The Commander in Chief in Afghanistan

Barack Obama promised during his campaign he would take the fight back to Al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan. He's done that and has the casualties to show for it, as well as a Christmas Day airline bombing attempt. And shows no sign that he will back down.

President Obama addresses our troops at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan on Sunday. He flew in and flew out under cover of darkness.

You have to admire the American soldiers. I recall the steely resolve with which President Obama was received at West Point last year. Many of those graduating cadets are now serving their first commissions in Afghanistan.
