Afghan President Karzai's refusal to allow NATO troops to search Afghan homes after the 2014 withdrawal is causing concern that the U.S. - Afghan Security Pact may fail. OK, so it fails. We have no business searching Afghan homes. Can you imagine a treaty allowing a foreign power to search at will American homes?? I certainly cannot. 2014 : We declare victory and leave. Period. Will there be chaos afterward? Yes. But that is for the Afghans to sort out.
