U.S. Troops To Find Out How Many Will Leave Afghanistan

President Obama will announce his decision on how many American troops to withdraw from Afghanistan Wednesday night. In late 2009, the president had approved a "surge" force of 30,00 troops. At the time, he promised to begin bringing them home in July 2011. With that deadline approaching, a debate has emerged inside the White House about how many troops to pull out.
