ICYMI: Obama on Afghanistan’s Troop Increase and End Date

Not sure if you caught this last night…since Tiger Woods has now sorta admitted that he did something…but US President Obama said he’s increasing the number of US troops in Afghanistan, pulling out troops in Iraq and ending the US presence in Afghanistan by the end of summer 2011.

Some say the speech was almost like Obama giving up, others feel it was practical considering the economical/ war situation Obama was left with, others say you don’t give your enemy your departure date…I’m on the practical side, but where do you fall?

Check out the full speech after the jump…
