WASHINGTON (Reuters), – The Pentagon’s almost 10-month-old review was published Monday. While it did not provide any details about the future global military position, the report said President Joe Biden will make the right decisions working together with the allies to achieve long-term targets.

The purpose of the review is to examine how Trump, then President, made significant decisions that had an impact on military operations and allies. This was done often via Twitter (NYSE:), and without any discussion within Trump’s own government that took officials off guard.

Trump declared that U.S. troops were leaving Syria several times during his term. He also ordered the removal of large numbers from Germany at one time, which Biden later reversed.

A senior U.S. defense officer said that they sought to “re-establish strategy-informed and coherent decision-making processes,” but did not disclose his identity.

Officials stated that there were no major adjustments in U.S. troop distributions around the globe after the review.

Official added that the U.S. needed to improve its military infrastructures in Guam, Australia and elsewhere. However, the official declined details about other possible moves as the majority of the report is classified.

Mara Karlin (a top Pentagon official) said to reporters that “on the Indo-Pacific we’re moving it a bit.”

Karlin stated that the review didn’t examine whether or not the military can fight multiple major conflicts simultaneously or in the cyber and nuclear domains.

Like Trump, the Biden administration has tried to put its efforts into avoiding the Middle East, and instead, focusing them on China.
