Obama's speech

Pres. Obama has called on our troops to fight and die in Afghanistan for 18 months after which he may decide to surrender, depending on the "conditions on the ground."  Is that the kind of leadership that you would find inspiring?

One of the more bizarre passages in the speech was:
On September 11, 2001, nineteen men hijacked four airplanes and used them to murder nearly 3,000 people. ....  They took the lives of innocent men, women, and children without regard to their faith or race or station. [Emph. added]
Why is that important to Obama?  Is he trying to offer Khalid Sheikh Mohammed a possible legal defense against charges that 9-11 was a hate-crime?

BookwormRoom has more on last night's speech.  Still more from Michelle Malkin.

He is playing around with the lives of our military and the future of the region when he should be taking decisive action. If it took him three months to come up with this solution to the problem, then I have to say that he is playing checkers while our enemy plays chess.
