West Point cadets await president's Afghan plan

President Obama will announce his new military strategy for Afghanistan tonight from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

The cadets there right now enrolled during a time of war, knowing the risks. Now, the commander-in-chief could be writing their futures right in front of them. Our Deb Feyerick got reaction to the president's plan, and the war, from right outside West Point's gates in this AM original report.

    Why do we go on TV and tell our plan on what we are going to do in Afganistan? If we must go to Afganistan to accoplish a goal, then we should keep our mouth shut and not advertise it on TV.

    I feel so sorry for our military, never have they been led by a more incompetent commander in trying to be chief!!!!!!
