The U.S. and Taliban deal detailing the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan has begun. Preliminary efforts have begun to remove all forces by the end of 14 months. Now, the commander of U.S. Central Command has stated that small teams of special operation troops will remain in the country to help keep the peace and fight terrorism. Many officials are concerned that the Taliban will have a resurgence in Afghanistan once the U.S. and NATO are no longer there to keep an eye on them. Currently lawmakers are saying that a force of less than 8,600 troops could remain in the country as long as the Taliban continues to launch attacks on Afghan security forces.
