We investigate President Obama’s announcement for his Afghanistan withdrawal plan. We first look into a brief history of the United States’ involvement in Afghanistan. Then we speak to experts and politicians -- including Afghanistan’s Ambassador to the United States, Afghanistan’s Former Interior Minister, and policy analysts from Washington D.C. and Kabul -- about the implications for the President’s decision. Finally, we analyze the media’s varying responses to the president’s decision. But first, a roundup of this week’s news.
