One of America’s former military commanders in Afghanistan said Sunday that the situation there is falling apart even before the United States completes its withdrawal from the embattled Asian nation. Speaking on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” Gen. David Petraeus said, “The situation on the ground has become increasingly dire with each passing week.” “I fear we will look back and regret the decision to withdraw,” Petraeus said. “Sadly, we may regret that sooner than I had originally thought when I said that right after the decision was announced.” Petraeus, who retired from the Army to become director of the CIA in 2011, added: “Beyond that, I think we will also look back and regret the hasty way in which we seem to be doing this.”
