Big Afghanistan Troop Announcement At State Of Union Speech

Posted by wlpo on February 12, 2013

WASHINGTON (AP) – A person familiar with President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address says he will announce that 34,000 U.S. troops will be home from Afghanistan one year from today.

That’s about half the U.S. troops currently in Afghanistan. The decision marks the next phase in Obama’s plans to end the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan by the end of 2014.
