Korea Commentary: U.S. Should Pull Troops Out

Over the next two days, we will have two opposing views on the role of U.S. troops on the Korean peninsula. Today, Ken Adelman of the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board argues that the United States should pull troops out -- perhaps half, perhaps all of them.

Tomorrow, an argument for keeping U.S. troops in place as a stabilizing force.
