A defense official says President Biden has authorized an additional 1,000 U.S. troops for deployment to Afghanistan

Davenport, IA – According to the officials, that raises to roughly 5,000 the number of U.S. troops to ensure what Biden calls an orderly and safe drawdown of American and allied personnel.

Officials have reported that the U.S. troops will also help evacuate Afghans who worked with the military during the nearly two-decade war.

The Pentagon has already reported that 3,000 troops are being sent to Kabul to join the nearly 1,000 already there.

As we all know by now, the situation in Afghanistan has worsened in recent days with the Afghan government losing control of many parts of the country.
