As Obama mulls over the decision whether or not to send 40,000 more troops to Afghanistan, there’s another pressing issue that needs to be discussed. And that is their rules of engagement once they’re there.  Uncle Jimbo at Blackfive wrote about the change in tactics, which took place in July, here, and more recently about 4 deaths that have been attributed to them, here.

McChrystal’s Folly

by John Bernard, 1st Sgt, ret.

Father of the late Lance Corporal Joshua Bernard, the name may be familiar.
