President Obama to make Afghanistan Troop Surge Speech from West Point - Video 11/30/09

Here is a video report on President Obama's upcoming speech tomorrow night to announce his decision on sending the reinforcements requested by Gen. Stanley McChrystal four months ago. Obama will make his speech from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and is expected to announce he will send 34,000 additional troops to Afghanistan, not the 40,000 requested by McChrystal.

Here is a video report by Jake Tapper on what to expect in the speech:
