“The Safety of Kabul”:

Kabul—the capitol of Afghanistan—is a relatively safe, quiet city, guarded mostly by the Afghan National Police and bereft of chaotic violence. So says Jonathan Foreman, a reporter with the National Review who was embedded with coalition forces in Afghanistan and before that, Iraq. Foreman says Kabul is no Baghdad and uses examples from his experience there to give a first hand account of progress in the previously Taliban-ruled city. Foreman says the NATO forces in Kabul “wear soft caps with their helmets at their belts—the level of threat in the city does not merit greater caution.”
