The US command structure has reached a deal with the Taliban’s real commander, Hamid Karzai for withdrawing US troops from the Wardak Provence to comply with the Afghanistan’s president’s demands a few weeks ago, according to the Associated Press;
The international military coalition said in a Wednesday statement that commander Gen. Joseph Dunford agreed with Karzai to remove troops first from Nerkh district of Wardak province and then later from other districts. The statement says international forces and members of a government-backed militia force will be replaced with Afghan army and police.
The US had disagreed with Karzai’s characterization that special forces soldiers were running amuck in the provence near Kabul, but they’ll capitulate to Karzai. If we’re going to risk our forces and subjegate them to the whims of the Taliban senior commander, Karzai, then we might as well leave tomorrow morning.
