The drawdown begins

I don’t have much to say on President Obama’s decision to start the withdrawals. It is certainly the right thing to do, and the rate at which they will be pulled out sounds like the right pace, but I don’t have enough information to make a decision.

I am intrigued by the reported position of the military vs the President. He doesn’t want the surge troops to be extended for an additional eighteen months, while the military guys are saying that it’s just one more “fighting season”. I think we’ve heard that argument before.

It's only one more season
