Feedback at 5:00- U.S. Troops in Afghanistan

Posted: Updated:

American troops are on a time table to leave Afghanistan by December of 2014. 

But now, there is a possibility to pull out all troops next year.

The White House says they are considering what's called "zero option" which could bring home every U.S. soldier.

The goal is not necessarily to keep American troops in Afghanistan, but to fight terrorists.

The U.S. now has 66,000 troops in Afghanistan, down from a peak of about 100,000 in 2010.

For tonight's "Feedback at 5:00," we asked what you thought of this option of pulling all troops out.
