Winding Down

Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Obama met at the White House on Jan. 11 to discuss the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. They announced that the process for Afghan troops taking the security lead would move more quickly than planned. "Starting this spring our troops will have a different mission — training, advising and assisting Afghan forces," Obama said.
