About two weeks ago, Mr. Khalilzad told an audience at the U.S. Institute for Peace that his team had gotten Taliban agreement to "guarantees and enforcement mechanisms" that will ensure that Afghanistan would never again be a safe haven for terrorists such as al Qaeda and the Islamic State (ISIS).
