Barring special circumstances of cross-channel subtraction (ala destructive interference by changing polarities), or using a formant-freq. based specialty plugin ($$), or getting very convoluted with multiple side channels working with filtered companding, the simple answer is: you CAN'T.
If you go to Effects -> Stereo Imagery -> Centre Channel Extractor -> drop down menu -> Vocal Remover. Might work as long as the track is stereo and there is little cross feed you should be able to get rid of >90% and with a bit of fiddling get what you are after..... lots of varaibles along the way...

There's a special simple one-click plugin that not many people know about. It's an industry secret. It will remove vocals perfectly, like they're not even there. It's called... Oh wait. Nevermind. It's a secret.
Seriously, this task requires frequency carving. You'll likely carve up the remaining audio as well. Such things are only meant for forensic work, not enjoyable audio. Removing vocals is usually guaranteed to screw up the non-vocal audio as well. The remaining audio will almost never sound natural.
Adobe Audition is laughably pathetic audio software. Even Sound Forge, far more powerful, will have difficulty at this exact task.
Depends a lot on source material. I have a few vinyl discs left in my collection from the '60's and '70's that I have removed vocals almost perfectly destined to become family karaoke tracks. It's also been done on a few documentaries where (copyright clearance obtained) the vocalist fades out leaving the orchestra playing on and a new V/O An example is the Warner's vinyl release Harper's Bizarre where the centre material can be totally removed leaving just the accompaniment
