The Weekly Recap: The Taliban Hotel Blitz and NATO's Final Stand in Afghanistan

The Weekly Recap Our weekly defence and security news saga continues as Jonathan Dowdall and Rob Densmore hash over the past seven days of headlines. At the top of the list is the bold Taliban attack on Kabul's notorious Inter-Continental Hotel, followed by a breakdown of conjectured Afghan troop withdrawal figures among NATO's more vocal members. Confusion mounts as analysts work to decipher what Obama's 'reverse surge' will mean for other NATO nations: how many troops will remain versus what percentage of each member nation's total will actually change. If you find yourself lost as the debate heats up, you won't be alone. Join us each week for your defence and security news fix - on The Weekly Recap.
