Afghan Tribal Elders to Decide on US Troop Immunity

• antiwar.com
 Afghan President Hamid Karzai said on Monday that an assembly of tribal elders would make the final decision on whether to grant US troops legal immunity post-2014.
 
The Obama administration has insisted on legal immunity for the residual US troops in Afghanistan following the drawdown in 2014.
Asked in a press conference last week about immunity, Obama said “nowhere do we have any kind of security agreement with a country without immunity for our troops,” adding that “it will not be possible for us to have any kind of U.S. troop presence post-2014 without assurances that our men and women who are operating there are in some way subject to the jurisdiction of another country.”
