Obama Decision Making on Afghanistan
This is a great article on how Obama came to make his decision to increase the troop levels in Afghanistan. It also comes with a tremendous graphic that includes so many people that one studies in government. Additionally there is a link to Obama's speech if you need it again. Since I am starting my policy unit in two weeks, this will be a perfect item to read for my students esp since it has so many references to so many exec branch players such as SecDef, SecState, CIA director, NSC, Chair Joint Chiefs, OMB, etc.
