 File under: Taliban 

I told you they won't let you leave. It'd be best if the American forces simply denied that peace has been broken and... err, continue to leave. Leave them to their fate and kill them from afar if they dare venture in your domain again.

#6 Because the Afghan Gov never agreed to it. The Taliban can demand ice cream cones for every member but until agreement, have only doorknobs to lick.

#7 You cannot expect them to honor an agreement when they have no honor. It's time to walk away.

#8  Because the Afghan Gov never agreed to it.

Pliny Black9343 nails it. The Taliban are the only ones who loudly claimed it had been agreed to. In fact, the Taliban are imprisoned by the Afghans, not the Americans. And the Afghans were not included in the negotiations. They are just gearing up to send their negotiators to Doha now, I believe, and no doubt an exchange of prisoners is one of the items on the agenda.
