President Obama wants his war options changed.

A senior member of the administration tells the Associated Press that the President has decided not to accept any of the war options presented.

That includes the 40,000 troops asked for by General Stanley McCrystal as well as the 35,000 troops advocated for by even members of his cabinet.

The President is said to be seeking clarifications about how and when troops would turn over security responsibility to the Afghan government.
