The U.S. military is addressing problems brought to light after the Niger attack last year that killed four American service members, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told Congress Thursday.

‘We have found what we believe to be the crux of the problems — not problem but problems — that contributed to this,” Mattis told the Senate Armed Services Committee. “It was not a delegation of authority problem.”

As a result, he said, “we know immediately how to address” those problems.

Mattis also told the committee that the Trump administration will continue providing troops to African nations and there may be temporary increases in forces. He said he expects no significant, permanent increase.
