'There was nothing' to indicate Afghan collapse in 11 days -Milley

Milley said intelligence had "clearly indicated, multiple scenarios were possible," including a Taliban takeover following a rapid collapse of Afghan security forces and the government, a civil war or a negotiated settlement.

"The timeframe of rapid collapse - that was widely estimated and ranged from weeks to months and even years following our departure," Milley said. "There was nothing that I or anyone else saw that indicated the collapse of this army and this government in 11 days."
