Dempsey Wants Afghan Troops Agreement by October

Associated Press reports that “America’s top general says he would like to see a security agreement with Afghanistan signed by October, which would give NATO enough time to prepare for a post-2014 military presence.”

“Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he has not been asked to prepare for a “zero option” with no American forces in the Afghanistan after 2014.”

“But Dempsey warns that a failure to sign a security agreement will mean that no American forces will remain in the country after the pullout date.”
