The West Point Speech


as seen through Wordle

The West Point Speech according to Wordle

A lot of people are hurrying to strike a position either pro or against the troop escalation and the plan as it was presented by the President at West Point. Some had made that position clear even before the speech was delivered. Others seek to score cheap political points off this tragic situation.

I am struck by the enormity of the challenge and the unpalatable alternatives. I don’t know what the best solution should be or if the one proposed tonight will work.

I pray that it does. For us, for the people of Afghanistan and especially for the troops and their families.
