Under an agreement between the afghan government and NATO. The bulk of U.S. and NATO combat forces are supposed to be out of Afghanistan by the end of 2014. But now the head of the U.S. central command announced today, that it wants 13-thousand-600 U.S. troops to stay past the deadline. No word on how many U.S. service members will stay behind to train afghan troops.
