Obama Says US Finishing The Job In Afghanistan
President Barack Obama says the United States is finishing the job it started in Afghanistan. The president says he will seek to bring the U.S. force in Afghanistan down to 9,800 as the American combat mission ends later this year. He then intends to withdraw most those forces by the end of 2016. Obama said from the Rose Garden on Tuesday, quote: “This is the year we will conclude our combat mission in Afghanistan.” He said the forces have struck significant blows against al-Qaida’s leadership, eliminated Osama bin Laden and prevented Afghanistan from being used as a base against the U.S.
