Upbeat Biden calls Kabul evacuation ‘EXTRAORDINARY SUCCESS’ in first speech since messy Afghanistan pullout ends

With the last US troops leaving Afghanistan after a devastating bombing, President Joe Biden has described the chaotic evacuation of Kabul as an “extraordinary success” the likes of which “no nation has done in all of history.”

“Last night in Kabul, the US ended 20 years of war in Afghanistan, the longest war in American history,” Biden told reporters on Tuesday, almost a day after the last US plane took off from Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul. 

The retreat from Afghanistan didn’t just mark an end to that war, he said, but an end to an era of military operations “to remake other countries.”
