"When U.S. Central Command authorizes strikes against groups like ISIS-K or al Qaida in Afghanistan, they won’t be negotiating with the Taliban about where and when they can drop bombs.
"While the U.S. generally negotiates agreements with countries where it conducts strikes, the Pentagon considers Afghanistan essentially a free space, following the collapse of its elected government in August."...--quoting Military Times
The key word is "when." Note well: it is not "IF".
What a complete bozo this guy is.
Thanks, Charlie Sykes!!
