Obama makes decision on Afghanistan . . . whoops . . . not so fast. White House says Obama still indecisive.

CBS News reported today (link here) that President Barack Obama had made a decision - finally - to heed the advice of General Stanley McChrystal (given in September) and send about 40,000 more troops to Afghanistan.

McChrystal, and the boots on the ground, must have been pleased.

But the feeling was short-lived.  This evening the White House issued a response saying, "reports that President Obama has made a decision about Afghanistan are absolutely false."  (See previous link.)

Nope.  No decision yet.  Isn't it about time that this guy learned to be a decider?

Or is this decision, like so many others, above Barack Obama's pay grade?
