So, President Obama says he wants to reduce the troop size in Afghanistan by 30,000 by the end of next year.
From Fox News: In a prime-time address from the East Room of the White House, the president assured the nation that the U.S. military will begin its drawdown next month from a "position of strength" following the death of Usama bin Laden. He described that drawdown as "the beginning, but not the end, of our effort to wind down this war" -- a transition he wants complete by 2014.
"We have put Al Qaeda on a path to defeat, and we will not relent until the job is done," the president said.
As anticipated, the president called for 10,000 troops to be withdrawn by the end of this year. He said the rest of the surge troops, or about 23,000 will be removed by the end of summer in 2012. It is expected that all surge troops will be out of Afghanistan by September next year.

So, is Obama lying like most times he opens his mouth? Is he campaigning like he did to close down Gitmo? Or is he telling the truth and everything will happen like he says it will.
Sad to say, no one really knows.
