This is US admitting defeat..whatever deal is made, it’ll favor Taliban.

After our withdrawal, there will be a civil war. Then the violence will spill out..same with refugees.

Also, Taliban isn’t going to use narco cash from opium trade to pay pensions and 401Ks!
From a counterterrorism standpoint, this is a nightmare!

And this will spiral out of control once the Taliban is used as a proxy against India and or Iran!
"Now suddenly adhering to the date suited to Trump's election date has become more important than the meticulous task of bringing peace to Afghanistan,"
