US May Slow Pullout from Afghanistan

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby announced Monday that “The US military could slow down its withdrawal from Afghanistan due to the gains made by the Taliban insurgents.”
Kirby stressed that US President Joe Biden's deadline of a full withdrawal by September remains in place, but added that the pace could be adjusted based on conditions.

“The situation in Afghanistan changes as the Taliban continue to conduct these attacks and to raid district centers,” he told reporters.

Pentagon officials said last week that the withdrawal, ordered by Biden in April after nearly two decades fighting Al-Qaeda and helping government forces battle the Taliban, is around half completed.
