Has the US outstayed its welcome in Kabul?
Anti-American feeling has never been so strong in ten years of war. Afghans are tired of the repeated scandals involving GI's. The latest incident came on March 12th, when a US soldier opened fire on Afghan civilians, killing 16 people. The Bagram incident, where American soldiers burned copies of the Koran, also profoundly shocked the Muslim nation. With every blunder, the American presence in the country after 2014 is called into question, as are ongoing strategic negotiations.
