Report: US Is Days From Completing Afghanistan ‘Withdrawal’ But Up to 1,000 Troops Could Remain

Several media outlets reported on Wednesday that the US is only days away from completing its Afghanistan “withdrawal,” but the plan involves keeping at least 650 troops in the country to guard the US embassy and help secure the Kabul airport.

One unnamed military official told CNN that the US could leave up to 1,000 troops in Afghanistan after the “formal withdrawal,” but another official insisted it wouldn’t be more than 650 troops.

The 650 number is what most outlets have reported. Initial reports said the US would leave the 650 for the embassy indefinitely, and another small force would stay until President Biden’s September 11th deadline to help Turkish troops secure the Kabul airport, which could explain the 1,000 number.
