“The President's decision to end the war in Afghanistan was the right one,” Kirby said during a press briefing Thursday. "The United States had long ago accomplished its mission to remove from the battlefield the terrorists who attacked us on 9/11."

The White House released a document Thursday that blamed the Trump administration for setting the stage for the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan by lowering U.S. troop levels there and negotiating with the Taliban without consulting allies or the Afghan government.
