Obama's foreign policy: success or failure?

With combat operations in Afghanistan ending this year, President Barack Obama announced Tuesday his plan for almost 10,000 American troops to remain in the country in 2015 if the Afghan government signs a security agreement.

"We will bring America's longest war to a responsible end," Obama said in an appearance in the White House Rose Garden.

The announcement offered something to proponents and opponents of a continued U.S. military engagement in Afghanistan after more than a decade of war - the longest in American history. Full story

At 6:30pm ET, Peter Beinart, who is a contributing editor for Atlantic Media, and Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol join S.E. Cupp and Van Jones for a debate.
