Wonder if this report will change the president’s mind about withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan:
A NATO report leaked to British news outlets found that Taliban leaders are confident they will regain power in Afghanistan after the U.S. withdraws, and said the insurgency has not been seriously eroded by the military efforts of America and its allies.
That report illustrates the hazards of negotiating with the Taliban while preparing to pull out of the country, according to military analysts and Afghan officials.
This is the type of story which should attract more news coverage than the verbal gaffe of a Republican politician. Or a reality star’s impending endorsement.
