Obama at war with his general

(SFGATE.COM) — /SNIP/ According to McClatchy Newspapers, military officials in Kabul and Washington say that the White House and Pentagon over the past six weeks had issued directives telling McChrystal not to submit a specific request for an increase in U.S. forces; the general is said to want as many as 45,000 additional troops. The administration isn’t ready to consider that option. Instead, McChrystal sent his 66-page report last month to Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
