U.S.-Led Afghan Raids to Continue

Raids on Afghan homes will continue after the bulk of U.S. soldiers leave in 2014, according to an agreement reached Tuesday between American and Afghan officials. The raids on Afghan homes had been a key sticking point in negotiations for post-2014 Afghanistan, and Afghan president Hamid Karzai conceded to the raids under “extraordinary circumstances” only. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is also expected to admit “mistakes” by U.S. military forces and promise that these mistakes will not be repeated, a spokesman for Karzai told The New York Times.
