“I would like to highlight the remarkable difference between Afghanistan today vis Afghanistan under the Taliban rule. Today more than five times as many children are in school, roughly 85% of Afghans have basic health care within one hour of where they live, women represent 27% of the parliament, and 52% of the Afghan people believe their government is headed in the right direction.”

— Army Lieut. General Curtis Scaparrotti, No. 2 U.S. military officer in Afghanistan, speaking to reporters Monday via at the Pentagon via teleconference from Kabul
