Ad Feedback

President Barack Obama is meeting with his national security team on Wednesday for the eighth time to discuss his strategy in Afghanistan.

"The president will have an opportunity to discuss four options with his national security team tomorrow," Obama's spokesman, Robert Gibbs, told reporters aboard Air Force One Tuesday.

He did not elaborate on what they were.

CBN News White House Correspondent David Brody gave an analysis of President Obama's "four options." Click play to see the report followed by his comments.

Military officials say Obama is considering adding tens of thousands of more troops, but probably not the 40,000 that Gen. Stanley McChrystal requested three months ago.

Republican senators are sending the president a letter Wednesday urging him to move quickly, saying they were concerned about the stress on the 68,000 troops currently occupying the war-torn nation.

Gibbs said a decision is still weeks away.
