Hamed Wardak Urges Continued US Presence In Afghanistan

Hamed Wardak was recently interviewed by BBC where he expressed his views on the importance of the NATO and US presence in the country of Afghanistan.

According to Wardak, the Afghanis are striving towards becoming a flourishing and prosperous society, but they need time to arrive at that goal. The presence of the international security forces in Afghanistan play a crucial role in giving the people of Afghanistan that time to develop into a successful and independent country.

The goal of the US is to withdraw by the year 2014, according to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  However, Hamed Wardak believes that there will not be a total withdrawal, but some type of reduced presence like a “strategic over-watch”, which means that “there will still be troops out there but not necessarily leading combat operations.”
