this week that the U.S. should begin planning an exit from Afghanistan.
Clark told a House Armed Services subcommittee that "our presence long
term there is not a good thing."

"The legacy of Vietnam really looms over these
discussions," Clark said. "It's particularly painful for me to see
where we are in Afghanistan."
