Posted December 1, 2009on:
President Obama said on Tuesday that the deployment of 30,000 additional U.S. troops to Afghanistan is part of his strategy to reverse the Taliban’s and stabilize the country’s government. Obama said he is going to begin sending additional troops starting in early 2010 and will try to end it in 2011.
President Obama’s strategy is to deny Al Qaeda a safe haven, to reverse the Taliban’s momentum and deny its ability to overthrow the government of Afghanistan and to strengthen the security and government of Afghanistan.
