Obama charts end to Afghan war by 2016

Published: 05.28.14, 01:41 / Israel News

President Barack Obama announced plans Tuesday for keeping nearly 10,000 US troops in Afghanistan after this year but then withdrawing virtually all by the close of 2016 and the conclusion of his presidency, charting an end to America's longest war.

 

The drawdown would allow Obama to bring America's military engagement in Afghanistan to an end while seeking to protect the gains made in a war in which he significantly intensified US involvement. (AP)
