The Pentagon says it has begun the first stages of its withdrawal from Afghanistan and will gradually turn over control of U.S. military bases to Afghan forces. Sunday’s announcement by Army General Scott Miller came as the Taliban reiterated its call for all foreign forces to leave Afghanistan by May 1 — the deadline agreed to by the Trump administration during peace talks in 2020. Earlier this month, President Biden rolled back the U.S. withdrawal to September 11, the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
