New York Times, 13 October 2012
In an unusually long editorial, the influential New York Times now takes the position that US troops should withdraw from Afghanistan even before the end of 2014. ‘This conclusion represents a change on our part’, it says. ‘The war in Afghanistan had powerful support at the outset, including ours, after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.’ And it concludes: ‘We are not arguing that everything will work out well after the United States leaves Afghanistan. [… But] America’s global interests suffer when it is mired in unwinnable wars in distant regions. […] We need to exit as soon as we safely can.’
