US Plan Would End Combat in Afghanistan by 2014

Hosted by

President Hamid Karzai said yesterday he wants the US military to reduce both the visibility and intensity of its presence in Afghanistan. Today a spokesman said that was not intended as a vote of "no confidence" in General David Petraeus. But at the same time, the Obama Administration is planning to transfer duties to Afghan forces and withdrawing from combat by 2014. We hear more from Peter Baker, White House correspondent for the New York Times, and Professor Christine Fair of Georgetown University.
