Taliban not to inaugurate Afghan govt on 9/11


The US on Friday dodged the ignominy of having Taliban install its government on the 20th anniversary of 9/11 after Russia reportedly rained on the extremists’ party by declining to attend the inauguration in Kabul. The US President is expected to visit the 9/11 Memorial in NYC on the 20th anniversary amid continuing disquiet among critics of the administration who think he ceded ground to the Taliban too easily.
