Pres. Biden will complete Trump’s Afghanistan troop withdrawal

President Joe Biden is not going to meet the May 1st deadline to withdraw America’s remaining troops from Afghanistan. But, surprisingly, Biden is going to follow through with the withdrawal, a move initiated by the Trump administration.

According to Breitbart, the Biden administration has announced that it will have all of America’s troops withdrawn from Afghanistan by September 11th. 

September 11th, of course, is a significant day as it is the anniversary of the start of the war. This year, in fact, is the 20th anniversary.

It’s happening

The withdrawal announcement was made to reporters by a senior administration official on Tuesday.

“After a rigorous policy review, President [Joe] Biden has decided to draw down the remaining U.S. troops from Afghanistan and finally end the U.S. war there after 20 years,” the official said.

The official added, “we will begin an orderly drawdown of the remaining forces before May 1st and plan to have all U.S. troops out of the country before the 20th anniversary of 9/11.”

In the statement, the official touched upon why it is that Biden made this decision.

“We went to Afghanistan to deliver justice to those who attacked us on September 11th and to disrupt terrorists seeking to use Afghanistan as a safe haven to attack the United States,” the official said. “We believe we achieved that objective some years ago. We judge the threat against the homeland now emanating from Afghanistan to be at a level that we can address it without a persistent military footprint in the country and without remaining at war with the Taliban.”

Background

This decision is a particularly surprising one. This is because the withdrawal is a continuation of a Trump administration policy.

Former President Donald Trump, before leaving office, entered into an agreement with the Taliban to have America’s remaining troops withdrawn from Afghanistan by May 1, 2021. Trump had already reduced America’s troop presence in the country to 2,500.

The Biden administration had indicated that it would likely not meet that May 1st deadline “for tactical reasons.”

The official emphasized on Tuesday that it would continue to watch for terrorist threats, and, in particular, the resurgence of al Qaeda. One of the main criticisms of the withdrawal is that it could allow for the resurgence of terrorist groups.

  9. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    and design. Excellent choice of colors!

    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
    with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no
    coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
