Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is urging President Barack Obama to increase the number of U.S. troops stationed in Afghanistan.
Palin says in a posting on her Facebook page Tuesday that this is "not the time for cold feet, second thoughts, or indecision."
Instead, the former Alaska governor writes it's time "to act as commander in chief and approve the troops so clearly needed in Afghanistan."
Palin's posting comes as Obama decides whether to add to the 21,000 additional U.S. troops sent earlier this year.
The top three U.S. military officials overseeing the war favor continuing the fight against an emboldened Taliban and have concluded they need tens of thousands more U.S. troops beyond the 68,000 already there.
