Leaked Memo Reveals Biden Administration’s Last Minute Scramble On Afghanistan Withdrawal
(Worthy News) – Newly leaked notes made during a White House Situation Room meeting as Taliban fighters gathered outside of Kabul, Afghanistan highlight the Biden administration’s lack of preparedness to deal with the ensuing evacuations.
