Folks, the war in Afghanistan is not over. We are making significant progress, but there is still work to be done. Like in Iraq, an elected parliament must be seated. That vote will take place Sept 18. We must also ensure that Afghanistan has a capable Army and Police Force, as well as a judicial and corrections system. Finally, the Afghan Government must extend its reach beyond Kabul. That is all happening, despite Taliban efforts to derail the process.
This new government is starting from scratch, its gonna take time. The war is not over.
