USA , Withdrawal of Troops

President Biden says he has no regrets about his decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan and end the longest war in U.S. history. "I stand squarely behind my decision," he says, adding that he would not "shrink from my share of responsibility for where we are today". He highlighted that despite providing Afghanistan with ample supplies and support for over two decades, the Afghan military failed in being a force capable of securing its own country. The Taliban cemented their control of Afghanistan on Monday, with scenes of handoffs to insurgent fighters playing out across the country and reports that the Taliban were searching for people they considered collaborators of the Americans and the fallen government.
