U.S., Karzai agree on Wardak withdrawal

• Washington Post
After weeks of lambasting the United States for its willfulness in Afghanistan, President Hamid Karzai reached an agreement with U.S. forces Wednesday over their withdrawal from Wardak province, on the western outskirts of Kabul.

Karzai and Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, announced that American troops would gradually pull out of Wardak, along with U.S.-­trained Afghan Local Police (ALP) units.
