The U.S. President decided to change the role of the troop from combat to support as the al-Qaeda's "only known leader" is now no more.
The United States will withdraw all 33,000 Americans troops from Afghanistan by the summer of 2012, beginning with an initial drawdown of 10,000 surge forces by this year-end, U.S. President Barack Obama said.
“Starting next month, we will be able to remove 10,000 of our troops from Afghanistan by the end of this year, and we will bring home a total of 33,000 troops by next summer, fully recovering the surge I announced at West Point (in December 2009),” Mr. Obama said in a nationally televised speech from the White House late last night.
“After this initial reduction, our troops will continue coming home at a steady pace as Afghan Security forces move into the lead. Our mission will change from combat to support. By 2014, this process of transition will be complete, and the Afghan people will be responsible for their own security,” he said.
The U.S. President said America was starting the drawdown from a position of strength, asserting that al-Qaeda was under “more pressure” than at any time since 9/11.
