More Troops to Afghanistan?

“Senator…the President of the United States has ceded policy control of Afghanistan to Secretary Mattis. Everyone has great respect for Secretary Mattis, but apparently, there will be an increase in the United States troop level sent to Afghanistan. My question to you is: What do you figure the objective is at this stage of a 16-year-long war? And do you agree with the idea of the President basically sitting on the sidelines as far as Afghan policy goes?” asks Morning Joe senior contributor Mike Barnicle of Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI) during a conversation about the ongoing Afghanistan war. Hear Sen. Reed explain why the President’s decision “shows his failure to understand the complexities of these problems and the need for intervention and constant supervision.” Only on MSNBC.
