How will the troop drawdown in Afghanistan impact US foreign policy?

President Obama addressed a troop drawdown in Afghanistan yesterday, announcing that he plans to remove 10,000 troops from the country by the end of the year and bring a total of 33,000 troops home by next summer.

Former Special Assistant to President Bush Brett McGurk and CNN Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr join Kiran Chetry this morning to discuss the response to Obama's announcement and how the drawdown will impact US strategy in Afghanistan.
