The New York Times was reporting yesterday that the "Biden Option" isn't the "significant reduction in troops" the London Times is reporting it is: http://wp.me/pnWUd-22n

From my understanding, the "Biden Option" is a remobilization of troops to the border, away from policing, to underplay the perception of propping up Kabul with the strategy shift of an 'intel surge' and strong-arming the Pak gov't to put ISAF troops alongside the Pak Army on the ground. I could be wrong, but Obama officials said after that meeting that a "significant reduction in troops" wasn't even an option on the table, yet the "Biden Option" still is, from what I gathered in that NYT report.
