Don't tell anyone, but President Peace Prize just expanded military's role in Afghanistan

Valerie Jarrett on “60 Minutes” last month credited Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama with ending two wars during his term. The interview aired just as news broke that the U.S. had taken out Taliban leader Mansour in Pakistan with a drone strike.


It would really spoil Jarrett’s narrative if she were to learn that President Obama just expanded the role of the U.S. military in Afghanistan (again), so don’t talk about it, OK? There might be boots on the ground there, but U.S. troops are there strictly to train and advise. And maybe fight a little bit.

According to Reuters, General John Nicholson, the U.S. commander in Afghanistan, now will have the authority to decide when it is appropriate for American troops to accompany conventional Afghan forces into the field. Reuters notes this sort of escort had previously been limited to Afghan special operations forces.


“U.S. forces will more proactively support Afghan conventional forces” under the new policy, a senior U.S. defense official explained.
