Media is still being creative, nothing has been released yet from the white house, Yes Gordon Brown has been out spoken but as yet Obama has not said a Dicky bird.
US President Barack Obama has issued new orders for the US military in Afghanistan after deciding how many more troops to send, officials say.
Mr Obama told senior military leaders about his long-awaited decision on troop numbers on Sunday night, a White House spokesman said.
The president is now briefing the UK, French and Russian leaders on the plan.
The moves come as British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said he would send 500 more soldiers to the country.
According to US media reports, Mr Obama is set to formally announce that a further 30,000 troops are to be sent to Afghanistan in a televised address on Tuesday.
