According to Obama, NATO and the Pentagon, the Afghan War ended December 28th, 2014, and we may or may not have won.

As the war is now over, there is now no need to report on it, and by classifying everything about Afghanistan a secret, it can be assured that there will be little pesky reporting on Afghanistan.

For futher reference, see Chapter 7, 1984, George Orwell, author.

also conveniently hidden are which Afghan warlords are being supported--probably the ones selling opium, I guess (its so embarrassing with the war on drugs and all.)
