America’s longest war ends as U.S. troops leave Afghanistan
The last U.S. forces flew out of Kabul’s airport in Afghanistan bringing down the curtain on America’s longest war.
The last U.S. plane departed Afghanistan’s Hamid Karzai International Airport a few hours before dawn, marking the end of America’s longest war and leaving the country’s future in disarray and uncertainty under Taliban rule.
U.S. troops destroyed equipment before leaving Afghanistan, ending ending 20 years of military engagement in the country. More than 2,400 troops and tens of thousands of Afghans lost their lives.
