We're going to have to go back in': Obama's Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says US forces will return to Afghanistan to tackle terror threats by Taliban and ISIS-K



Leon Panetta, the former defense secretary and CIA director under President Barack Obama, has disclosed that the United States military will have to return to Afghanistan to tackle terror threats posed by Taliban and ISIS-K after a suicide attack killed 13 U.S. troops and at least 90 Afghans.


The Democrat made this known in an interview with Erin Burnett for her CNN show OutFront that the withdrawal of American troops left the United States in a 'very dangerous and difficult situation.'


He was asked if he believed it was right for the Biden administration to stick with the August 31 deadline for removing American troops from the war-torn country.


'The bottom line is, our work is not done. We're going to have to go after ISIS. I'm glad the president said we're going to hunt them down and pay a price for what they did in killing our warriors. And we should,' Paneta said.



'We're going to have to go back in to get ISIS. We're probably going to have to go back in when Al Qaeda resurrects itself, as they will, with this Taliban. They've gave safe haven to Al Qaeda before, they'll probably do it again.'Latest Post
