    Obama secretly extends US combat operation in Afghanistan

    November 24, 2014

    President Barack Obama has secretly signed an order that expands the United States’ direct combat role in Afghanistan throughout 2015.

    Signed over the last few weeks, the secret order permits American forces to continue to battle the Taliban and other militants that pose a threat to either the Afghan government or US personnel. US jets, bombers, and drones will be able to aid ground troops be they Afghan or US forces in whatever mission they undertake. If true, this marks a significant expansion of America’s role in Afghanistan in 2015.


    Previously, President Obama said US forces would not be involved in combat operations once the new year begins. He did say troops would continue training Afghan forces and track down remaining Al-Qaeda members.
