NATO head: No Afghan deal means no troops past '14
NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen speaks during media conference, prior to a meeting of defense ministers of the North Atlantic Council, at NATO headquarters in Brussels on Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2014. Frustrated with his Afghan counterpart, U.S. President Barack Obama is ordering the Pentagon to accelerate planning for a full U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan by the end of this year. But Obama is also holding out hope that Afghanistan's next president may eventually sign a stalled security agreement that could prevent the U.S. from having to take that step.
