"This evening, President Barack Obama is set to announce his plan for withdrawing troops from Afghanistan. ... With Osama bin Laden out of the picture, both conservatives and liberals — including Prospect contributor Matthew Yglesias — have pressured the president to expedite the pullout. Others, including outgoing Defense Secretary Robert Gates and, reportedly, General David Petraeus, have argued for a slower reduction. But as Americans debate the speed of the drawdown, other important questions have been put on the backburner." (06/22/11)
