left hand, right hand
The Los Angeles Times reports that a new National Intelligence Estimate on Afghanistan is pretty discouraging. The war is said to be in a stalemate and the Kabul government is said to be corrupt and ineffective. The New York Times reports that the United States has been quietly pursuing talks with the Taliban that might lead to an end to the conflict. Connect the dots. Maybe the left hand and right hand are actually coordinated.
