US and allied forces ‘didn’t have a clear idea’ about how to stabilise Afghanistan

Australian Strategic Policy Institute’s Peter Jennings says the United States and allied countries "didn’t have a clear idea" about how to stabilise Afghanistan.

“It’s one thing to fight an enemy, it’s entirely another thing to try and build a society to make it possible for you to then withdraw your forces,” Mr Jennings told Sky News host Catherine McGregor.

“Joe Biden did not look to have a thought through policy shared by the rest of the American National Security community about how to do this.

“He just had an emotional view that what was needed was that American forces had to get out and get out as quickly as possible.”
