Clinton Says She Would Commit More U.S. Troops to Afghanistan By Kristin Jensen March 6 (Bloomberg) -- Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said she would commit more U.S. troops to the war in Afghanistan and urge other countries to do so as well. Clinton, 60, a New York senator, used a news conference in Washington today to release a plan for Afghanistan. Surrounded by current and retired military officers who are supporting her, Clinton said President George W. Bush hasn't done enough. ``Those front lines are still largely forgotten,'' Clinton said. She said she would also redouble efforts to quash the drug trade in Afghanistan and help the country rebuild by encouraging international investments in education, infrastructure and other needs.
