New Pentagon chief racing to make changes before Trump’s exit | Politico

Despite Chris Miller being appointed as the Acting Defense Secretary less than two weeks ago, he has already begun to announce new plans and changes. On Tuesday, he stated that the U.S. will drop down to 2,500 troops in both Afghanistan and Iraq by January 15th. While some member of Congress oppose the withdrawal, it is unlikely that Biden would reverse the decision. Miller has also made it clear that he plans to elevate the needs of the special operations community, and recently announced that the top civilian Pentagon official overseeing special operations will now report directly to him.
