Maybe this is why his aides were trying to drag him away.
Beto O'Rourke was pressed by a self-identified Afghanistan veteran on his policy for withdrawing troops at a campaign event in South Carolina.
The former congressman from Texas said that under his administration, there would be an understanding that the U.S. is not capable of determining the internal affairs of another nation and that he would pull out U.S. troops after Afghanistan without hesitation.
The Vet follows up: But we're already there, how do you get us out of there and not have the country go to hell?
Beto just repeats the lib platitudes on foreign policy and is whisked away by aides.
WATCH: No idea.
