U.S. Military Will Hit Afghanistan Troop Target Next Month

Military Times reports that “the U.S. military is on track to reduce the number of troops in Afghanistan by another 1,400 over the next month, military officials said.”

“President Obama last July announced his decision to keep 8,400 troops in the country through January 2017 instead of his original plan of 5,500, calling the security situation ‘precarious.’”

“There are currently 9,800 uniformed Americans directly supporting the mission in Afghanistan, Department of Defense spokesman Adam Stump told Military Times.”
