Two short quotes – one of AAN’s Thomas Ruttig and one from an earlier AAN dispatch:

The amount of territory the Taliban control in Afghanistan tends to ebb and flow as they launch frequent fresh offensives, but Thomas Ruttig, co-director and co-founder of the research organization the Afghanistan Analysts Network, notes that the group has “increased its activities and scope of territory covered almost year-by-year since 2001.”  (…)

The Afghanistan Analysts Network describes one district of Baghlan, home to an estimated 70,000 people, as “Taliban-infested.”
