Michelle Flournoy and Admiral Mike Mullen testified about President Obama’s Afghanistan troop reduction plan. Admiral Mullen said he supported the president’s plan to reduce U.S. troops in Afghanistan, but that the “president’s decisions are more aggressive and incur more risk than I was originally prepared to accept.” He later added “if the strategy if it’s not working in a year or two, it needs to be reassessed” and that “we’re now paying the price for walking away in 1989” from Pakistan and Afghanistan. The president’s plan called for 10,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan to return home by the end of the year and a total of 33,000 troops by the end of the next summer. close
