The 10-day regional tour of Asia for National Security Adviser HR McMaster also includes Afghanistan, India and Pakistan. The use of the 22,000 pounds non-nuclear bomb by US in Afghanistan shows that the war is about to be intensified, both militarily and politically, hence, the United States wants to keep all the countries in the same page regarding the matter.
McMaster is taked with the mission to assess whether the current stalemate in the Afghan war, which is working to the advantage of the Taliban, can be broken, and if so, what needs to be done.
As of now, around 8,400 US troops have been deployed in Afghanistan.
Only hours after Trump dismissed that his campaign team was being scrutinized by the FBI for possible ties with Russia, FBI Director James Comey confirmed that the investigation is real. (Oh, well) The FBI Director also insisted that there was no evidence that Mr. Obama had ordered a wiretap for Trump tower.
Not only this, Michael Rogers, head of the NSA, that there has been no evidence that Britain had helped President Obama with the surveillance.
This might come as a huge blow to Trump, who is bound to lose credibility and standing as a reliable ally for his fellow Republicans, ofcourse the most ardent fans of Trump won’t be buzzed with such fake news.
