WASHINGTON, Dec 12 (BestGrowthStock) – U.S. President Barack Obama
will make a statement on Thursday on the review of the U.S. war
strategy in Afghanistan, a senior administration official said
on Sunday.

Obama ordered the review, which is due to be completed by
mid-December, after dispatching 30,000 more troops to break the
momentum of the Taliban. U.S. officials have cautioned that the
review will not lead to any major changes in strategy.
