Reid, Obama discuss Afghanistan

Reid said President Barack Obama discussed the Afghanistan war in an earlier phone call, a conversation Reid called “typical Obama ... very thorough.”

Congress has been anticipating the president’s proposal for increasing troops in Afghanistan as the military’s focus shifts to the ongoing violence there.
