In the least surprising announcement since forever, Barack Obama today announced that some time next week he intends to announce his strategy for Afghanistan. Prior to that widely expected declaration he made the similarly unstartling claims that he had 'a comprehensive strategy' and that it was his intention to 'finish the job'. Obama refused to say when he intends to make his strategy announcement or how many troops will be involved, although the answers to those questions are widely believed to be 8:00 PM Tuesday and 34,000.

"I feel very confident that when the American people hear a clear rationale for what we're doing there and how we intend to achieve our goals, they will be supportive," Obama said, without the slightest hint of irony in his voice.
