I thought the U.S had a "We don't negotiate with Terrorists" policy? I think the last 8 years prove the shit is fucked, and we should just let them decide their own fate and leave (if they really don't like the Taliban, they will get rid of them themselves).
But then again, occupying the middle-east was never for humanitarian reasons. I don't know why politicians are still pushing that angle, everyone knows it's horseshit. The only thing they are protecting is full-speed-ahead capitalism.
