Defense Secretary James Mattis said today that he’s crafting a strategy to “end this war” in Afghanistan — one that aims to “remove the danger to the Afghan people and to us and to all the nations that have been attacked by terrorist groups out of that region” — but he can’t say yet how that will affect U.S. troop levels in the country.

Mattis was headed first to Germany before attending a NATO defense ministers’ meeting Thursday in Brussels.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joe Dunford headed to Afghanistan on Monday to review current U.S. operations there.
