    Senior US government figures have rejected criticism of President Barack Obama's plan to start withdrawing troops from Afghanistan in 2011.

    President Obama announced last week that the US would boost troop numbers, but start pulling out by July 2011.

    State Secretary Hillary Clinton said it was not a "drop-dead deadline", while Defence Secretary Robert Gates said it was "the beginning of a process".

    Mr Gates also said the whereabouts of Osama Bin Laden were unknown.

    He said it had been "years" since the US last had any good intelligence about his movements.


    I can't help but think the Obama administration is clueless about the direction the war should take.

    That is irrelevant.

    I have to agree with you on that one.

    That your criticism is completely rooted in partisanship... is irrelevant?

    well, there is no evidence of that, and Im not an american, there's no way I could be "partisan".

    And even if there was some truth to what you said, it doesn't change the fact that Obama still seems clueless about the war.
