Taliban Just Sent Direct Threat To Biden

A state­ment from the Afghan jihadist orga­ni­za­tion the Tal­iban con­demned Pres­i­dent Joe Biden on Thurs­day for delay­ing the with­draw­al of Amer­i­can troops from the coun­try, not­ing the admin­is­tra­tion of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump agreed to leave the coun­try by May 1, but Biden would keep troops there for anoth­er four months.

In remarks on Wednes­day, Biden announced that all U. S. troops would leave Afghanistan by Sep­tem­ber 11, 2021, the 20th anniver­sary of the al-Qae­da attacks on the Amer­i­can home­land that ini­tial­ly prompt­ed Pres­i­dent George W. Bush to invade the coun­try. The Tal­iban has close ties to al-Qae­da and Amer­i­can intel­li­gence offi­cials believed al-Qae­da head Osama bin Laden may be hid­ing in Afghanistan at the time; U.S. forces ulti­mate­ly found him in neigh­bor­ing Pakistan.

Biden pre­sent­ed the with­draw­al as a dec­la­ra­tion he believed the war had gone on too long, with­out open­ly address­ing that, had he not changed the dead­line, U. S. troops would have left Afghanistan by May 1. In late 2020, for­mer Sec­re­tary of State Mike Pom­peo trav­eled to Doha, Qatar, to meet Tal­iban lead­ers in talks that result­ed in an agree­ment: if the Tal­iban cut ties to inter­na­tion­al ter­ror­ist groups and stopped attack­ing U.S. forces, Amer­i­ca would with­draw its troops by May 1.
