Senator Carl Levin said on Thursday the new Afghanistan strategy being unveiled by the Obama administration on Friday will include about 4,000 Americans to train the Afghan military.
"There is a significant additional training group that will be going I think in June," Levin told reporters outside the Senate after lawmakers were briefed on the review.
Asked if the number of American trainers was 4,000, Levin said: "I won't disagree with that."
