President Biden plans to remove all American troops from Afghanistan by September 11, a senior defense official confirmed to Fox News.
If that happens, that would mean that all American forces will be out of the country by the 20th anniversary of the Al Qaeda attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The president will make official remarks on the plans on Wednesday.
The Trump administration had aimed to have all American forces out of Afghanistan, where the Taliban retains significant power, by May 1, if certain conditions in its negotiations with the Taliban were met. But with just more than two weeks until that deadline, it is being pushed back again.
