Former US Special Representative for Afghanistan Peace Talks, Zalmay Khalilzad, has said that the US was losing at the hands of the Taliban. To compensate for this, he had chosen a deal with the Taliban as a last option. In a discussion with CBS News, he said, the US Army tried many times to strengthen itself on the battlefield, but each time it failed.

According to Tolo News, Khalilzad did not just stop there, he also said that the deal with the Taliban was based only on the fact that the US could not win from them there. Even time was not supporting us there, so it was better to settle with the Taliban now or later.

Khalilzad also took a jibe at former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, saying that he could not bring the defense sector together even in this time. The situation got worse as Ghani fled from Kabul, he said. He admitted, the US military was there for two decades, but failed to bring democracy.

America remained indifferent to the ground reality
Khalilzad said that the US was only going according to the days on the calendar regarding the withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan, while it remained ignorant of the ground reality. He had no idea of ​​the ground reality. Ignoring the challenges there and the failures in the past, the US was limited only to preventing terrorist threats from Afghanistan.
