McChrystal Envisions an End to the War
Courtesy of a Republican congressman, quoted by The Associated Press’s Deb Reichmann:
Even Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, is giving hints, albeit privately, about a possible endgame.
, a Republican congressman from Colorado, said this week that during his visit to Kabul, he asked McChrystal: “If you get these troops that you are requesting, the 40,000, where’s the ? At what point will we begin to draw down?” According to Coffman, McChrystal responded: “Sometime before 2013.”
Watching the GOP try to use McChrystal as a wedge against Obama next week in his congressional testimony is going to be awesome.
