President Barack Obama says he will seek to bring the U.S. force in Afghanistan down to 9,800 as the American combat mission ends later this year. He then intends to withdraw most those forces by the end of 2016.
Sam Gold used his pre-paid WePay debit card to withdraw $200 from his local Wells Fargo ATM. Gold expected to see a $3 processing fee on his receipt because he wasn’t a Wells Fargo customer. However, when he received his bank statement, a second transaction of $203 was tacked on.
The 100,000 U.S. troops now stationed in Afghanistan should be trimmed to 10,000 to 25,000 within the next 18 months, Sen. Barbara Boxer said Friday.
