Obama to announce plans for Afghan surge pullout
from The New York Times
President Obama plans to announce his decision on the scale and pace of troop withdrawals from Afghanistan in an upcoming speech, an administration official said. As he closes in on a decision, another official said, Obama is considering options that range from a Pentagon-backed proposal to pull out only 5,000 troops this year to an aggressive plan to withdraw within 12 months all 30,000 troops the United States deployed to Afghanistan as part of the surge in December 2009.
