Poor planning by the U.S. military before the ‘abrupt’ Afghanistan withdrawal led to the rapid collapse of the Western-backed government as the Taliban overran the country in August 2021, a damning new watchdog report has said.
The scathing analysis by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) found the American decision to pull out ‘destroyed the morale’ of the Afghan National Security Force (ANDSF), and the 300,000 local troops were destined to fail without U.S. support.
It also details the more than $7 billion in weapons and equipment left for the Taliban to use, and the widespread corruption that dominated the Afghan military and government.
The withdrawal was ‘abrupt and uncoordinated’ and gave war-ravaged locals the impression that the U.S. was ‘simply handing Afghanistan over to a Taliban government-in-waiting’, it continued.
The report also criticized the failure to create ‘an independent and self-sustainable’ Afghan security force, despite 20 years and $90 billion of support from the U.S., and blamed both President Biden and President Trump for the bedlam.
