Mattis Says Trump Has Made Afghan Decision After ‘Rigorous’ Review

US President Donald Trump has made a decision on the United States’ strategy for Afghanistan after a “sufficiently rigorous” review process, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Sunday. However, Mattis did not provide details on when the White House would make an announcement or what the decision was on Afghanistan, where fighting still rages more than 15 years after US forces invaded and overthrew a Taliban government, Reuters reported. Soon after taking office in January, the Trump administration began a review of US policy on Afghanistan, which has expanded into a broader South Asia review.
“I am very comfortable that the strategic process was sufficiently rigorous and did not go in with a pre-set position,” Mattis told reporters traveling with him aboard a military aircraft to Jordan.
