NATO, Karzai reach agreement on withdrawal of Special Forces from Wardak Province | Foreign Policy

A spokesman for the Afghan Ministry of Defense said Wednesday that Afghan and NATO officials had come to an agreement on the gradual withdrawal of U.S. Special Forces from Wardak Province, which is strategically located just west of Kabul (AP, Reuters). NATO also said in a statement that U.S. Gen. Joseph Dunford agreed to first bring Special Forces out of the Nerkh district in northern Wardak, and later from the rest of the province. President Karzai demanded last week that the Special Forces leave Wardak after allegations of their involvement in human rights abuses there.
