WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration has begun its review of whether the administration’s Afghan war strategy is working well enough to start withdrawing U.S. forces in July, an official said Tuesday.

The review is being conducted so the White House can measure whether Obama’s 2009 order to commit 30,000 more troops has resulted in progress in the decade-old conflict.

It will be presented to the president in mid- to late-December, said a senior administration official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal White House deliberations.
