The world is stuck on developments in Afghanistan. While the Taliban took control of the entire country in 10 days, the US administration was helpless, so to speak.
Washington, which ordered its diplomats in Kabul to “destroy all documents”, first moved its staff to the airport and then evacuated them.
The framework of the meeting, where US President Biden followed all these developments, reveals the shock suffered by Washington.
According to a written statement from the White House, Biden, who is still at Camp David, spoke by video conference with numerous people, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, chief of General Staff Mark Milley and CIA Director William Burns. .
During the meeting, Biden discussed the latest developments in Afghanistan with the National Security Team and received a full briefing on the operation to evacuate Americans and Afghans who are supporting the United States from the country to the embassy in Kabul and the region.
In his statement yesterday, Biden said he had increased the number of troops sent to the country to evacuate Americans to Kabul to 5,000. He then decides to send 1000 additional soldiers for this mission.

THAT WAS THE TARGET FOR REACTIONS.
The image of Biden taken at that meeting quickly became the country’s number one agenda. Much criticism has been leveled at Biden, who has been seen to be extremely tired, especially on social media.
THE TALIBAN PROCESS TO DOMINATE AFGHANISTAN
As part of the peace agreement reached between the United States and the Taliban in February 2020, the process of withdrawing international forces from Afghanistan began this year.
While the agreement stipulated not to attack foreign forces, it made no provision regarding the actions of the Taliban against the Afghan security forces.
Continuing negotiations with the Afghan government in Doha, the Taliban have simultaneously seized many districts and provincial centers in Afghanistan with heavy attacks since June.
Besieging the capital Kabul, the Taliban began to penetrate the suburbs and called on the government to peacefully take over the administration and the capital.
After President Ashraf Ghani left the country and government forces left the capital, the Taliban began to take full control of the city.
