1) There is a lot to unpack in @KimDozier's report on the so-called peace deal with the Taliban. First and foremost, the Taliban refuses to denounce al Qaeda, while the US with withdraw most of its forces by late 2020.
@KimDozier 2) "... while the Taliban has agreed to guarantee that there will be no foreign fighters in the areas they control, they have not said they will repudiate al-Qaeda." This should be a non-starter.
@KimDozier 3) Again, no cease fire for you, Afghans. "And they [Taliban] have agreed to a ceasefire only with U.S. forces as they withdraw, not Afghan government troops." Just as Mullah Hibatullah said... longwarjournal.org/archives/2019/…
@KimDozier 4) Talk about negotiating from a position of weakness. The Taliban smell blood in the water. "Khalilzad has told Afghan, UN and NATO officials that if the talks in Doha fail, Trump might pull U.S. troops out even faster."
@KimDozier 5) @US4AfghanPeace claims that this is "a #peace agreement not a withdrawal agreement." As @KimDozier's report shows, nothing could be further from the truth.
@KimDozier @US4AfghanPeace 6) It is high time the US Congress exercises its oversight abilities and grill @US4AfhganPeace on his shameful negotiations to surrender Afghanistan to the Taliban.
@KimDozier @US4AfghanPeace 7) As @thomasjoscelyn & I, and even the United Nations, have pointed out numerous times, al Qaeda is fighting alongside the Taliban to this day. The Taliban is lying about this, and Khalilzad knows it. Yet he trusts the Taliban to be a CT partner.
