This just in from Washington.
President Barack Obama met today with Afghani President Hamid Karzai and announced an agreement on US military involvement in Afghanistan. Their role will shift to support later this spring. Any troop drawdowns (is that a word??) must include an immunity agreement wherein US troops are not subject to Afghani law. Obama says the path of the U.S. military remains clear and the war is moving toward a "responsible end" in 2014.
The two leaders met at the White House on the future of the U.S. role in Afghanistan and the 66,000 American troops serving there.
