President Trump addressed the nation Monday night about U.S. engagement and "the path forward" in Afghanistan. Senior U.S. officials tell NPR that the president is expected to order about 4,000 additional troops to Afghanistan. The decision follows months of deliberation within the Trump Administration, involving top military commanders, political advisers and even enlisted veterans of the nearly 16-year war. NPR journalists offer context and analysis about the President's remarks.
