Obama returns to Afghan policy he never should have changed
Official: U.S. to start strikes on Taliban, advise regular Afghan soldiers againObama's premature retreat from Afghanistan gave the enemy an opportunity and they have taken advantage of it against an Afghan army that need more support. The new commander will provide them more American support. Obama's policy was losing the war. The question now is whether the new policy is just a stop gap to get him to the end of his term or is a serious attempt to defeat the enemy.
After recommendations from the new top U.S. general in Afghanistan, American forces will soon be able to conduct airstrikes on the Taliban and once more accompany conventional Afghan troops on missions, according to a Pentagon official.
