Plans are "for a small troop presence in the country after the American mission formally ends there in 2014."

"(T)ransition is well underway," said Obama. Plans are for Afghan forces to replace Americans. By yearend 2014, they'll "have full responsibility for their security, and this war will come to a responsible end."

At the same time, US forces will "continue to fight alongside (Afghans) when necessary." Obama didn't say what troop strength will remain. 

Drone wars continue daily. US Special Forces and CIA elements came to stay. Search and destroy missions are prioritized.

By spring 2013, "our troops will have a different mission - training, advising, assisting Afghan forces. It will be a historic moment and another step toward full Afghan sovereignty."
