Obama To McChrystal Report: Drop Dead

By Wyatt Earp | September 27, 2009

<i>Yeah whatever, Marine.</i>

Yeah whatever, Marine.

Hey, remember that additional troop request by General McChrystal last week? The Obama administration is putting the urgent request on their summer reading list.

Summer of 2010, I suppose.

After everyone else had heard what General Stanley McChrystal needs for his mission to succeed in Afghanistan, the Obama administration of the report that requests a significant troop increase for the Af-Pak theater. However, Barack Obama will not officially get to see it for a while. The Pentagon says they will hold his request, officially, until Obama officially makes an official decision about the officially official policy he wants to officially pursue in the war:

The White House says it wants to review the entire strategy for the region before considering McChrystal’s request.

“Right now the focus is on the strategic assessment itself. It (the troop request) will be shelved until such time that the White House is ready,” a defense official said in Washington.

Er … what? Doesn’t the strategic assessment include required troop strengths? McChrystal’s report should be a key part of those considerations, since the strategic considerations rely on having the force strength required to support the strategy. (H/THot Air)

When asked about the idiocy of putting the request on hold – like you know, while the fighting continues – an Obama spokesperson said the report was being examined by “top men.”

What men?

“Top. Men.”

    “Top men.”

    I wondered where Van Jones would turn up.

    (Oh, OT, but looking around…is this something you might now appreciate? )

    serr8d – Bawahahahahahaha! That’s hilarious! I heard you were banned, too. Something really wrong is going on over there. Every good regular poster has been banned by Mad King Charles, and LGF isn’t worth a thing anymore.

    All of this will be chronicled in the forthcoming movie Raiders of the Lost National Security Strategy, coming soon to a theater near you.

    I thought McCrystal was a top man, hand picked by the Big O. And I guess that means that Hillary Clinton is not improved in the review. Then again maybe that means she is.

    Ingineer66 – I still think she’ll try to run against the POTUS in 2012.
