Top U.S. general talks to troops

After President Obama's war strategy announcment, Gen. Stanley McChrystal addressed troops in Kandahar, Afghanistan. Speaking in the southern city of Kandahar, Gen. Stanley McChrystal said the emphasis will be in southern Afghanistan, where Taliban militants have a strong presence in places like Kandahar, Helmand, Uruzgan and Zabul provinces.

"This is the culmination of some of those changes that have already started but with the decision announced by President Obama and with many of the coalition partners indicating the the same intent, what we're going to do now is be in tremendous position to go forward.  ... I have exceptional confidence right now."
