Obama To Keep Nearly 10-Thousand Troops In Afghanistan

(Washington, DC) -- President Obama plans to keep nearly 10-thousand U.S. troops in Afghanistan after the end of this year. The President will talk about the Afghan mission in a statement from the White House at 2:45 this afternoon, Eastern time. Obama previously set the end of 2014 as the end of combat operations in the Afghan war. A senior administration official says the remaining troops will continue involvement in training Afghan security forces and advising on counterterrorism efforts.
