There are now disputed reports that the number is closer to 40, 45K troops.
But no confirmation from the White House.

Do you think something big will happen in Afghanistan? The news has been slow the last couple of days, they are still trailing the swine flu campaign but they haven't gone gung ho about anything new. All I see is Michael Jackson's new song released. Obama added 10,000 troops to afghanistan, less than what the generals wanted, but a large gathering nonetheless. There is also the DOW increasing by 10,000, do you think it will continue to rise or fall? Are we really "out of the recession?" I'd just like some feedback from you guys.
