AAN co-director Thomas Ruttig is quoted here (in Spanish translation) about Trump’s latest, confusing (or confused) tweet saying all US soldiers “should” be out by Christmas, saying that although it is unlikely that this becomes policy, “a unilateral decision” by the US president can’t be ruled out and that such messaging “contributes to further uncertainty among Afghans about their future”:

Los analistas no descartan, sin embargo, que Trump pueda adoptar una decisión en solitario. “Esto contribuiría a una todavía mayor inseguridad en el sentimiento de los afganos sobre su fututo y el de su país”, declara Thomas Ruttig, codirector del centro de estudios Afghanistan Analysts Network.
