Will Republicans Side With Haley Barbour on Afghanistan?

Haley Barbour has broken with most of his likely Republican rivals in the still-evolving presidential primary field, calling for the U.S. to shrink its involvement in Afghanistan.

“I think we need to look at that,” the Mississippi governor told reporters in Iowa when asked if the U.S. should reduce the number of troops there, Politico’s Kasie Hunt reported. “What is our mission? … Is that a 100,000-man Army mission?”

Will Republican primary voters buy what Barbour is selling?
