U.S. military officials are preparing for every possible scenario as their forces plan to leave Afghanistan.

General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters traveling with him Thursday that the pullout is "complex and not without risk."

The extent to which the Taliban could continue attacking Afghan government forces during the U.S. withdrawal is a concern for the Pentagon. During a Wednesday appearance at the Sedona Forum, which is hosted by the McCain Institute, Milley said as the troops withdraw, military officials will watch the level of Taliban attacks on the Afghan security forces "very carefully."
 
"In the worst-case analysis, you have a potential collapse of the government, a potential collapse of the military, you have a civil war, and you have all the humanitarian catastrophe that goes with it," he said.
