President Obama To Consider Sending More Troops To Afghanistan

The call for more troops to Afghanistan is not getting an immediate green light from President Barack Obama.

President Obama says it's going to be a "very deliberate process" in making the decision to send more troops to war. Obama's top military adviser endorsed an increase in U.S. forces Wednesday, saying it would probably be necessary to fight a deepening insurgency in Afghanistan.

46 American troops died in Afghanistan in August alone. Camp Lejeune Marines are deployed there right now.
