The most elite US-trained forces in Afghanistan routed by the Taliban, another sign the war is a lost cause

The most elite US-trained forces in Afghanistan suffered a devastating defeat to the Taliban in what's often referred to as the country's "safest district" over the weekend, in yet another sign the war is a lost cause.

Early on Sunday, a company of roughly 50 Afghan special-forces commandos was almost entirely destroyed in the rural district of Jaghori, according to a report from The New York Times.

Over 30 of the US-trained commandos were killed, The Times said, in a district that is "famous" for how peaceful it is.
