Who are the terrorists in Afghanistan?

Last week, the UNSC amended its resolution declaring Al Qaeda and the Taliban to be terrorist organizations. Now the Taliban is exempt from condemnation. The move was meant to allow the White House to openly negotiate with the Taliban.

The UNSC decision creates a legal issue: what was NATO doing in Afghanistan for ten years if the Taliban are not terrorists? Certainly the Taliban hadn’t become less militant in recent years when the group emerged victorious against Western troops. It now appears that the United States invaded a relatively peaceful country whose government did not support foreign terrorism. Moreover, having recognized that the Taliban is not a terrorist group, the US still refuses to leave Afghanistan immediately and unconditionally.
