Obama Sits Down With McChrystal on Air Force One

At last Obama is getting the skinny strait from the source. I will be willing to be that McChrystal will pull no punches and tell Obama exactly what he needs to hear.

The 25-minute meeting with Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, aboard Air Force One as it waited to carry the president home from Denmark, gave Obama a chance to step outside the circle of advisers he has convened to study the problem of Afghanistan.

I hope this won't be the last of these one-on-one assessments. I have to hand it to Obama since he is actually talking to the commander and hopefully will get the unvarnished truth. Now the proof will be if Obama commits another 40,000 troops and see if we can hold Afghanistan together until their army can take over.
