U.S. Military Says Its Force in Afghanistan Is Insufficient

American military commanders with the NATO mission in Afghanistan told President Obama’s chief envoy to the region this weekend that they did not have enough troops to do their job, pushed past their limit by Taliban rebels who operate across borders.

The possibility that more troops will be needed in Afghanistan presents the Obama administration with another problem in dealing with a nearly eight-year war that has lost popularity at home, compounded by new questions over the credibility of the Afghan government, which has just held an as-yet inconclusive presidential election beset by complaints of fraud.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder from precisely where these additional troops are supposed to come, given the current stress the US military is under with commitments in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Given the muscularity of Obama's foreign policy objectives, you have to wonder at what point a draft will be reinstituted in this country.
