Kamala Harris, to the Council on Foreign Relations, August 21, 2019:

Nobody can predict what President Trump will do between now and 2021, so as soon as I take office, I will bring together our military leaders, national security advisers, and top diplomats to coordinate and implement that withdrawal plan. I fully recognize the importance of diplomacy and development to success in Afghanistan, and I want to ensure that the country is on a path to stability, that we protect the gains that have been made for Afghan women and others, and that it never again becomes a safe haven for terrorists.

Is Afghanistan today “on a path to stability”?  Has the U.S. “protected the gains that have been made for Afghan women and others”? With the al-Qaeda affiliated Haqqani-group now running security in Kabul, how likely is it that Afghanistan “never again becomes a safe haven for terrorists”?
