The U.S. ponders delaying a security agreement with Afghanistan

The U.S. is considering waiting to try to secure a security agreement with Afghanistan until presidential elections take place in April. The U.S. has been unable to reach an agreement with current Afghan president Hamid Karzai. The United States says it would like to leave more than 10,000 troops in the country after it formally withdraws forces at the end of this year. We'll discuss how election results could impact such an agreement with Sarah Chayes, a senior associate with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace’s South Asia program.
