Barack Obama furious at General Stanley McChrystal speech on Afghanistan - Telegraph: "In London, Gen McChrystal, who heads the 68,000 US troops in Afghanistan as well as the 100,000 Nato forces, flatly rejected proposals to switch to a strategy more reliant on drone missile strikes and special forces operations against al-Qaeda.
He told the Institute of International and Strategic Studies that the formula, which is favoured by Vice-President Joe Biden, would lead to 'Chaos-istan'. When asked whether he would support it, he said: 'The short answer is: No.' He went on to say: 'Waiting does not prolong a favorable outcome. This effort will not remain winnable indefinitely, and nor will public support.'
The remarks have been seen by some in the Obama administration as a barbed reference to the slow pace of debate within the White House."
So then Obama and McChrystal had their little tete-a-tete in Copenhagen, and now the White House is leaking these items about how they are unhappy with his rhetoric. And over the weekend the Taliban made headlines with an attack that killed ten Americans.
