Washington (CNN) -- President Obama is scheduled to meet with the Joint Chiefs of Staff on Friday as part of his reassessment of the military strategy in Afghanistan, a White House spokesman said Tuesday.

The meeting -- which is scheduled to take place at the White House -- will give the chiefs of staff, each representing one branch of the military, an opportunity to describe directly to Obama the impact on the military if a large number of additional forces are sent to Afghanistan, two unnamed military sources told CNN's Barbara Starr.

That war game looked at various scenarios, ranging from just a few thousand troops up to the 40,000 troops that U.S. commander Gen. Stanley McChrystal is reportedly seeking, the official said.

Obama has held a series of high-level administration discussions on Afghanistan and Pakistan and how best to confront Taliban and al Qaeda militants threatening the governments of both countries. The sixth of those meetings was held Monday at the White House.

That makes October 2009, with 58 fatalities, the deadliest month for the U.S. military since the Afghanistan war began in October 2001.
