Obama To Make Afghan Troop Speech

Item: US troops coming home? Obama to say on Wednesday/Associated Press

More Info: President Barack Obama will announce the critical next steps in America's decade-long war in Afghanistan on Wednesday, outlining both a plan to start bringing thousands of U.S. troops home next month and a broader withdrawal blueprint aimed at giving Afghans control of their own security in 2014. But even as Obama finalizes those plans, there are divisions in his administration, with military leaders favoring only a gradual reduction in troops but other advisers advocating a significant decrease in the coming months.

Question: If you were a presidential adviser, what would you recommend President Obama should do re: American troops in Afghanistan?
