Jack Reed: Biden made “the best of many bad decisions” in Afghanistan

Reed said Sunday if Biden approved the Trump administration’s plan to withdraw troops by 1. The United States. ”

“I think it set a fixed date instead of imposing conditions that would have left us out of Afghanistan,” he said. “In addition, most of the conditions for the Taliban were unenforceable. They claimed that they would distance themselves from al-Qaeda, that is clearly not the case. “

American troops have been in Afghanistan since 2001 when they marched in shortly after the September 11, 2001 attacks to overthrow the Taliban. While Biden has pushed back the notion that the withdrawal will result in the Taliban’s overthrow of the U.S.-backed government in Kabul, U.S. military leaders – including General Austin Miller, commander of the U.S.-led mission in Afghanistan – are warning of possible civil war in the country Withdrawal of US troops.

But Reed sided with Biden on the issue, saying he believed “Kabul will hold”, at least for now.

“The question is, can it last long enough to create a political solution between the sides?” said Reed.
