President Barack Obama signaled the gradual close of the U.S. combat mission in Afghanistan on Tuesday. As few as 5,000 troops, he said, will remain in Afghanistan by the end of 2015. 'One year later, by the end of 2016, our military will draw down to a normal embassy presence in Kabul with a security assistance component just as we have done in Iraq.'
