Commander in Tweet: Trump Says U.S. Troops Home by Christmas, Taliban Rejoices

President Trump tweets he’ll bring the remaining U.S. troops home from Afghanistan by Christmas. Hours earlier, his National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien, said U.S. forces would draw down to 2,500 sometime early next year.

The Taliban rejoices at Trump seems poised to fulfill the terms of a peace agreement even though the Taliban has not lived up to its end of the deal. How should U.S. Central Command respond to mixed messages from the administration of the Commander in Tweet?
