Deciding what to do in Afghanistan will take awhile longer. Reuters is reporting the White House has put off consideration of sending more troops to Afghanistan while it assesses whether its war strategy can still work after a flawed election that cast doubt on the Kabul government's legitimacy, officials said on Tuesday.

Gen. David Petraeus is a little bit closer to becoming the next commander of the Afghanistan war. The Senate Armed Services Committee has voted in favor of the appointment. It now goes to the full Senate. He will replace Gen. Stanley McChrystal. He was fired last week for making disparaging remarks in an interview about administration officials. Petraeus could be confirmed by the weekend.

"He really in meeting with him didn't try to explain it, he just acknowledged that he had made a terrible decision," said Secretary of Defense Robert Gates.

He made a severe mistake and I think the actions that were taken were appropriate."
