    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Thursday predicted that the Taliban could overrun the Afghan government by the end of the year as U.S. troops withdraw. “I think there's a high likelihood that the Taliban will be back in control of the country, maybe as early as the end of the year,” McConnell told reporters in Kentucky. McConnell has previously bashed President Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan as a “grave mistake” that will “leave coalition partners and vulnerable Afghans high and dry,” but his comments Thursday put a specific marker on the dire predictions. Some lawmakers and military officials, including...

Sarah Halimi’s sister, Esther Lekover, is an Israeli. “We regret that the situation has come to...

    On Wednesday President Joe Biden announced that the US would fully withdraw from Afghanistan no later than Sept. 11, 2021 — the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. For nearly a decade, three successive presidential administrations have been grappling with how exactly to end America’s longest war. Each time a plan is announced, the end date comes and goes with Americans still deploying, fighting, killing, and dying. First, in 2011 then-President Barack Obama announced that his administration would begin removing US troops at the end of the 2012 “fighting season,” fully hand over combat operations to the Afghans by 2013,...

    Today, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) reintroduced the American Forces Going Home After Noble (AFGHAN) Service Act to end America’s longest war and provide bonuses to those who have deployed in support of the Global War on Terrorism. This legislation also empowers America to redirect the savings from ending nation-building in Afghanistan to the country’s needs at home. The United States has been at war in Afghanistan since October 2001, where it has cost $2 trillion. We completed our mission long ago, Osama Bin Laden was killed in 2011, and Al Qaeda is all but eliminated from Afghanistan. Meanwhile, there...
