WASHINGTON - It seemed like it had been settled years ago - the United States would withdraw all military forces from Afghanistan in 2014. Now reports have surfaced of a deal that would change that, and a retired Army colonel is skeptical that such a move would improve the situation.

Secretary of State John Kerry announced Tuesday that the U.S. and Afghanistan has reached an agreement on the final language of a bilateral security agreement, which will govern the presence of U.S. forces in Afghanistan after the NATO combat mission ends next year.

Retired Col. Jack Jacobs told WTOP's Mike Moss and Bruce Alan in an interview Wednesday that he's not surprised.
