In Afghanistan, President Trump has conditionally approved a peace deal with the Taliban — potentially marking the beginning of the end of the longest war in U.S. history. Under the deal, the United States would gradually begin to withdraw U.S. troops if the Taliban reduce violence during a so-called test period later this month. The deal would also trigger negotiations between the Taliban and Afghan officials. The potential peace deal comes as a first-of-its-kind report from the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction reveals that thousands of people have been killed or wounded during the reconstruction process. The majority of the victims were Afghan civilians.
