WASHINGTON (AP) -- Adm. Bill McRaven says special operations forces in Afghanistan are preparing for a possible expanded role as overall U.S. forces begin to draw down after a decade of war.
McRaven, the special operations commander who led last year's Navy SEAL raid against Osama bin Laden, says the administration is considering handing more of the Afghan war responsibility to a senior special operations officer. The plan calls for special operations forces to be the last to leave the country.
But he said no final decisions have been made. Special operations would combine targeting and training operations under the plan for an expanded role.
