    How Chaos In Afghanistan Emboldened Terrorism

    Chaos in Afghanistan erupted as President Biden withdrew military forces leading to a forceful takeover by the Taliban. Today, August 17th, we will dive into one of the greatest foreign policy debacles in modern history. Good afternoon, I’m Ethan Kim, and this is the Outspoken Oppa.

    Background Reading:


    In mid-April, President Biden announced the immediate withdrawal of all American troops by September 11.
    On August 15th, the Taliban took over the capital of Kabul, effectively toppling Afghanistan's government.
    Later, Afghan President Ghani fled the country right before Taliban leadership stormed the presidential palace.
    Simultaneously, thousands of Afghan citizens fled to Kabul International Airport to escape the Taliban.
    On August 16th, President Joe Biden addressed the nation after Afghanistan fell to the Taliban

    Within this podcast episode, we dissect Biden's address to the nation and evaluate his withdrawal from Afghanistan.
