U.S. left Afghanistan

One year after President Biden announced the end of America’s war in Afghanistan, the administration has yet to release its after-action reports on the end of the U.S. military presence in the country and its chaotic non-combatant evacuation after President Ashraf Ghani’s government collapsed and the country fell to the Taliban. 

The reports coming from both the Defense and State departments, which will examine the period between February 2020 and  the U.S. withdrawal in August 2021, have been done for weeks but are still going through review and declassification.

Though the contents and conclusion of the reports are unknown, and it remains unclear if they will be released—all or in part—publicly, officials within the administration admit that there is very legitimate criticism of the planning for the U.S. withdrawal having come too late, particularly by the State Department.
