Harry Reid Says Obama is "Not Going to be Leisure" About Decision on Afghanistan Troop Levels and Strategy - Video 10/6/09

Here is video of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi talking to the press outside the White House after meeting with President Obama today as part of a bipartisan group of Congressional Leaders on our strategy going forward in Afghanistan.

Harry Reid spoke first, saying it was an excellent meeting that allowed everyone to share their views.

He was followed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who said there was "some agreement" in the room and "some diversity of opinion."

At one point, Harry Reid was about to speak to a question and before he could open his mouth Nancy Pelosi jumped back in to give one of her non-answer answers!

Reid said Obama told them he is "not going to rush into this" - a decision on troop levels - but that he was not "going to be leisure about it at all."

NOTE: I think it's too late for Obama to "not be leisure" about deciding on Afghanistan.
