The coming weeks and months "could be very, very damaging for the Afghan people " because the amount of aid pouring into the war-torn country " just won't be enough, "Fox News 'Trey Yingst reported Tuesday.
His comments come as US Secretary of State Antony Ben faces new discussions on Capitol Hill as to why the withdrawalAfghanistan's Biden administration turned out the way it did - and why the Taliban were able to come to power so quickly.
"The current situation in Afghanistan is returning to a somewhat normal life for the people ", Yingst told "America 's Newsroom ". "You can hear cars honking behind me, there is a lot of traffic in the city because there are still Taliban checkpoints set up all over Kabul.

"But the weeks and months ahead could be very, very damaging to the Afghan people. We arrived here in Kabul today on a chartered plane from the World Health Organization, oneof the many organizations around the world that are flooding Afghanistan with aid, "he continued." But that just won't be enough. The Qataris work there, the Pakistanis work there and the Turks work there.
"But still you have a population that is now under the rule of the Taliban and the Taliban ... do not have the relations with the international community to support a government here in Kabul and across the country , "he added.
The uncertainty arises as the outgoing Afghan government ambassador to the United Nations on Tuesday warned that "at this crucial time, the world cannot remain silent " on what is happening inside his country.
"The Afghan people need the action of the international community more than ever," Nasir Ahmad Andisha told the Human Rights Council, Reuters .
"The Taliban have sworn to respect women's rights, but women's rights are disappearing from the landscape," he reportedly continued.

On Monday, a Taliban commander was seen walking through his empty rooms and cell blocks, showing his friends where he had been formerly imprisoned.
The commander, who declined to give his name, was on a personal visit to the complex with a group of his friends. He told the Associated Press that he was arrested about ten years ago in the eastern province of Kunar and taken to Pul-e-Charkhi, tied up and with his eyes bands.
"I feel so bad when I remember those days " he said. He said the prisoners had suffered abuse and torture. He was imprisoned for about 14 months before being released. "These days itst the darkest days of my life, and now it 's the happiest time for me that I am free and come here without fear. "
Some of the Taliban who now guard the site are former detainees. Government guards have fled and do not dare to return, fearing reprisals.
Although the facility remains largely empty, one section is holding around 60 people jailed in recent weeks, most of whom the guards said were charged with felons and drug addicts.
