Biden to announce withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan by September 11 1


President Joe Biden, having concluded there is no military solution to the security and political problems plaguing Afghanistan and determined to focus on more pressing national security challenges, will formally announce Wednesday that US troops will withdraw from the country before the 20th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks, a senior administration official said.
The withdrawal extends the US troop presence past a May 1 deadline set by the Trump administration in an agreement with the Taliban, but only by a matter of months.
Biden has been weighing the decision for months with his advisers and signaled he did not believe US troops should remain in the country long past the deadline.
The Washington Post was first to report the news.
The senior administration official said NATO troops would also follow the same withdrawal timeline. It's possible US troops will be withdrawn "well before" September 11, the official said, saying the date was the last possible time when remaining personnel would leave.

    Lol I’ll believe it when I see it. He’s gonna withdraw some, then send even more without announcing.

    • @M Hall prices going up is what happens when the economy gets back to normal.

      On the othe hand the increase started just days into Biden’s term, so if it’s bad, it’s due to what Trump did. If it’s good, then it’s the economy getting better, and if you’re in the spin game, we could say Biden owns ta recovery. But if you’re honest, things are a little more complicated.

    • @Ethan Baker if you’re referring to the initial comment, it was just an obvious general point about people not seeing the future, even due things they claim are obvious.

    • @Lando maybe it’s not, still thefuture is not as clear as the past, is it? If it were, we’d all win the lottery and decide it’s not a good idea we all win the lottery at once, after all.

    • @Ed Lopow it is technically a withdrawal no matter when it happens. The problem I understood – and it seems to be also confirmed in the material – the May term was the “take it or leave it” kind of term, while the new one tries to get the talibans at the negotiation table.

      Not sure if it will work, but having since agreement is better than trying to bully others when your only pressure card is military intervention while you try to get out.

    You know I almost forgot about this those guys been there too long September 11th that’s even longer why can’t you just bring them home now 🤔

    • Google the term “power vacuum”. Can’t believe you people get to vote on who has access to half of the planet’s nuclear arsenal

    • Because it takes time and dropping out would cause a power vacum and allow groups like the taliban to just esculate things again and were back where we started.

  11. Haha every 6 months! Right on time

  12. Omfg that’s too funny that it’s 20 years. What a perf #

    That’s news that big pharma don’t want to hear. Now they will have to go back into Mexico to get the opium they need to make oxycodone, percocets and their other opioid drugs.
