When announcing this historic decision last month, President Biden underscored that the United States has achieved its primary objective for launching Operation Enduring Freedom in 2001, 'to ensure Afghanistan would not be used as a base from which to attack our homeland once again.' I certainly share President Biden's desire to bring a responsible end to America's longest war."
