Donilon Calls Karzai's Refusal To Sign Security Deal "Reckless"

National security adviser says U.S. could withdraw all troops from Afghanistan without the deal

On "This Week" Sunday, former Obama National Security Adviser Tom Donilon called Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai's refusal to sign a long-term security agreement with the U.S. "reckless."

"President Karzai should go ahead and sign the agreement. It has been approved by a very large assembly of leaders in Afghanistan," Donilon told George Stephanopoulos on "This Week."

"His refusal to sign it at this point is reckless," Donilon added. "Reckless in terms of Afghanistan and I think it adversely impacts our ability to plan coherently and comprehensively… At some point it becomes impossible to make those kinds of plans."
