In an interview with The Hill, Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich.) offered his strongest warning to Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s government, saying Kabul is “reaching beyond what is realistic” in asking that the United States guarantee it $1 billion in annual funds for security after the war.

But Levin’s comments also highlighted a problem to the Pentagon, which has said Afghan National Security Forces will need up to $5 billion annually to maintain operations against the Taliban and insurgent forces after the U.S. exit.
