(USA/Afghanistan) Writing Off Afghanistan: Does Biden Have a Choice? (Anthony Cordesman, CSIS)

The United States has now spent nearly a year reducing its military, diplomatic, and aid presence in Afghanistan. It has never made the full scale of these reductions public, but it has talked about reducing its military presence to 2,500 military personnel by January 2021 and about closing many military facilities. UN and other reporting have also reflected a steady decline in aid activity.
