Obama To Send Troops To Afghanistan Right After Speech

The Washington Post is reporting that President Obama will send 9,000 additional Marines to Afghanistan shortly after his Tuesday night prime time speech announcing how many more troops will be deployed there.

Obama has been criticized for taking so long to make a decision on General Stanley McChrystal's request for 40,000 more troops in Afghanistan. The quick deployment of troops may be designed to put to an end the perception that he is an indecisive commander-in-chief.
