Obama Says U.S. Troops Have Turned a Corner in Afghanistan
President Obama spoke to troops at Fort Drum on Thursday, and said that those who've fought in Afghanistan have turned a corner in the country and the U.S. can begin to bring troops home.
The president said that the 33,000 U.S. force withdrawal he announced Wednesday night will be in a steady way to ensure the gains that they helped bring about would be sustained. He then added that the job isn't completed and "There's still some fighting to be done."
Fort Drum is in upstate New York and home to the 10th Mountain Division, one of the most frequently deployed light infantry unit.
