David Barno, Center for a New American Security

President Obama says most troops will be out of Afghanistan by the end of 2016. Some of the billions of dollars worth of equipment over there will come back to be refurbished. Some will have to be sold or destroyed. All those people combined with all of the gear is a major logistics effort. How can the military pull it off? Army Lt. Gen. Dave Barno (Ret.) is a senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the challenges the Defense Department will face as it withdraws from Afghanistan.
