Obama Finalizes Decision On Afghan Troop Withdrawal
The president has made a final decision on the pace and scope of the U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, the White House announced today, while refusing to comment on any of the specifics.

In an address to the nation tomorrow night Obama will announce his blueprint to begin withdrawing troops in July, a promise he made when he ordered the 30,000 troop “surge.” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said today that the president’s decision process was “all about the mission that was laid out in December of 2009.”
