Two sources report similarly:

"ALL OPERATIONS ARE CURRENTLY SUSPENDED. A 3 STAR MUST APPROVE ANY ACTIONS. ADDITIONALLY, ALL ISAF FORCES ARE TO SEPARATE FROM THEIR AFGHAN COUNTERPARTS."

END

Not quite....war is about to break-out.

Now I’m wondering if this film etc. was all a US distraction ....to set the stage for war. Not a Bush or Clinton style war....a WAR.

“Very soon. Some of the teams are already coming home now.”

Unfortunately more troops are scheduled to deploy. I pray every day that they cancel the deployment.

“Then spray the population down with DDT.”

Why would you do them the favor of delicing them before we leave?

He doesn’t care about the Afghans.

He wanted to put the lice out of their misery.

Looks like Yon figured he got duped and pulled the page. I found no conformation of this report anywhere.

And just like that, confirmation from CBS News:

The order effectively suspends "until further notice" most of the operations which U.S. and Afghan troops conduct side by side. At higher headquarters, Afghans and Americans will still work together, but in the field small unit operations putting Afghan soldiers alongside Americans -- the guts of the U.S. strategy to turn the fighting over to Afghans -- will be suspended unless an exception is granted by a commanding general.
