Source: The Hill

“President Trump’s top military and foreign policy advisers reportedly proposed a new military strategy in Afghanistan which would put deploy U.S. troops to fight against the Taliban, according to a Monday Washington Post report. Such a decision would mark a major shift in government’s approach, if approved. The goal for an expanded military presence would be to fight back against the Taliban to the point that they will negotiate, U.S. officials tell the Post. Trump has yet to approve the plan, but his top Cabinet officials reportedly support it.” (05/08/17)
