US Withdrawal Plan from Afghanistan Won't Include SOF Strike Units

The Pentagon is planning to cut its force size in Afghanistan by half, but special operations strike units will remain in country to carry out raids on Taliban and Islamic State fighters, a Defense Department official with knowledge of the withdrawal plans said Wednesday.

Press reports of a decision by President Donald Trump to begin removing U.S. forces from Afghanistan began emerging in late December, shortly after the White House declared victory over ISIS fighters in Syria and ordered that American troops be pulled from that war-torn country.
