Biden agrees with Taliban’s deadline

By Jenny Goldsberry

President Biden is doubling down on his decision to withdraw from Afghanistan, and will stick to the August 31st deadline. Meanwhile, there are reports of Americans still stranded in the country.

Sources from the ground confirmed to that the majority of troops will be out within 72 hours of this report.

Biden addressed the nation Sunday, assuring that he would stick to the deadline.

Then, on Monday a Taliban spokesman threatened Biden to keep his word. “This is something you can say it’s a red line,” the spokesman said. “It will deteriorate the relation. Will create mistrust between us.”

Currently there are just under 6,000 troops still in Afghanistan. It is unclear how many American citizens remain.
