The Taliban claimed responsibility for the deadliest attack for coalition forces since a similar raid in July 2008 killed nine American soldiers in the same mountainous region known as an al-Qaida haven. The U.S. has already said it plans to pull its soldiers from the isolated area to focus on Afghan population centers." Hey Obama, its been over a month since you recieved the request for more troops. Don't make the decision a priority or anything. Its not like people are dying.
