(AURN/AP) -- President Barack Obama is ordering the Pentagon to accelerate planning for a full U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan by the end of this year.
The White House has become increasingly frustrated with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, who has refused to sign a security pact, the White House says is crucial to keeping a U.S. troop presence in Afghanistan past the end of this year.
Obama spoke Tuesday with Karzai in their first direct discussions since last June.
