I must be slowing down ...

I am trying to put this all together - but am struggling to make sense of it all.

  • The Australian Government has ceased processing claims for refugee status for people from Afghanistan because of anticipation of an improved situation there removing the grounds for well founded fear of prosecution. 
But at the same time:
  • The Australian Government's travel advisory for Afghanistan states that the security situation is extremely dangerous.
  • Two Australian soldiers were killed yesterday and the Prime Minister advises that we face a difficult path ahead.
  • Human rights and the rule of law seem t b largely absent across most of the country particularly for minority groups.
This does not make sense. The only conclusion I can draw is that the Immigration authorities aren't talking to Foreign Affairs and Defence and vice versa.

Explanations welcome.
