"10,000 troops are set to be home by the end of the year, and another 23,000 by fall 2012, yet President Obama’s plan still leaves more than more than twice as many troops in Afghanistan at the beginning of 2013 -- about 70,000 -- than when he took office in January 2009. 
Antiwar groups are pleased a drawdown is beginning, but they’re not celebrating Obama’s final withdrawal date of 2014. They want a more rapid end to the longest war in American history -- a war costing taxpayers $10 billion per month." [editor's note: Gee, if only those "taxpayers" would just stop "paying" for it?
