Photo Highlight: Obama meets with war council

President Barack Obama's war council - made up of top Cabinet, Pentagon and administration officials - met with him for the eighth time on Wednesday,  November 11, to discuss a request by the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan for up to 40,000 more troops. The meeting lasted more than two hours, according to a senior administration official.

That official told CNN that the president asked for revisions to options he previously received for sending more troops.
