It gives me no joy to suggest that perhaps The LEADER OF THE WORLD is more concerned at present about "bigger things" than "just" 2 soldiers. As long as the KIAs stay "manageable" his political handlers can continue to delay a decision on McChrystal's request in hopes of coming up with a suitable political smokescreen. Bad drills all round.
