Afghan Plan to Include Exit Strategy

A little something for everyone...to attack? According to The Washington Post, not only will President Obama’s primetime address on Afghanistan next week announce a plan for escalating the war—25,000 to 30,000 troops, says The New York Times—but it also “outlines plans for ending it.” In order to placate war skeptics, Obama will lay out a “modest endgame” and set a general timeframe for exit, says the Post. The remarks will last 40 minutes.
