      @stockholmer is having posting difficulties and asked me to post this NBC article:

      The White House has ordered the Pentagon to draw up plans for a troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, two defense officials and a person briefed on the matter told NBC News.

      The plans are due shortly after the new year, according to the officials. They cautioned that no decision has been made, but President Donald Trump wants to see options.

      The White House has asked the Pentagon to look into multiple options, including a complete withdrawal, the officials said.

      An Afghan official told NBC News that Trump is considering a substantial drawdown of U.S. troops in the country.
