Afghanistan’s withdrawal should make us ‘hang our heads in shame’

Anti-insurgency expert David Kilcullen says the way the withdrawal from Afghanistan was handled should make some people hang their heads in shame.

After the withdrawal, there was a rush to blame the Afghan military for not fighting the Taliban, according to Global Focus host Christopher Pyne.

“I consider blaming the Afghans for A, giving the buck and B, a rather nauseating victim-blame,” Kilcullen told Sky News Australia.

“Whether or not you think it was the right decision to withdraw, I think the way we did it should make us all hang our heads in shame.”
