Obama under pressure on Afghanistan

White House says no decision on Afghan strategy until late November.

    The US president has returned to Washington amid growing pressure to announce a new US strategy in Afghanistan.

    Barack Obama calls his protracted policymaking process "careful deliberation", but politicians and the media are growing impatient, with some of his harshest critics calling him "indecisive".

    Despite the pressure, the White House says no decision on Afghanistan is expected until at least late November.
