(HorizonPost.com) – When President Joe Biden withdrew US troops from Afghanistan in August 2021, many people wondered how prepared he was for the extraction, given the chaos that ensued. If the new document allegedly from the White House, dated shortly before the withdrawal, is genuine, it suggests the current administration was still working on planning the civilian evacuation while the Taliban was rapidly taking over the country. According to Axios, the leaked notes show Biden and his administration hastily made critical decisions at the eleventh hour.

Representative Brian Mast (R-FL) took to YouTube to expose the documents and relay his thoughts regarding the administration’s lack of preparedness for the withdrawal from Afghanistan. According to Mast, he made repeated requests to see the plan but has yet to obtain any detailed strategy from the Biden administration. He thinks the alleged leaked document shows why, as well as the reason there was no defined plan.
So far, there has been no confirmation as to the authenticity of the document obtained exclusively by Axios. However, if it’s true, it would explain the messy withdrawal of American troops, which may have contributed to the death of 13 US service members and many Afghan allies during the process.
