On Thursday, Mr. Mattis said the administration's plan for Afghanistan will likely take a wider view of the ongoing conflict, focusing on the regional implications of any U.S. escalation in the country.
"We're going to have to look at a more regional strategy, one that takes into account Afghanistan as part of South Asia, not looks at it in isolation," Mr. Mattis said. "It's going to have to be one that marries itself to reality and the current level of support"
