Manner of Afghanistan withdrawal has ‘damaged’ the United States

A lot of damage has been done to the international standing of the United States and Joe Biden, according to the Australian Strategic Policy Institute’s Peter Jennings.

"Not simply because of the decision to withdraw … but the way that it was done," Mr Jennings told Sky News host Peta Credlin.

"And in particular the very flat-footed, shell-shocked way that the US has been dealing with this situation over the last week or so.

"This has damaged the United States."
