Afghan Taliban sources have reported significant progress in their six-day negotiations with US envoy Zalmay Khalilzad in Doha, and that America will withdraw its troops within 18 months after the agreement is concluded. Although the Doha agreement remains a draft mentioned in statement here and there, and is not binding yet, and that another round of negotiations will be held on 25 of this month 2/2019 as reported by Reuters on 27/1/2019... But the central question remains: Did the Taliban fall after these long years of jihad in the American trap? How did that happen? And where are things heading?
