US Military Chief: More Troops Probably Needed for Afghanistan


The top U.S. military officer says the United States will "probably" need more troops in Afghanistan to win the battle against insurgents.

Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a Senate committee Tuesday that a "properly-resourced counterinsurgency probably means more forces."

He said success in Afghanistan will also require more time and commitment to the development of good governance and more trainers to help rebuild the Afghan army and police.

Mullen said the U.S. mission in Afghanistan has been "badly under-resourced" for about five years and that it is "very clear" that more resources are needed to execute President Barack Obama's new strategy for Afghanistan.
