Senate Armed Services to hold first hearing on Biden Afghanistan withdrawal


The Senate Armed Services Committee announced its first public hearing on the Biden Administration’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, with top officials slated to testify before the panel on Sept. 28. 

The hearing comes as the administration has faced a slew of bipartisan criticisms over the exit, with members on both sides of the aisle raising concerns over national security, the safety of Americans and Afghan allies left behind and the humanitarian implications that have resulted in the wake of the swift Taliban takeover.

Questions have been raised over why the Biden administration did not heed warnings from the intelligence community that the Afghan government was at high risk of falling to the Taliban without the support of U.S. troops and why they opted to leave the Bagram Airfield before all Americans were evacuated.
