President Obama wanted out of Afghanistan last year.
And although the president agreed to triple troop levels in the embattled country, some in Obama’s national security team doubt that his strategy in Afghanistan will even be successful, according to a new book by journalist Bob Woodward.
The book, “Obama’s Wars,” details how the Obama Administration was — and is — extremely divided over strategy in Afghanistan.
According to the book, the president said “I have two years with the public on this” and asked his advisers how to avoid a big escalation in the nine-year, U.S.-led Afghanistan war, The Associated Press reported.
Obama also told advisers “I want an exit strategy” and privately told Vice President Joe Biden to push his plan against the sending of additional troops.
