"President Barack Obama has announced the withdrawal of 10,000 US troops from Afghanistan this year and another 23,000 by the end of September 2012. Speaking from the White House, he said it was 'the beginning, but not the end, of our effort to wind down this war.' Mr Obama's announcement, after a month-long strategy review, outlined the exit of the forces he sent to the country at the end of 2009 as part of a 'surge.'" (06/22/11)
