Dear Obama: Can We Have a Plan for Afghanistan Please?

Dear President Obama,

Can we have a plan for Afghanistan please?  I know things like the Olympics, date-night, and voting “present” on just about all the issues of the day are super, super important for American and the world, but in case the vigor of your schedule has caused the brilliant recesses of your vast intellect to become temporarily cluttered, I think having a plan for the War in Afghanistan would be very, very nice to have along with your taxpayer funded date-nights. 

With eight more soldiers killed today, wouldn’t it be swell if we could have more details on that grand strategy you’ve had since March or have listened to General McChrystal’s recommendations without the prompting of embarrassing media coverage of your neglect?  I think it would. 

So, before too many more soldiers get killed in Afghanistan,wouldn’t it be great if you could come up with a specific, victory-oriented plan before next year?  Our soldiers are the best in the world and can accomplish whatever we ask of them, but they need a well-defined mission too.  I mean, if our soldiers are to still be deployed and be in pitched battles and possibly wounded and killed, wouldn’t it make sense if they also had a goal or big picture to strive for?  I’m just sayin’.
