Obama to Add 45,000 More Troops in Afghanistan ?

The Uk Telegraph leaked this. We will see if it's true.

---The US is expected to announce a significant surge of up to 45,000 extra troops for Afghanistan after Gordon Brown said that 500 more British troops would be sent to the country....Air Chief Marshal Sir Jock Stirrup, the Chief of the Defence Staff, said: "I don't want to put words in the mouths of the Americans but I am fairly confident of the way it is going to come out."---

Also, apparently the BBC: "The BBC said the U.S. troop increase "could exceed 40,000," but it provided no source for the information."
