Huntsman Questions Obama's Afghanistan Policy

Sunday, 12 Jun 2011 03:56 PM

 

WASHINGTON (AP) — Potential presidential candidate Jon Huntsman is suggesting a faster timetable for pulling U.S. troops from Afghanistan than the one laid out by President Barack Obama.

Obama plans to bring home next month the first batch of about 100,000 American servicemen currently in Afghanistan, with all combat troops leaving by 2014.

Huntsman, a former Utah governor who was Obama's ambassador to China, thinks that may not be fast enough because of the financial cost of the war and because of waning public support.

Huntsman tells CNN's "State of the Union" that it's his "hunch" that Americans want to be "out of there are quickly as we can get it done."
