Americans on both sides of the aisle were stunned this weekend when President Donald Trump announced that a top secret meeting between his administration and leaders of the Taliban had been cancelled after the violent fundamentalist group took credit for a bombing in Kabul that left 12 people, including an American soldier, dead.
