President Obama calling home some troops
In a prime time speech last night, President Obama spoke to the nation about his plans to wind down the now 10-year war in Afghanistan. How many of the “surge” troops are coming home and when? What about the troops left behind? What impact will these withdrawals have on the ground in Afghanistan? Is the troop withdrawal significant enough to appease critics who want the U.S. military out of Afghanistan NOW? If we go, will there be trouble? Or if we stay, will it be doubled?
