After President Joe Biden’s promise of a full military withdrawal by Sept. 11, the White House remains silent whether US special operations troops would remain in Afghanistan. According to White House press secretary Jen Psaki, they will assess in the coming months if the troops need to stay a little longer or will leave the country as agreed. All troops were supposed to leave Afghanistan by May 1st until it was extended until Sept. 11th. “I will say that we may, we will have what is needed to secure a diplomatic presence, and those assessments will be made over the coming months and obviously led by the Defense Department and State Department,” Psaki commented.
