CNN reported, according to its sources, that “representatives of the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee last Tuesday sent a secret message to the office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency, in which they asked about the methods used, and what the experts of the “intelligence community are relying on when conducting such assessments.

And she pointed out that “members of the committee noted that over the past year, US intelligence agencies double-checked erroneous assessments of the capabilities of foreign forces, especially speaking about the assessment of the combat capability of the Ukrainian military before the start of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine and the combat capability of the Afghan government forces.” Prior to the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan and the rise of the Taliban to power in the country, she explained that “these two cases will be subject to the main analysis during the internal review.”
