Obama's Afghanistan Decision

This is what General David Petraeus said to Joe Scarborough (on MSNBC 12/2/09) when he asked if Obama had been "dithering" about our course of action:

This process was actually quite good, Joe. It was a very substantive discussion. Everybody's assumptions and views were tested. I think out of this have come sharpened objectives, a very good understanding of the challenges and the difficulties and what must be done in a much more detailed and nuanced fashion.
