ABSTRACT
The article reports on the end of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's (NATO) 13-year combat mission in Afghanistan at the end of 2014 after U.S. troops were pulled out in the country as part of U.S. President Barack Obama's exit plan. The plan includes the retention of some troops as part of the non-combat operation "Resolute Support." Obama also authorized the continuation of operations against the Taliban and other terrorist groups in the country to deal with security threats if needed.
