This is from a book about think tanks.
Does the word 'with' mean the same with 'consisting of'?
Context:
A press release issued by Reagan on 23 October 1980 documented the scope and function of the policy task force: “Governor Reagan today announced the completion of 23 domestic and economic policy task forces with 329 advisors who have been asked to address the important issues that will have to be faced by a new administration .. These task forces join 25 foreign policy and defence working groups with 132 advisers that are examining,in detail,the major questions that relate to these two important areas."

    I think you're right, although it reads very strangely. I am guessing this passage was not written by a native English speaker.
