No Obama decision on Afghan until after Thanksgiving
Advertisements [?]

President Barack Obama's announcement of a new strategy on Afghanistan will not take place until after the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday next week, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said on Friday.

Obama is considering whether to add thousands more U.S. troops to Afghanistan. He said during a just-concluded trip to Asia that he would like to end the war during his presidency.

Aides have said repeatedly that Obama is weeks away from his decision. Gibbs confirmed by email that no announcement was expected before the Thursday Thanksgiving holiday.
