Ex-general: Afghanistan evacuation a ‘strategic failure’

On Tuesday, two retired army generals testified about the US withdrawal from Afghanistan in August 2021 to a Republican-led committee of Foreign Affairs.

General Mark Milley, the former chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff, called the US evacuation from Afghanistan a “strategic failure,” but defended US military actions under what were extremely “dangerous” circumstances.

The Afghanistan withdrawal in 2021 was the largest Non-combatant evacuation operation (NEO) in US history. US troops pulled out after 20 years in Afghanistan, and the final few weeks were deadly and chaotic as the Taliban swept to power.
