The Pentagon is reportedly planning to deploy nearly 4,000 more U.S. soldiers to Afghanistan. This comes after President Trump gave the Pentagon authority last week to set troop levels there. There are currently 8,400 U.S. troops deployed to Afghanistan. The U.S. war in Afghanistan is the longest war in U.S. history.
