Biden plans to stick to August 31 Afghanistan withdrawal deadline


Despite pleas from allies at a G7 meeting, President Biden says he is sticking with the August 31 deadline for U.S. forces to leave Afghanistan. His remarks come after a secret meeting between the CIA director and a top Taliban leader. The Taliban threatened “consequences” if the U.S. doesn’t stick to the deadline.
