Afghanistan

The Obama administration is debating the pace of the drawdown of US forces in Afghanistan. ISAF troops in Kandahar killed two Afghans after opening fire on a car that attempted to ram into the soldiers. Security forces killed and captured several Taliban, HIG, and Haqqani Network commanders and fighters in Kandahar, Zabul, Khost, and Logar.
