Obama Asks Pentagon For 2014 Afghanistan Withdrawal Plan
The one good thing about this is that our troops will be out of harm’s way with Obama’s haphazard way of running our military.
Check it out:
President Obama has asked the Pentagon to plan for a complete withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan by the end of the year amid a dispute over a security pact, but continues to leave open the possibility that some troops could remain after 2014 — options he discussed Tuesday with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.
The White House detailed the “contingency planning” in a statement following the phone call between Obama and Karzai.
The two leaders spoke amid an ongoing dispute over a vital security agreement. That agreement would allow the U.S. to keep troops in Afghanistan after 2014, but Karzai is refusing to sign it, saying he wants his successor to sign the pact after elections this spring.
Obama and Karzai have rarely spoken in recent months, a reflection of the White House’s frustration with the Afghan leader.
