WASHINGTON – Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says the U.S. presence in wartorn Afghanistan "is not an open-ended, never-ending commitment."
In an interview from Pakistan broadcast Friday on NBC's "Today" show, Clinton replied "absolutely" when asked whether there is a way out for America in the protracted conflict in South Asia.
In a separate interview on ABC's "Good Morning America," she was asked if the United States is losing the war in Afghanistan. The secretary said, "No, I don't think so." She also said the decision that President Barack Obama will soon make about how to proceed next will not "be just a repeat of the same old approach. ... I think that will be evident."
