Washington Post Reports Gibberishly

The Washington Post indicates that President Obama increased the total number of troops in Afghanistan by 13,000 without telling anyone about it.

The title of their article is "Support Troops Swelling U.S. Force in Afghanistan". But some of the text inside the article seems contradictory:
On Afghanistan, White House and Pentagon spokesmen differed over exactly what the president has approved.

Obama announced in a March 27 speech that he was approving 21,000 troops, and a White House spokesman said that the president did not approve any other increases before or after. Asked for more details on the troop authorizations, spokesman Tommy Vietor said the Pentagon was better suited to provide such "technical information."
(WaPo). The story then, is that there is a dispute over how many troops 21,000 really is.

The gibbersish that WaPo calls news is just one more reason newspapers are in trouble financially and why some are washed up.

The paper is see through like saran wrap.
