General Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that it is “possible” the U.S. will coordinate with the Taliban to carry out future counterterrorism operations against ISIS-K in Afghanistan at a Pentagon briefing on Wednesday.

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin sounded less sure.

While Austin acknowledged that the U.S. had worked with the Taliban to evacuate American citizens and Afghans, he noted that that coordination was “on a very narrow set of issues and it was just to get as many people out as we possibly could.”

“I would not make any leaps of logic to broader issues,” he said.
