The Biden administration continues to pull troops out of Afghanistan in a large-scale withdrawal. The military will now conduct counterterrorism efforts outside of Afghanistan.

  • Thomas Joscelyn, senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and senior editor for its Long War Journal, said the withdrawal opens new windows of opportunity for terrorists and significantly increases risk for attacks even though they might not be successful.
  • Joscelyn said it will be very challenging for the United States to track Al Qaeda, ISIS and affiliated groups in Afghanistan over the next few years.
  • Joscelyn said Al Qaeda has been in Afghanistan this whole time and is heavily intertwined with the Taliban.
