President won’t accept any of the Afghanistan war options presented by his national security team, pushing instead to clarify when responsibility would be turned over to the Afghan government.

That stance comes in the midst of forceful reservations about a possible troop buildup from the U.S. ambassador in Afghanistan, Karl Eikenberry, according to a second top administration official.

This is what happens, when you send a boy, to do a man’s job.  obama, you bring the ultimate shame to the office of Commander in Chief.
