‘In a planned televised speech on Wednesday, Obama is expected to elaborate on the details of his plans, which all deal specifically with the 30,000 surge troops dispatched to Afghanistan last year, the Associated Press reported.

The US president is reportedly mulling over a phased withdrawal as his first option that would bring home about 5,000 troops over the summer and another 5,000 by the end of 2011. The remainder would stay in the war-ravaged Asian country until late 2012.
