Afghanistan Chaos Seen After U.S. Troop Withdrawal, Post Says

A classified intelligence report predicts progress the U.S. and allies have made in Afghanistan during the last three years will deteriorate significantly by 2017 as American troop levels are drawn down, the Washington Post reported.

The National Intelligence Estimate, comprising information gathered by the nation’s 16 intelligence agencies, predicts a resurgence of influence by the Taliban as the U.S. withdraws, the Post said, citing unnamed officials who have read or been briefed on the report.
