U.S. Central Commander head Gen. Frank McKenzie has reported that the U.S. is providing limited support to the Taliban in a fight against Islamic State fighters. The shocking report gave almost no other detail, including location, reasons, or updates on how the fight was going. McKenzie did comment that the Taliban had recently been successful in driving back ISIS fighters, especially in the southern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan. Defense officials declined to comment or provide any details, except that they hope every force in the area is countering ISIS and working to eliminate new factions.
