'Charlie Wilson' redux?

Some on Capitol Hill are voicing concern of a repeat of the late 1980s, when the United States helped the Mujahadeen get rid of the Soviets, but failed to "hold" Afghanistan by staying to help it rebuild, depicted in the movie "Charlie Wilson's War." This allowed the Taliban to fill the vacuum and seize power.
