Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said tonight he expects President Obama’s new Afghanistan strategy will have what it takes to meet the administration’s goals in the country.

Reid met with Obama about the strategy this afternoon, and released a statement afterward praising the process that led to the new war plan.

“It is clear that the President’s deliberative approach to his decision, which allowed him to hear from a wide range of military, civilian and Congressional voices, will strengthen the clarity and focus of our mission,” Reid said in a statement. “Tonight, I expect the President to present a comprehensive strategy that will keep Americans safe at home, deny al Qaeda a safe haven in Afghanistan and honor our troops and their daily sacrifices.”
