WASHINGTON, Oct 31 (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama is unlikely to make a decision on his Afghanistan strategy and sending thousands more troops there before he embarks on his trip to Asia on Nov. 11, a senior administration official said on Saturday.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, stressed that while a decision was unlikely before then, it had not been ruled out.
With violence this year reaching its worst levels in Afghanistan since the Taliban was ousted by U.S.-backed Afghan forces in 2001, Obama is under pressure to spell out U.S. plans.
It is unclear if Obama would wait until he returned from his Nov. 11 -20 trip to unveil his decision or announce it while he was traveling in the region.
Okay okay I did just quote a Reuters article. I know. But you zee, Baraque Ubama is a militarist neo-con.
