Trump says Afghanistan exit was developed by 'child's mind'
 
Washington, Sep 30 (UNI) Former US President Donald Trump has again blasted President Joe Biden's chaotic exit from Afghanistan, saying the withdrawal plan “was developed by a child’s mind, and only the Biden Administration is responsible for it”.

'The botched and embarrassingly incompetent withdrawal from Afghanistan had nothing to do with past administrations or things that happened 'from 20 years ago,' (other than we should not have been in the Middle East in the first place!).' Trump said in a statement on Tuesday.

'The horrible 'withdrawal' was caused, in particular, because the military was taken out before American citizens, and $85 Billion worth of the highest-grade military equipment anywhere in the world.'

“This withdrawal was developed by a child's mind, and only the Biden administration is responsible for it,' his statement said.

'When I left office, the Taliban was held at bay, we had as long as we wanted, there was no reason to rush, no soldiers were killed or even shot at for over 18 months, and if they (the Taliban) didn't meet certain conditions, we would have hit them very hard.

'But then Biden and Milley ((Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley) removed the Military in one of the dumbest Military moves in history, and it all began. So sad for our Nation!'

Trump's statement came on the day that Milley and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Milley said that the Taliban takeover of the country on August 15, and the ensuing chaotic evacuation of more than 120,000 U.S. citizens, other foreign nationals and Afghan refugees out of the country, was not on the terms the United States wanted.

'It is clear, it is obvious, the war in Afghanistan didn't end on the terms we wanted,' Milley said, 'With the Taliban now in power, in Kabul.'

Milley said the rushed evacuations came at 'an incredible cost': the deaths of 13 U.S. military personnel in a suicide attack at Kabul airport on August 26, claimed by the Islamic State-Khorasan terror outfit.
