WASHINGTON -- Sen. Deb Fischer, R-Neb., blasted reports Tuesday that the Obama administration is moving forward with aggressive U.S. troop withdrawals from Afghanistan and contemplating having fewer than 1,000 troops there in just a few years.
"It seems pretty clear to me that what the White House is saying is they're giving up on Afghanistan and don't care," Fischer told The World-Herald.
