The White House continues to defend the withdrawal of remaining U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan told reporters there were no good options for a final withdrawal. He added, “What has unfolded over the past month has proven decisively that it would’ve taken a significant American troop presence to stop a Taliban onslaught, and we would’ve taken casualties.” He acknowledged the ongoing chaos and praised the U.S. military for making necessary adjustments to secure the airport in Kabul.
