From the view on the ground in Afghanistan, president Trump is winning the war that the Obama administration seemed determined to lose.
President Trump’s new strategy for the Afghanistan War garnered a glowing review from the country’s leader Thursday, who said the difference on the ground after just four weeks was “night and day” from the war plan of the Obama administration.Meeting with Mr. Trump on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York, Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani called the change in strategy “historic” and credited it with putting his country on a path toward victory over Taliban militants and other radical Islamic terrorists.“You made this decision on the basis of courage and determination. We salute your courage,” he told Mr. Trump. “The cloud of uncertainty has been lifted, but equally important is your commitment to a political solution at the end of this process.”
Seems like winning to me, that's all.
