Last night the President announced plans to send 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan, and at the same time he announced that the combat soldiers will not stay indefinitely; he'll begin withdrawing them in 2011.

Joining us now is Robert Naiman. Naiman is policy director of Just Foreign Policy and co-creator of the website http://NoEscalation.org, which enables Americans to track where their representatives in Congress stand on military escalation in Afghanistan.
