Excerpt: 

Winnefeld said he would not advocate a full withdrawal from the region, and he said the president was clear in his speech that "our ends, ways, means, balance of strategy remain intact there" and that Mr. Trump recognized it's "very clear those threats still exist" in the region.

“There really is no crisply defined end state which we as Americans love to have,” said Winnefeld, saying Americans would like to hope for a sustainable Afghan government free from the threat of terrorists.
