    Breaking: Clinton warns of “huge consequences” over Biden’s Afghanistan drawdown plan

    Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has warned of “huge consequences” over Joe Biden administration’s decision to withdraw American troops from war-ravaged Afghanistan.

    In an interview with CNN, Clinton said there are “two huge consequences,” that Washington should worry about: potential collapse of Kabul and Taliban’s takeover of the country, and the resumption of global terrorist activities.

    “Probably with a resumption of civil war in certain parts of the country, but a largely Taliban-run government at some point in the not-too-distant future,” she noted.

     

    “There will also be, I fear, a huge refugee outflow,” the former First Lady stressed. “And of course, the second big set of problems revolves around a resumption of activities by global terrorist groups, most particularly Al-Qaeda and Daesh.”

    On being asked what she thought of her fellow Democrat’s decision, Clinton said the decision “has been made”, and it is a “very difficult decision.”

    “This is what we call a wicked problem. You know there are consequences both foreseen and unintended of staying and of leaving. The president has made the decision to leave,” she said.

    “It’s one thing to pull out troops that have been supporting security in Afghanistan, supporting the Afghan military, leaving it pretty much to fend for itself, but we can’t afford to walk away from the consequences of that decision,” Clinton said.

    US and NATO troops began to withdraw from the war-torn country last week amid a sharp spike in Taliban attacks across the country.

    “NATO allies decided in mid-April to start the withdrawal of Resolute Support Mission forces by May 1 and this withdrawal has begun. This will be an orderly, coordinated, and deliberate process,” a NATO official said in a statement on Thursday.
