Leon Panetta: It’s a mistake for the U.S. to count on the Taliban in Afghanistan

  • The Taliban, who were ousted from power by the U.S. in 2001, now control nearly all of Afghanistan.
  • “I think the Taliban is not to be trusted. The reality is that the Taliban has provided safe haven for terrorists in the past, and they will continue to provide a safe haven for terrorists,” said Panetta, who served as defense secretary from July 2011 to February 2013 under former President Barack Obama.
