State Dept. internal memo warned of Afghan collapse in July: Report

An internal memo at the State Department in July warned that Kabul could collapse after the United States troop withdrawal deadline on August 31, an official and person familiar with the cable stated, according to Thursday reporting by The Wall Street Journal.

The cable was sent through the State Department’s confidential dissent channel on July 13, and warned the Afghanistan military would be unable to stop a Taliban advance. The memo alerted officials of imminent movement by the terrorist organization, and recommended several ways to alleviate the impending crisis, in addition to expediting evacuation.
