Carter Sees Challenges in Afghanistan

The Washington Post reports that “Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter predicted Friday more tough fighting ahead in Afghanistan as the United States seeks to help local forces beat back a surge in Taliban attacks and contain an emerging threat from militants linked to the Islamic State.”  

“Carter touched down at Operating Base Fenty in Afghanistan’s Nangahar province — along the Pakistan border east of Kabul — where an array of armed groups pose a major test to Afghan forces as the bulk of foreign troops withdraw.”
