“U.S.-Afghanistan Talks Falter…” by Alissa J. Rubin (TIMES, 3/5/12)

     Hasn’t the U.S. “withdrawal deadline” from Afghanistan been moved up to 6/30/13?  Recent articles in the TIMES have reported that information.  Doesn’t Alissa J. Rubin read her own newspaper?

     Alas, the fact that differences have hardened between the United States and Afghanistan (“longtime, if always wary, allies”) should come as no surprise to your readers!

     Now that it is clear that the U.S. is pulling out of Afghanistan, it should be facilitated ASAP.  Trying to do otherwise in the hope of leaving a stable situation in place when the withdrawal is finally concluded, is wishful thinking.
