President Biden Again ‘Makes No Apologies For’ Afghanistan Withdrawal

The Week: Biden defiantly defends Afghanistan exit: 'I make no apologies for what I did' 

President Biden held a press conference on Wednesday, marking the end of his first year in office, and offered a firm defense of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. 

"I make no apologies for what I did," Biden told reporters. 

His administration drew scrutiny for withdrawing troops from Afghanistan in August, only for the Taliban to rapidly take control of the country, with some critics arguing the U.S. should have known how quickly the government would fall without American support. 

But Biden suggested Wednesday there was nothing else that could have been done to bolster Afghan allies.
