Obama Has Not Decided Post-2014 Afghanistan Troop Levels: Pentagon


WASHINGTON, July 9 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama has not yet decided how many troops to keep in Afghanistan after 2014, but a total pullout is one of the options under consideration, the Pentagon said on Tuesday.

Pentagon spokesman George Little, in a news briefing, declined comment on whether Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel supported keeping U.S. forces in Afghanistan after 2014, saying he would not disclose Hagel's private recommendations to Obama. (Reporting by Phil Stewart; Editing by David Brunnstrom)
