(AP) — America’s longest war is approaching a crossroads. President Joe Biden’s choices in Afghanistan boil down to this: withdraw all troops by May and risk a resurgence of extremist dangers, or stay and possibly prolong the war in hopes of compelling the Taliban to make peace. The odds may favor the second option, but officials say no decision has been made. The administration is studying the February 2020 Doha deal in which the Taliban agreed to stop attacking U.S. forces and to start peace talks with the government, among other things, in exchange for a withdrawal of all foreign troops by May 1.
