Goodbye Afghanistan – After nearly 20 years, last US Troops leave Kabul
VOA says almost 20 years after the United States sent forces into Afghanistan to go after the terrorists who planned the September 11, 2001, attacks, U.S. troops have left the country for a final time.
The head of U.S. Central Command announced the end of the U.S. mission to Afghanistan during a news conference Monday at the Pentagon, telling reporters the last U.S. aircraft took off in Kabul just before midnight local time, a minute ahead of U.S. President Joe Biden’s deadline for completing the withdrawal.
