Krauthammer Does Not Believe Obama will give Gen. McChrystal the Troops He Needs for Afghanistan - Video 9/27/09
Here is video of Charles Krauthammer on a "Panel Plus" segment of Fox News Sunday saying he does not think President Obama will give Gen. Stanley McChrystal the troops he needs in Afghanistan, and that he believes McChrystal will resign as a result.
Krauthammer had also pointed out how destructive it is for Obama to be waffling on Afghanistan for weeks while our allies look on. He believes our Allies, who are "hanging by a thread" on support of the war effort there, will not be strengthened in their resolve by Obama's actions.
McChrystal himself, when asked on 60 Minutes last night if he was confident he would get what he needs from President Obama, would only say he is confident he can makes his assessment as to the needs in Afghanistan. In other words - "No" - he is not confident Obama will give him what he needs to win.
How sad is that?
