"That's why with 49 of our allies in Afghanistan, we've agreed on a gradual drawdown so we're out of there by the year 20 — in the year 2014. My friend [Rep. Ryan] and the governor say it's based on conditions, which means it depends. It does not depend for us. ... But we are leaving. We are leaving in 2014. Period."
Heck, I completely didn't expect EVERY US citizen to be out of Afghanistan by Jan 1st 2014 by any means. Still, you promised a near-complete drawdown from Afghanistan, both before and during the heavy campaign season, and it's a factor as to why you were elected. -"GoGoGoEverton", Daily Kos Nov 26, 2012

Some 10,000 US troops will remain in Afghanistan after NATO combat operations end at the end of 2014, US media reports said Sunday. The plan is in line with recommendations from General John Allen, commander of ISAF forces in Afghanistan. The administration of President Barack Obama aims to keep around 10,000 US troops in Afghanistan after formal combat operations in that country end in 2014, The Wall Street Journal reported late Sunday.
