Did I say in stone?

What a short turn around from setting an end date, to talking about a date when things will begin to change towards an end date. In case you don't know already Obama is not a new type of politician, he is the same as the rest.

To take some of the sting out of his decision to send an additional 30,000 troops to Afghanistan, President Obama laid out an exit strategy by setting a date -- July 2011 -- on which troops will begin withdrawing. The president, through Robert Gibbs, described the date as "locked in," "etched in stone," and having "no flexibility. Troops will start coming home in July, 2011. Period."

Sounds pretty definite.

But just four days later, members of Obama's cabinet were directly contradicting their boss.
