Afghanistan War: NATO Accused Of Misleading Reports

A new report Wednesday by a Kabul-based think tank accuses international forces of misleading the public by calling military operations “Afghan-led” even in cases where NATO or U.S. forces are the only troops on the ground.

The charge cuts to the heart of a public perception battle being waged in Afghanistan, where international troops are eager to showcase successes by Afghan forces and to downplay the role played by international soldiers as NATO draws down forces and hands over security to Afghan control.

IF the US and NATO leadership had one functioning brain cell left between them, they would leave Afghanistan immediately and negotiate with whatever government was left standing in Kabul for the pipeline route fees.

Of course, THAT … would be logical.
