President Obama to Meet Top U.S. Commander of Afghanistan Troops

The top U.S. Commander in Afghanistan is headed to Washington for an expected meeting with President Obama in the coming days.

That's according to a U.S. Military Official, who said they plan to discuss future troop levels in Afghanistan.

General Joseph Dunford is proposing 10,000 U.S. Troops and 2 to 3,000 Nato Forces remain on duty after combat operations end. Those operations end at the close of this year.

The numbers could shift, but the basic idea is for the W.S. to make up 2/3 of any remaining force. That's according to the official, who declined to be identified due to the sensitive nature of the information.

There are currently 36,500 U.S. Troops and 19,000 Allied Forces in Afghanistan.
