Biden Defends Withdrawal of U.S. Troops From Afghanistan

(Washington, DC) -- President Biden is defending his withdrawal of remaining U.S. troops from Afghanistan.  

Biden said the U.S. mission in Afghanistan was never supposed to be 20-years of "nation building." The President acknowledged that the crisis unfolded more quickly than anticipated.  

He added, "American troops cannot and should not be fighting in a war and dying in a war that Afghan forces are not willing to fight themselves."
