Huntsman Calls for 'Aggressive Drawdown' in Afghanistan

Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, just hours after announcing his bid for the White House Tuesday, called for an "aggressive drawdown" of troops in Afghanistan.

Though Huntsman said he didn't have "specifics" on a plan for withdrawal, he said the U.S. "should begin a fairly aggressive drawdown," while "leaving behind a counter-terror effort that is appropriately matched to the threat we face."
