The Pentagon is expected to send nearly 4,000 additional troops to Afghanistan to help train Afghan forces, according to a U.S. official, who said there's no word yet on when Secretary of Defense James Mattis will make that announcement.

This week Mattis told Congress the U.S. is "not winning" the war, and promised a new strategy by mid-July. Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti talks about the possible troop deployment with military analyst Andrew Bacevich.

This segment aired on June 16, 2017.
