#Khalilzad veut donner des leçons de démocratie au #Pakistan, lui qui porte la responsabilité de l'accord catastrophique de #Doha et du retour des talibans. Bizarrement, on ne l'entend pas sur le nom respect de l'amnistie par les talibans en #Afghanistan
Il a publié une série de tweet pour soutenir Imran Khan qu'il admire, lui qui a méprisé durant les accords de Doha le démocrate Ashraf Ghani, en se plaçant au dessus de lui et du peuple afghan ImageImageImage
Qu'on ne s'y trompe pas. Ashraf Ghani n'était peut-être pas un chef de guerre, mais c'était un anthropologue diplômé de l'université de Columbia à New York, marié à une libanaise, chrétienne, polyglotte qui avait effectué une partie de ses études en France. ImageImage

⚽️ Avec @PierreGodon, nous sommes arrivés à Doha pour #WorldCup2022. On va chacun faire un thread pour vous partager nos instantanés de ce qui nous surprend, nous étonne ou nous amuse. Ah, et on a évidemment trouvé un nom : ça s'appellera #QatarPostale
Vous venez ? Image
Coucou les "coussinophiles" (bref, les collectionneurs de coussins) : voici une pièce rare. C'était dimanche matin, dans l'avion pour Doha. #QatarPostale Image

Today, the @JoeBiden admin released its National Security Strategy. I’ll summarize its major points & put some thoughts on #terrorism & #Afghanistan specifically in this THREAD. 1/n
@JoeBiden (You can find the full text of the document here:…) 2/n
@JoeBiden The strategy exists in 5 parts: (1) overview of the problem; (2) sources of US strength (solutions); (3) global priorities; (4) strategy by region; (5) conclusion.

Oddly, part 1 starts on page 6. Nitpicky, I know, but still weird--who counts the cover as page 1? 3/n

#TCHAD - Qui sont les absents du Dialogue National Inclusif & Souverain? #DNIS

Suite à l'accord de paix signé le 8 août à #Doha entre le Conseil Militaire de Transition (CMT) et ≈ 40 groupes politico-militaires, le DNIS a débuté avec beaucoup de chaises vides.

Pourquoi ? 🧵👇
Le #DNIS a commencé le 20 août à N'Djamena.

Environ 1400 délégués ont pour mission la reconstitution du paysage politique tchadien.

⚠️ Fait important, le DNIS est souverain et ses résolutions sont exécutoires.…
Dès l’ouverture du #DNIS, les travaux ont été suspendus afin de convaincre les absents de rejoindre les débats, sous l’impulsion de @parfait_onanga, @AUC_MoussaFaki et @Macky_Sall.

Mais qui sont les absents ?…

Wow -- #Zawahiri killed in a U.S. drone strike in the #Kabul area over the weekend -- the 1st strike since the #Taliban's takeover of #Afghanistan in August 2021.

BIG blow for #AlQaeda's central leadership, but huge questions about how he was located (or who sold him out).
In Nov 2020, I wrote about #AlQaeda's looming "succession crisis" -- as the group's most likely No.2 (Sayf al-Adel) is based in #Iran, a location that for most AQ affiliates, has resulted in deep distrust.…

AQ's decentralization will only increase now.
For years, #AlQaeda has been under a self-reinforcing process of decentralization (& localization) -- whereby the central leadership remained a key guide, but an increasingly irrelevant source of strategic command.

More on that, in this lengthy piece:…

NEW: @DoD_IG report on US-#Afghanistan raises questions about Washington's "over-the-horizon" #counterterrorism strategy

Need for US planes/drones to fly long distances, loss of human intelligence "has significantly reduced the DoD’s
capacity to track terrorist targets"
"As of the end of the quarter [March 31], the DoD had not conducted any strikes on terrorist targets in #Afghanistan since its withdrawal last year" per @DoD_IG acting IG Sean O'Donnell

re: #ISIS #alQaida
#ISIS-#Khorasan estimated to have 2,000 members operating in #Afghanistan, per @DoD_IG citing @DefenseIntel

That's about half of estimates shared by the @UN in February

🇦🇫 ⚡🌐 The #Taliban have not yet met the conditions for recognition of their #government, the #US Special Representative for #Afghanistan Tom West said in an interview with the #Afghan 1TV channel. Image
He stressed that the #UnitedStates is not ready to resume the work of the embassy in #Afghanistan, but will continue to interact with the #Taliban in order to protect #American interests.
At the same time, he noted that the #Taliban are serious about fulfilling the terms of the #Doha agreement regarding the prevention of the use of the #territory of #Afghanistan against the #UnitedStates and its #allies.

Existential thread re how much do you love your kids & if you really, really want them over for Xmas holidays?

All thanks to @DGCAIndia @MoCA_GoI & @JM_Scindia @PMOIndia allowing v few flights, so fares > ₹1.5 lac, any sector, #London to #India
In @ShashiTharoor's cattle class
Thought I'd begin with our national carrier @airindiain after a great experience last time

Chose #AMD @ahmairport, one of our few international airports with A

Fare is £1983 (is it a promotion with the movie 83?)
Hey, it's #Gujarat, all business folks, ex Modi town. My bad!
Then went for the pukka #British @British_Airways

Picked #Hyderabad simply because it isn't #Bangalore, trying smaller airports, maybe better given the Covid restrictions

The fare is a whopping £2231. Ok, back to the drawing board !

Dear @SecDef #Austin, the Afghan Government "collapsed" because the US Administration cut a deal with the Taliban, not because of Taliban attacks which they countered for 19 years.

The Taliban made advances because they had a deal with the Adm that they will be the next power.
Dear General #Milley, the best way not to "Americanize" any war is not to cut deals with the enemy, the Taliban in the case of Afghanistan.

As simple as that.
Can Congress ask the secretary of defense, the joint chiefs, and @CENTCOM commander, what is the plan they established with the #Taliban in #Doha, to transfer #Afghanistan to them?

Was there a joint plan? If yes, what was it. If not, how would a transition take place?

Given recent events in #Afghanistan & my focus on that country since 2008, I’ve been engaging in a lot of professional reflection of late. I'm going to share some results of that in this (long) THREAD. 1/n
To do this, I went back and re-read everything I’ve written publicly on #Afghanistan over the past two years, as well as a few pertinent older pieces. I’ll post links to these articles as I go. 2/n
I’ll start w/this article I wrote in @WarOnTheRocks in 2016. In it, I described how the #Taliban were steadily encroaching on key rural areas of #Afghanistan & how the #ANDSF were struggling to stop them. 3/n…

Nuovo thread con l’aggiornamento della situazione in #Afghanistan oggi 17 agosto. Vi anticipo che mi attendo che gli aggiornamenti saranno meno rispetto ai giorni scorsi.
Si inizia subito con questo: una prima assoluta nella storia dellmAfghanistan. Il portavoce dei #Talebani che risponde alle domande di una giornalista donna di @TOLOnews.
I #Talebani hanno dichiarato l’amnistia generale per tutti i funzionari statali. (Furbi: senza di loro non possono governare, la burocrazia serve sempre).

Anyone who s celebrating what's happening in #Afghanistan is bereft of a sense of history and perspective. This region needs to breathe and till the time Afghanistan remains in turmoil, the region will never be free to proposer or progress. 1/n
One of the worst mistakes we all made was concentrate more on what others were doing wrong and less on what we could do right. That time is over.
Now the only hope is the talks between what is left of the Afghan govt and the Taliban apparently happening tomorrow in #Doha - 2/n
had this process happened in earnest many months and years before we would ve probably never reached today's scenario. 3/n

#Afghanistan 🇦🇫: thread sulla situazione a #Kabul sulla base delle fonti attendibili sul campo.
Si sono sentiti colpi di arma da fuoco nelle strade della capitale afghana #Kabul questa mattina.
Il Ministero degli Interni afghano ha subito dopo confermato che i #Talebani stanno penetrando nella capitale da più parti.

The fall of #Kabul is the fall of US foreign policy under the #Biden Administration.
The Administration that claims it defends women, youth, minorities & liberals and fights fascism and fundamentalism is the one that threw women, youth, minorities & liberals in poor #Afghanistan to the #Jihadi fascists.

Thinking of the scared and fleeing women of #Afghanistan.

Unlike men, they cannot hide from the #Taliban, they cannot camouflage.

They are trapped under the #Jihadists.

NEW: @POTUS on #Afghanistan as #Taliban have taken 21 of 34 provincial capitals in just over a week

"One more year, or five more years, of US military presence would not have made a difference if the Afghan military cannot or will not hold its own country" ImageImage
NEW-#Afghanistan: @POTUS says he has directed @StateDept @SecBlinken "to support President Ghani [@ashrafghani ] & other #Afghan leaders as they seek to prevent further bloodshed & pursue a political settlement"

"Secretary Blinken will also engage with key regional stakeholders"
NEW: US has "conveyed to the #Taliban representatives in #Doha, via our Combatant Commander, that any action on their part on the ground in #Afghanistan, that puts US personnel or our mission at risk there, will be met w/a swift & strong US military response" per @POTUS

Yes #Trump Adm envoys negotiated the #TalibanDeal in #Doha, fooled their own Adm, applied #Obama era pro Ikhwan agenda. But it's the #Biden Adm that has & IS implementing the surrender of #Afghanistan to the Jihadi #Taliban. The incumbent bear the responsibility of the disaster. Image
US and Western officials are "warning" that "a civil war could start in Afghanistan!"

No kidding! And what is that whole #Taliban invasion if not a Jihadi civil war on the people of #Afghanistan? Politicians are just unable to admit that NATO threw Afghanistan to the #Jihadists. Image
So much crocodile tears are shed in Washington DC by politicians, bureaucrats and media, about the "fate of Afghan women, youth and minorities."

A #TalibanDeal horror. Image

A number of people have been asking my thoughts on recent developments in #Afghanistan. Now that I’m back from a week of sandcastle building, a THREAD to that effect. 1/n
1st, a few thoughts on recent #Taliban gains. That the TB are suddenly gaining ground in rural areas shouldn’t have been a surprise to anyone. eg, I predicted the group would have a slight military adv post-US withdrawal in a @CTCWP paper back in JAN:… 2/n
@CTCWP The #Taliban have—for years—been employing a strategy of capturing rural areas IOT generate position & resources to threaten more populated areas, as we @CNA_org described in our independent threat assessment for Congress back in 2013 (…). 3/n
