Obama Issues Order for More Troops in Afghanistan

Hosted by

President Obama has issued orders for tens of thousands of additional US troops to go to Afghanistan. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs addressed the issues of cost and an exit strategy by saying that the troop increase "is not an open-ended commitment." Republicans, who support an increase of troops, are suggesting that domestic issues be set aside, at least for the moment. Peter Speigel of the Wall Street Journal reports on what we can expect to hear when the President addresses the nation tomorrow night .
