Pentagon prepares for possible Taliban attack

President Joe Biden’s decision to proceed with a final withdrawal, albeit delayed, adds a new element of security risk as the remaining 2,500 to 3,500 US troops, along with some 7,000 from the coalition and thousands of contractors , they begin to depart. Biden has said that all soldiers will be out by September 11, the date of the terrorist attacks that prompted the United States to invade Afghanistan.
