Here is a link to the decree (it is in Dari and I haven’t had it translated yet), the press conference (partially in English), and today’s WaPo article on the situation (here).  This will raise interesting questions about who stands guard at the gates of US bases in Afghanistan.  Not totally MilJus but an interesting set of events.

Editorial comment: The Spokesperson’s Office for the Afghan Ofice of the President was incredibly helpful and efficient in getting me the presidential decree.  Makes me think there is hope for the Afghan government.

    As if Afghans have any say as to what goes on in this US outpost. No decree will get the US mercenaries out. Only insurgent force and the loss of support back home will.
