Military ordered to withdraw about half the troops in Afghanistan

The military has been ordered to begin planning to withdraw about half the troops in Afghanistan, a US defense official with direct knowledge said.
The official said it could take months to do a withdrawal of the approximately 7,000 troops.
The decision was made Tuesday, at the same time as the decision on Syria.
The Wall Street Journal was first to report the plan.
