearing a decision to send more than 30,000 additional U.S. troops to Afghanistan next year, but he may not announce it until after he consults with key allies and completes a trip to Asia later this month, administration and military officials have told McClatchy Newspapers."

In other words, Obama is going to send more troops to Afghanistan.

But, he doesn't want to announce it until after his latest trip abroad, to avoid any less than favorable foreign media coverage.

Explain that to the U.S. troops in Afghanistan, waiting for relief and guidance in mission limbo.
