President Biden speech after last troops leave Afghanistn

The US president warned that the threat of overseas terrorism is “metastasizing” in many parts of the world. But that the US would continue to combat such terrorism without continuing a ground war in Afghanistan.

“It was time to end this war,” Joe Biden said, in an address from the state dining room at the White House.

“We will continue to support the Afghan people through diplomacy and engagement,” he said. He also again promoted the US ability to fight a war from “over the horizon” - drones and munitions launched from remote bases.

Biden a few moments ago said he took responsibility for the way the US withdrew from Afghanistan, which was dramatic, lethal, chaotic, frustrating and tragic for those left behind.
