WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama is nowhere near a decision on how many U.S. troops, if any, to station in Afghanistan after 2014 once the bulk of U.S. forces leave, the White House said on Tuesday.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said it was possible Obama would adopt a "zero option" and not leave any troops behind in Afghanistan. The size of the U.S. presence in Afghanistan after 2014 will be negotiated with the Afghan government, he said.
