WASHINGTON (CNN) – President Obama is under increasing pressure to decide whether the United States will commit more troops and resources to the conflict in Afghanistan.
On Tuesday, the head of NATO met with the president and endorsed Obama's plan to fine-tune the strategy for Afghanistan before deciding on whether to deploy more troops.
"I agree with President Obama in his approach: strategy first, then resources," Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said after meeting with Obama at the White House.
The meeting comes a day before Obama is scheduled to discuss Afghanistan strategy with his national security team.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs backed up Rasmussen's assessment.
