Obama to announce 34,000 U.S. troops to be home from Afghanistan in 1 year

The unwinding of the Afghanistan war

From the piece:

President Barack Obama will announce in his State of the Union address that 34,000 U.S. troops will be home from Afghanistan within a year, two people familiar with his remarks said Tuesday.

That’s about half the U.S. forces currently serving there, and marks the next phase in the administration’s plans to formally finish the war by the end of 2014.
