US Is Preparing Withdrawal of Thousands of Troops From Afghanistan The troop withdrawal would come as part of negotiations between the Trump Administration and the Taliban.

The initial deal to end the 18-year-long war would result in a cease-fire and see the Taliban renounce al-Qaeda.

Currently, there are 14,000 American troops in Afghanistan.

If approved, the deal would cut that number to between 8,000 and 9,000.
