…the war in Afghanistan?
As the United States continues to draw down troops in Afghanistan, extremism inside the country is creeping back in.
The US and Afghanistan are nearing confirmation of a security deal that is a priority on both sides. As the bilateral negotiations finally produced mutually agreeable language, President Obama reassured President Karzai that American forces would "respect the sanctity and dignity of Afghans" but did not apologize for the US military presence (as many reported had been requested).
Taxpayer money is reportedly being used to fund Afghan companies with ties to terrorist organizations, according to Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction John Sopko.
