Former US President Bush: Withdrawal is 'Mistake'

Former US president George W. Bush on Wednesday criticized the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan and said civilians were being left to be “slaughtered” by the Taliban.
“I think the consequences are going to be unbelievably bad,” he told German broadcaster, Deutsche Welle.
“Afghan women and girls are going to suffer unspeakable harm. This is a mistake. … They’re just going to be left behind to be slaughtered by these very brutal people, and it breaks my heart,” he said.
In April this year, US President Joe Biden announced that American troops will leave Afghanistan by September 11.
NATO also announced that it would follow Biden’s announcement. Most of the 2,500 US and 7,500 NATO troops who were in Afghanistan before President Biden’s announcement have since left Afghanistan.
Following Biden’s announcement, the Taliban has escalated their attack across Afghanistan and dozens of districts have fallen to the group.
