Huntsman calls Obama Afghanistan drawdown plan ‘a little slow’
Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that President Barack Obama’s plan to withdraw 10,000 troops from Afghanistan is “a little slow and a little cautious.”
“I think over the next year there’s room to draw down more… More than 10,000 over the next year,” he explained. “I think we have to see — nine years and 50 days into this conflict, the money that has been spent on both conflicts, well over $1 trillion, I think we have to say, ‘What have we accomplished in Afghanistan?’”
