Afghan officials skeptical as US mulls complete withdrawal

The United States is considering pulling out all its troops from Afghanistan next year but is far from making a decision, White House and Pentagon officials said on Tuesday, but Afghan officials expressed skepticism that President Barack Obama would back a complete withdrawal.


Amid tensions between Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai on the path forward, White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters that a "zero option" of leaving no US troops in Afghanistan after 2014 is among the policy possibilities under consideration. (Reuters)
