Merkel party chief calls Afghanistan pullout 'biggest NATO debacle' since its founding

The head of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's CDU party has called the withdrawal of Western troops from Afghanistan the "biggest NATO debacle" since the founding of the US-led military alliance.

“With the Taliban sweeping to power after NATO troops withdrew, it is evident that this engagement of the international community was not successful,” Armin Laschet said at a closed-door meeting of Germany’s Christian Democrat party on Monday.

“It is the biggest debacle that NATO has suffered since its founding, and we're standing before an epochal change."
