Bergen, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/26/2014 -- The Obama administration announced today that planning has started for the possible withdrawal of all U.S. troops by the end of 2014 if no security agreement can be reached. For U.S. citizens like New Jersey’s Anthony Amado this was welcomed news, if it happens.
There are still more than 33,000 U.S. troops on the ground in Afghanistan. There has been consistent U.S. military presence in the area since the attacks of 2011. The impact on having the troops finally home on American soil would be very exciting for people who have had family and friends serving, like Anthony Amado.
There is a security agreement that has been negotiated between Afghanistan and the U.S. that would cover a continuing mission after 2014, which would be focused on training Afgan forces and counterterrorism. This agreement hasn’t been signed yet however.
