President Obama's Weekly Address (1/12/13)

President Obama discusses anticipated transition of US troops in Afghanistan




Following his meeting with Afghan president, Hamid Karzai, President Obama used this week's address to discuss the anticipated transition and eventual drawdown of US troops in Afghanistan:

"This week, we agreed that this spring, Afghan forces will take the lead for security across the entire country, and our troops will shift to a support role. In the coming months, I'll announce the next phase of our drawdown. And by the end of next year, America's war in Afghanistan will be over. "
