U.S. Senator John Cornyn is calling the collapse of Afghanistan an unforced error. The Texas Republican says the Biden administration made a major mistake in letting the Taliban know when the military would leave Afghanistan.
Cornyn also says the U.S. should have provided more transitional support to Afghan partners to avoid a power vacuum. He believes all of the interpreters who worked with the military over the past 20 years will be slaughtered by the Taliban. Top Afghanistan politicians fled the country as the Taliban taking over cities.
