Christmas II.

This is coolbert:

"If everything goes according to plan, some of the boys might be home for Christmas."

As is germane to a previous blog entry and presented in chronological order.

"Esper [SECDEF USA] memo warned conditions weren't met for withdrawal from Afghanistan"

Article from CNN by Jake Tapper, Anchor and Chief Washington Correspondent and thanks to same.

"(CNN) Then-Secretary of Defense Mark Esper sent a classified memo earlier this month to the White House asserting that it was the unanimous recommendation of the chain of command that the US not draw down its troop presence in Afghanistan any further until conditions were met, sources familiar with the memo tell CNN."

And additionally from the tweet by Derick Waller from only yesterday:


"Per @ABC: A US official confirms that they are expecting orders by the end of this week to reduce troop levels to 2,500 in Afghanistan and in Iraq by mid-January."

"There are currently 4,500 U.S. troops in Afghanistan and 3,000 in Iraq."
