Biden expected to decide in 24 hours whether to extend withdrawal past 31 August

The Guardian says President Joe Biden is expected to decide within 24 hours whether to extend the 31 August Afghanistan withdrawal deadline in order to give the Pentagon time to prepare, an administration official told Reuters on Monday.

Biden was still mulling how to proceed but some of his advisers were arguing against extending the withdrawal deadline for security reasons, the official said. Biden could signal his intentions at a virtual meeting of G7 nations on Tuesday, the official said
