Asked if he is satisfied with Trump’s decision, Mattis said, “I’m very comfortable that the strategic process was sufficiently rigorous and did not go in with a preset condition in terms of what questions could be asked or what decisions would be made.” On August 14, Mattis indicated that the Trump administration was considering various options for Afghanistan, including increasing the American military footprint by thousands of forces, the complete withdrawal of troops, and using private contractors.
