>> 2014 is in jeopardy after a meeting between susan rice and the afghan president . nbc's chief foreign correspondence richard engle joins us from afghanistan with the latest. good morning.

>> reporter: good morning, natalie. this is highly significant for the future of america's longest war and the future of afghanistan . susan rice was on this outpost meeting with u.s. commanders and then went to kabul for a dinner with president karzi. the dinner didn't go well. the united states has already said it is willing to commit annually billions of dollars to the afghan economy to support the afghan security forces and potentially keep thousands of troops in this country after 2014 . but karzi put new conditions. he said he won't sign the deal, at least not yet. he wants washington to help broker a deal with the taliban and said he won't sign it if a single american soldier enters another afghan home. this deal is in jeopardy and could mean no more american troops in afghanistan after 2014 , natalie.

>> tough situation on going there.
