Securing America: Securing Afghanistan’s Future
President Obama has returned to Washington with an understanding with members of the coalition in Afghanistan that things are about to change.
FOX News Radio White House Correspondent Mike Majchrowitz is in Chicago with details in our ongoing series on national security:
The President sees NATO and other allies now unified on a plan for getting out of Afghanistan without leaving that country isolated. By 2014, all foreign combat troops will be out. But member countries pledged to continue to assist Afghanistan in other ways, like training and advice.
And there was talk about covering the $4 billion a year Afghanistan is expected to need to pay for its security forces.
(President Obama) “It’s been encouraging to see a number of countries making significant financial commitments to sustain Afghanistan’s progress.”
But there were few firm pledges that included dollar amounts.
