President Obama and his national security team are facing a number of security threats in the New Year.

From turmoil in Afghanistan to the growth of al Qaeda cells, defense and intelligence officials are grappling with a host of challenges.

Here are the top five threats facing the nation in 2014.

The Pentagon and Afghan President Hamid Karzai are at odds over the terms of a bilateral security agreement that would set the ground rules for U.S. forces after 2014.

U.S. officials pressed Karzai to ratify the pact by the end of 2013, but backed down over concerns that a deal might collapse.

President Obama is considering a complete withdrawal from Afghanistan, but many fear the “zero option” would lead to a repeat of Iraq, where the lack of U.S. forces allowed for a resurgence of al Qaeda and a wave sectarian violence against Iraqi forces and civilians.
