Senator Rounds calls out President Biden for the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan

WASHINGTON, D.C.(KCCR)- The last U-S armed forces left Afghanistan Monday following a 20 year war on terrorism after the September 11th 2001 attacks on the United States.  South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds says the sudden call by President Joe Biden to withdraw troops had been hinted by history.

Rounds serves on the Foreign Affairs and Armed Services Committees and says members aren’t surprised by the withdrawal.

Rounds fears for Afghanis left to live under Taliban rule.

Rounds says he hasn’t had classified conversations with officials about what if anything the U-S did to de-militarize billions of dolllars worth of military equipment and arms left behind by the rapid month-long reduction in U-S military forces in Afghanistan.
