US Plans to Withdraw Some Troops from Afghanistan

Hosted by

President Obama has said his July draw-down of troops from Afghanistan will be "significant," but US military staff in Afghanistan are proposing a modest 5000 to go home in July and another 5000 before the end of the year. There are 100,000 troops there now. That's according to today's Wall Street Journal in a story co-authored by Julian Barnes.
