Thanks Barack… Afghan Soldiers Already Selling Weapons,Vehicles & Ceding Territory to Taliban

Aghanistan is preparing for the US withdrawal.

Afghan soldiers are already selling weapons and vehicles and ceding territory to Taliban.
The Vancouver Sun reported:

Afghan soldiers are selling their weapons and vehicles to the Taliban, sharing intelligence with them and signing covert ceasefires as they pre-pare for NATO forces to with-draw, according to a classified military report.

Despite billions of dollars spent by western allies on training and equipping Afghanistan’s security forces, they are ceding territory without a fight or even joining forces with the insurgents in some cases.

The report is based on the interrogation of thousands of captured Taliban. It makes depressing reading for coalition forces more than a decade after the start of the conflict.

According to the NATO study, Taliban fighters believe they have overcome the American troop surge, that their return to power is “inevitable” and that they can easily sub-due President Hamid Karzai’s forces once the Afghan army and police take charge of security in 2014.

It also says that the Pakistani government remains “intimately involved” with the insurgent group, despite U.S. efforts to threaten or cajole it to cut off support. Taliban prisoners claim that Pakistan’s ISI intelligence agency is “thoroughly aware of Taliban activities and the whereabouts of all senior Taliban personnel.”

In a further setback Wednesday, the Afghan Taliban said that no peace negotiation process had been agreed with the international community, “particularly the Americans.” ... o-taliban/
