President Barack Obama says his administration faces tough decisions on Iraq and Afghanistan. But the new commander in chief is offering no new details about his decisions on the wars in both countries.

The president spoke briefly with reporters Wednesday after his first Pentagon session with military advisers.

Obama said the military has carried out its missions under enormous pressure, and he pledged his support to the troops.

The president campaigned on a promise to end the war in Iraq responsibly and withdraw combat troops within 16 months.

Earlier, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said the president was likely to wrap up his review on Iraq war strategy relatively soon.
