"Leon Panetta, the man selected to be the next Defense secretary, said he supports a 'responsible' military withdrawal in Afghanistan beginning next month, sidestepping questions on whether he backs the 'significant' drawdown President Obama has pledged. Panetta, the current CIA director, told senators that the United States has made enough progress in the Afghan war to give Obama meaningful options for the troop withdrawal. But he said the size and pace must depend on battlefield conditions." (06/07/11)
