Audience analysis on Obama

The Times has a pretty good analysis on the strategies Obama may use when announcing his apparent troop increase for Afghanistan next week. Part of this strategy is already apparent in the pattern of press leaks coming out of the White House.  I think this move, along with a quiet (and underreported) snubbing of the international mine ban treaty, is a huge mistake – not to mention oddly and ironically timed as he is due to accept the Peace Prize in two weeks – but it will be interesting to see how he constructs it as the right decision out of many options.
