Last month, US President Joe Biden’s orders to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan were completed, marking the end of America’s longest-running war. However, there are growing concerns in the United States that Afghanistan’s territory could once again be used for terrorist attacks on US and foreign interests.

Breyer’s concerns were echoed by CIA Deputy Director David Cohen, who also told the conference that intelligence officials were already aware of al Qaeda’s resurgence in Afghanistan. At the same conference, the director of national intelligence, Aurel Heinz, said that the biggest threat to the United States was not from Afghanistan, but from terrorists in Yemen, Syria, Somalia and Iraq.
