US Lt. Gen: No Plans for Complete Afghan Withdrawal

Stars and Stripes reports that “the commander of NATO ground forces in Afghanistan says there has been no discussions that the coalition would completely withdraw after 2014, despite continued uncertainty in political negotiations over the future of the international military effort.”

“U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Mark Milley, the No. 2 commander for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force, calls the term ‘withdrawal’ a misnomer.”

“’We have no indication whatsoever of a withdrawal completely from Afghanistan,’ he told Stars and Stripes in a Monday interview at his headquarters in Kabul. ‘We are going to change our mission, and we are going to reduce in size and scope.’”
