Two comments: Going unreported is the fact that these internal attacks are confined to certain individuals/units of the Afghan forces and are not reflective of Afghan forces in general. (The problem stems from having tried to construct Afghan governmental structures from the top down instead of from the bottom up. ie; building a unitary system rather than a federal one.) Our precipitous withdrawal from Afghanistan will leave the loyal Afghans in an untenable position while giving the treasonous ones enhanced capabilities. The American public is not being told these facts, thinks most Afghans hate us and thus considers abandonment of reliable allies the propoer course of action. This can lead to disaster.
