President Obama will hold a prime-time speech tonight, live from West Point, about the Afghanistan strategy. The President announced earlier today that “The 30,000 additional troops that I am announcing tonight will deploy in the first part of 2010 – the fastest pace possible – so that they can target the insurgency and secure key population centers. They will increase our ability to train competent Afghan Security Forces, and to partner with them so that more Afghans can get into the fight. And they will help create the conditions for the United States to transfer responsibility to the Afghans.” Tune in at 8:00pm (ET) at livestream.com/myfoxny to watch the highly anticipated speech take place.
