“I’m not using the ‘withdrawal’ word right now,” the Pentagon’s top uniformed leader said Wednesday.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford downplayed concerns that President Trump will withdraw from Afghanistan without leaving enough troops to keep it from becoming a haven for terror groups.

As negotiations with the Taliban appear to be nearing some sort of conclusion, critics fear that Trump — who has called it “ridiculous” that the United States has been at war in Afghanistan for 18 years — will make the same kind of abrupt announcement as he did when ordering a withdrawal from Syria in December.
