The US has about 14,000 troops in Afghanistan, most of which are  present as part of a larger NATO-led mission to train, advise and assist Afghan forces. Any withdrawal would be complicated by the fact that the United States is  part of NATO's Resolute Support mission. Trump has long been critical of the US  presence in Afghanistan, which began after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. But lawmakers have echoed Allen's concern about a hasty departure. South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham told CNN's Kate Bolduan on Thursday that according to our military commanders and everybody I know, we want to withdraw from Afghanistan with honor and do it based on conditions on the ground. Based on my assessment in Afghanistan, if we withdrew anytime soon, you would be paving the way for a second 9/11, Graham said. Graham noted that Trump has said he wants other countries to do the fighting. Since August of 2017, 5,600 Afghans have died fighting the Taliban and ISIS, he told Bolduan. Eighteen American killed in combat, four killed through accidents. God bless the 22. Trump has long questioned troop presence in Afghanistan Trump has repeatedly questioned the need to spend US blood and treasure in Afghanistan, asking in 2011: When will we stop wasting our money on rebuilding Afghanistan? We must rebuild our country first. Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump When will we stop wasting our money on rebuilding Afghanistan? We must rebuild our country first. 1,140 2:43 AM - Oct 8, 2011 Twitter Ads info and privacy 1,499 people are talking about this Twitter Ads info  and privacy Since his election, the President has made his frustration with the continued military presence clear. Outlining his strategy for the country in an August 2017 address, the President said, I share the American people's frustration. I also share their frustration over a foreign policy that has spent too much time, energy, money -- and, most importantly, lives -- trying to rebuild countries in our own image instead of pursuing our security interests above all other considerations. In an interview with The Washington Post last month, Trump laid out his rationale for keeping US troops in the country in a way that made clear the impetus to remain wasn't his. We're there because virtually every expert that I have and speak to say if we don't go there, they're going to be fighting over here, he said. Nearly two decades in, a stalemate More than a year after Trump announced his administration's new strategy for achieving success in Afghanistan and the wider region, the situation remains decidedly mixed, with the conflict at a stalemate. Though the casualty rate for US troops is far lower than it was earlier in the war, Americans are still losing their lives 17 years after it began. While the Taliban is unable to take major cities or towns, the Afghan security forces, despite receiving US support, are still unable to put an end to the insurgency. US troops have continued to suffer casualties this year, even though they are largely serving in a supporting role, with local Afghan forces doing most of the fighting. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani recently announced that about 29,000 Afghan soldiers and  police had been killed or wounded since 2015. US casualties during that same  period declined sharply as American soldiers largely shifted away from direct combat. We used the term stalemate a year ago, and, relatively speaking, it has not changed much, Gen. Joseph Dunford, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a conference in Halifax last month. News about the Afghanistan plan comes a day after Trump ordered the full and rapid withdrawal of US troops from Syria, declaring the US has defeated ISIS in Syria. The decision, a sharp reversal from previously stated US policy, surprised foreign allies and US lawmakers, sparking angry rebukes, rebuttals and warnings of intensified congressional oversight even as the White House said troops are already on their way home. We have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump Presidency, Trump tweeted Wednesday morning. Planning for that  pullout is already underway, a US defense and an administration official told CNN. Artisans: Japan   Washington (CNN)Defense Secretary James Mattis resigned Thursday on the heels of President Donald Trump's plans to withdraw troops from Syria, citing irreconcilable policy differences in a move that took Washington by surprise. Because you have the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with yours on these and other subjects, I believe it is right for me to step down from my position, Mattis wrote in his letter to the President. Earlier Thursday, a senior administration official told CNN's Jake Tapper that Mattis was vehemently opposed to the Syria decision and a possible Afghanistan troop withdrawal.

Why? READ: James Mattis' resignation letter In Syria withdrawal, Trump discards advice from allies and officials In Syria withdrawal, Trump discards advice from allies and officials Indeed, Mattis' resignation letter amounts to a rebuke of several of Trump's foreign policy views, with the outgoing defense secretary touting the importance of US alliances and of being unambiguous in approaching adversaries such as Russia and China. It is devoid of any praise for the President. The resignation emerged at a chaotic moment in Trump's presidency: The US government is teetering on the edge of a government shutdown, the Trump administration is about to face the hot light of Democratic investigations and the President is grappling with the fallout of a series of firings and resignations. Trump, seeking to downplay the news, stepped out in front of Mattis' resignation, spinning it as a retirement. Mattis did not explicitly cite his opposition to the President's planned withdrawal of US troops from Syria -- which caught US allies off guard -- but the retired four-star general was privately adamant in urging Trump against the pullback. 'They had differences' Play Video Toobin: There are no more grown-ups in the room 01:23 It was just the latest issue on which Mattis has sought to position himself as a bulwark against some of the President's rashest decisions, but his relationship with the President has grown increasingly fractured in recent months and his efforts to deter Trump on key issues less influential. In his letter, Mattis pointedly stated that the strength of the US depends in part on the strength of its alliances around the globe, many of which have become notably  frayed under Trump. One core belief I have always held is that our strength as a nation is inextricably linked to the strength of our unique and comprehensive system of alliances and partnerships. While the US remains the indispensable nation in the free world, we cannot protect our interests or serve that role effectively without maintaining strong alliances and showing respect to those allies, he added. Mattis met with Trump one-on-one in the Oval Office, a senior White House official told CNN's Kaitlan Collins. Mattis told Trump he was going to be leaving and offered his resignation letter. They had differences on some issues, the official said. Trump announced Mattis' departure in a tweet, saying, General Jim Mattis will be retiring, with distinction, at the end of February, after having served my Administration as Secretary of Defense for the past two years. The President touted the tremendous progress that has been made during Mattis' tenure at the helm of the Defense Department and thanked him for his service. Trump said a successor will be named shortly. In a sign of the swift nature of the resignation, senior White House officials found out about it from the President's tweet, according to two officials. A senior administration official could not say if armed forces were told before the tweet. Syria decision Play Video CNN reporter: Mattis is falling on his sword 04:47 Mattis' resignation comes just a day after the President ordered the full and rapid withdrawal of US troops from Syria over the objections of Mattis, other senior officials and scores of lawmakers, who declared it a strategic blunder. The announcement of his departure comes just over an hour after reports emerged that Trump may also be considering a drawdown of US troops in Afghanistan. Sources told CNN's Jake Tapper that the President has not yet made a final decision, but officials are concerned and convinced that he might do so, and soon. Mattis is the latest senior administration to leave Trump's Cabinet, after former Attorney General Jeff Sessions was pushed out the day after the midterm elections in November, former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was unceremoniously fired in March and national security adviser H.R. McMaster was replaced earlier this year. But reaction to Mattis' departure was strikingly different. This is scary, tweeted Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee. Secretary Mattis has been an island of stability amidst the chaos of the Trump administration. South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, a strong Trump supporter who opposes the President's decision to pull out of Syria, expressed great sadness over Mattis' resignation. He is one of the great military leaders in American history. He should be proud of the service
