The heads of the Senate and House Intelligence Committees said Sunday that the Taliban is poised for a “come back.” Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) on State of the Union Sunday said that the Afghan Army will not be able to sustain itself financially and that she was fearful about an Afghanistan with “60 percent of the country controlled by the Taliban.”
Feinstein called Afghan President Hamid Karzai who has not signed a bilateral security agreement with the US, Karzai “a cipher.”
Congressman Mike Rogers (R-MI) weighed in as well. “How you leave may be even more important than how you got there,” he said.
“To just say this is too hard and we're going to pack up and come home, we saw the consequences of that in Iraq. It is absolute chaos,” said Rogers.
