Tories dragging their heels on Afghan withdrawal

Issue No. 2209

The Tory government says it has set a timetable for withdrawal from Afghanistan—but then said it hadn’t.

David Cameron said combat troops should be out by 2015.

Then he said British forces could remain in the region after 2015.

“I’ve said that by 2015 we shouldn’t have our troops there—but we may.”

Cameron added that he thought about Afghanistan a lot.
