The Afghan "Surge"

A month or so ago, we attended a wedding and during the reception spoke with two active-duty military types.

They both remarked that 'the buildup was on' in Afghanistan at that time.

It's likely, then, that the Afghan troop-buildup had been going on for about 90-120 days, meaning that it was planned 180 days ago or so.

We learned in the last few days that The O-and-Savior, while campaigning in Iraq, thinks that an Afghan buildup should be executed.

Well, good, Obama. I'm sure that's noted someplace.
