On Saturday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL) reacted to the tranquility deal between the United States and the Taliban by expressing his solicitousness over the timeline for the full withdrawal of American forces and inadequate detail on handling Pakistan and verbalizing that “there’s just an abundance of jeopardy here.”
Waltz verbalized, “Here’s my worry with this deal as it’s unfolding…I worry it has a timeline in there, 14 months for the full withdrawal of all U.S. forces. And I worry, number one, that that sends the signals to the sundry ethnic groups, who — right now, the ethnic tensions in Kabul are simmering just beneath the surface. And if the regime commences fracturing because they believe this is the commencement of the terminus of the U.S. involution, and then the army commences fracturing as well, the Afghan Army, we could find ourselves in a much worse place. The status quo is not great, at all. But we could — this could get worse. It could get much worse. And so, there’s just a plethora of peril here. The other piece, Pete, that I’m not optically discerning is, what do we do about Pakistan?”
