I look forward to hosting President Ghani and Chairman Abdullah at the White House this afternoon. As the U.S. military drawdown continues, we affirm our enduring support for the Afghan people.— President Biden (@POTUS) June 25, 2021
So much for the “withdrawal” from Afghanistan.
“WASHINGTON (AP) — Roughly 650 U.S. troops are expected to remain in Afghanistan to provide security for diplomats after the main American military force completes its withdrawal, which is set to be largely done in the next two weeks, U.S. officials told The Associated Press on Thursday.
In addition, several hundred additional American forces will remain at the Kabul airport, potentially until September, to assist Turkish troops providing security, as a temporary move until a more formal Turkey-led security operation is in place, the officials said. Overall, officials said the U.S. expects to have American and coalition military command, its leadership and most troops out by July Fourth, or shortly after that, meeting an aspirational deadline that commanders developed months ago.
The officials were not authorized to discuss details of the withdrawal and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity. …”
“John F. Kirby, the chief Defense Department spokesman, told reporters on Thursday that the Pentagon, the State Department and White House officials were still working out the details of the relocation effort. “We’re committed to helping this departure from Afghanistan,” he said.
The Pentagon has planning contingencies to evacuate as many as 100,000 people under such a program, using a combination of military and chartered civilian aircraft, but Mr. Kirby said he had not seen any number that high in the most recent internal discussion. …”
“President Donald Trump, Miller, Attorney General Bill Barr, and Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, were clashing over how to respond to the unrest, the book said, according to CNN.
During one debate in the Oval Office, Bender reportedly wrote, Miller said the protests reminded him of a war zone.
“These cities are burning,” Miller was quoted as saying.
Milley turned around in his seat, pointed his finger at Miller, and said, “Shut the f— up, Stephen,” the book reportedly says.
The Department of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment. …”
Invade the world. Invite the world. Never leave.
Twenty years later, the Pentagon now wants to import up to 100,000 Afghan refugees without even leaving Afghanistan. At the same time, Gen. Mark Milley wants to understand “White Rage” and DOES NOT believe in protecting Americans in their own country from violent mobs!
Note: Maybe the absurdity of this situation is the cause of “White Rage”?
