One comment on “Withdrawal from Afghanistan

  1. The United States will spend “in the vicinity” of $20 billion on the military presence in Afghanistan in 2015 while narrowing the mission in 2015 to one of training and counterterrorism and ending the combat role, National Security Advisor Antony Blinken told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

    The United States plans to keep 9,800 troops in Afghanistan after this year and reduce that by about half by the end of 2015, President Obama announced earlier Tuesday. By the end of 2016, he said, the military “will draw down to a normal embassy presence in Kabul, with a security assistance component.”
