    GAO: Defense Dept. Lowered Standards for Afghan Forces to Justify Withdrawal

    During Tuesday night's State of the Union address, Barack Obama boasted that he and NATO are planning to leave Afghanistan at the end of 2014 and leave the security of the country to the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF).
    There’s one problem: the ANSF isn’t ready.

    Anything significant about "the end of 2014" and perhaps the views of the dozing public?
