AP source: Obama makes no decisions on Afghan war


WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama has heard from his top national security officials about their next step forward with Afghanistan but has not made any decisions.

A senior administration official says Obama spent three hours in the White House Situation Room on Wednesday and pushed his team for specifics and details. The official, who was involved in the session, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive material.

The official says no decisions about increased troop levels were discussed; instead, the group focused on what the goals in that war-torn country should be.

The top military official for Afghanistan, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, has pushed for more troops. But Obama has delayed any decision for another meeting.
