Must Read

According to Afghan military officials, the US abandoned Afghanistan’s Bagram Airfield after nearly 20 years by turning out the lights and sneaking away in the night without telling the facility’s new Afghan commander, who learned the Americans’ absence more than two hours after they fled. The enormous airbase was shown off by Afghanistan’s army on Monday, allowing a rare first look at what had been the epicenter of America’s struggle to depose the Taliban and track down al-9/11 Qaida’s hijackers. The US declared on Friday that it has totally departed its largest airfield in the country, ahead of a final pullout scheduled for the end of August, according to the Pentagon.
