Obama to announce Afghanistan troop plans shortly

"Very shortly, not too long from now, the president does intend to make public what his plans are for post-2014," Kerry told reporters.  Obama has set next year as the target for withrawing most troops but the decision is a delicate one as sufficent forces must stay behind to train and support Afghan forces and carry out some operations. "Very shortly, not too long from now, the president does intend to make public what his plans are for post-2014," Kerry told reporters. Kerry declined to discuss how many troops might remain but said: "He (Obama) is committed to supporting the Afghan military beyond 2014."
 
U.S. lawmakers have been pressing military commanders and the Obama administration to release recommendations for the size of a force to remain in Afghanistan.
 
Kerry said Afghanistan was beginning its first "fighting season" with its own forces holding most responsibility for military operations and they were doing well.
 
General James Mattis, who leads the U.S. military's Central Command, said in March he has recommended keeping 13,600 U.S. troops in Afghanistan after 2013.
