U.S., NATO still trying to map out Afghanistan strategy

U.S., NATO still trying to map out Afghanistan strategy - The Washington Post:

The immediate surge was a short-term solution, requested by battlefield commanders, but the Pentagon is still assessing how U.S. troops will be deployed in the country in 2018, according to a U.S. official in Afghanistan.
