Obama Plans to Leave 10 Thousand Troops in Afghanistan


United States President Barack Obama plans to leave 9,800 American soldiers in Afghanistan after the earmarked date for American retreat, scheduled for the end of next year, a senior member of the American government claims.

The senior official maintains that all of the American soldiers are expected to retreat from Afghani soil by the end of 2016, prior to the end of Obama’s candidacy. The official claims that Obama will announce his plans at a White House press conference.
