Drawdown progressing

U.S. military officials said the number of American troops in Afghanistan could drop to as low as 20,000 by mid-summer, giving commanders the ability to pull them all out by the end of the year if no agreement is reached. It generally takes about 10 months to shut down a massive military base, but officials said the Pentagon is prepared to do it in a much shorter – although far more expensive – timeline.
