US President Supports Hasty Withdrawal from Afghanistan
Kabul – The President of the United States Joe Biden has supported his government’s decision about the impulsive withdrawal from Afghanistan and rejected the report of the Washington Post on the criticism of many US military personnel regarding the sudden exit from the country.
On Thursday, February 10, a bunch of US military officials criticized the Biden administration for not handling the crisis in Afghanistan properly, the Washington Post reported.
In addition, the 2,000-page report, published by the Washington Post, contains dozens of interviews with US military officials involved in the evacuation process in the country.
The reports provided by the Washington Post on the evacuation process in the country in August, show US military frustration with White House officials and diplomats over the evacuation of the country.
According to the report, the evacuation of US embassy staff and Afghan military personnel by the Pentagon was initiated weeks before the fall of Kabul, but the plan was opposed by political officials.
However, in an interview with NBC, US President dismissed the Washington Post report, saying it contradicted what he perceived as his government’s performance in the evacuation process from Afghanistan.
“No, this is not what I was told,” Biden said. “There was no good time to leave, but if we did not go out, they would have to send more troops there again.”
On the other hand, the White House press secretary Jen Psaki said US officials did not anticipate Afghanistan falling so quickly.
Meanwhile, the remarks have come as hundreds of US military staff in Abu Dhabi protested against US recklessness in the transfer process.
