ISIS will take Kabul ‘within days’ of U.S. departure - US Official:
“Kabul will fall within days of us leaving,” declared a U.S. intelligence official in Afghanistan who requested anonymity told G2 Bulletin.
In an interview, he said major jihadi groups have now sworn allegiance to ISIS, and the Taliban increasingly shows signs of following suit with the recent discovery that the reclusive Taliban leader, Mohammad Omar, has been dead for two years.
There are three main players in Afghanistan, he said, pointing to Hezb-e-Islami Gulbudin, Jallaldin Haqqani and the Taliban. He said al-Qaida has only a “bit part” in Afghanistan, supplying money, equipment, training and suicide bombers.
