Today marks 39 days since U.S. and NATO General Stanley McChrystal delivered his request for more troops to President Obama.  In his report, McChrystal warns the president of "mission failure" if current troop levels in Afghanistan remain unchanged. 

Meanwhile, the Times (UK) is reporting that troop morale is increasingly low as soldiers have no real guidance on their mission and are seriously restricted in accomplishing any goals by "rules of engagement."
