Americans weary of the war in Afghanistan should understand that any U.S. presence there after this year “will not be one where we will be putting our men and women directly into harm’s way,” the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Wednesday. Gen. Martin Dempsey told NBC News that Afghanistan “will remain a dangerous place for some time to come,” but he said the American mission there after 2014 will be more about training and helping the Afghan military at high levels, not patrol or combat.
