Afghanistan drawdown announced

President Barack Obama has announced that 9800 troops will be left behind next year when all combat troops pull out of Afghanistan. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said in a statement, "I strongly support the president's decision to maintain a limited U.S. troop presence in Afghanistan after our combat mission ends there later this year." Hagel said the move will do two things: "it will help ensure that al-Qaida cannot reconstitute itself in Afghanistan, and it will help us sustain the significant progress we have made in training and equipping the Afghan national security forces."

US to block Iran's UN ambassador

President Barack Obama signed legislation Friday to block Iran's chosen ambassador from coming into the country to work at the United Nations because of his ties to the 1979 takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. But according to the Associate Press, the President says he's only treating the legislation as guidance. It bars anyone from entering the U.S. as a U.N. representative if they've engaged in espionage or terrorist activity and still pose a threat to U.S. security.
