Coalition tries to ease Afghan angst

The statement came as the Afghan government moved ahead with an order to expel the special forces from Wardak province within two weeks, undeterred by fears the decision could leave the area and the neighboring capital more vulnerable to Al Qaeda and other insurgents.
