With the fall of the Taliban, the rise of a new generation of insurgents is forcing the United States and its coalition partners to confront a new, potent threat to security and stability in Afghanistan. The so-called «Taliban Two», more than two years after the fall of its predecessor, demonstrates the dangerous longevity of the insurgency’s capability to adapt and regenerate.

Given the multi-generational presence of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, there is no safe exit strategy for the United States to end the war there. While some on Capitol Hill believe that Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s requests for troop reduction are a negotiating tactic, it does not make sense to have an open-ended commitment to a
