A Day Late and a Dollar Short …

… where I came from that colloquialism is used to describe someone who exhibits lackluster commitment toward achieving true success.  The Commander in Chief is ninety days late and a fair number of troops short on his “strategy” for Afghanistan.  I have been reading the declassified version of the report that General McChrystal delivered to the Secretary of Defense on August 30th.  Today is December 1st.  The General made a compelling argument about time being of the essence in that report.  His strategy is clear and cogent and makes irrefutable common sense.  I pray that God will uphold our troops in spite of the lack of support in the Oval Office.  I have never before in my lifetime questioned that the President was on the same side as American troops in the field.  God help us.
