The result of U.S. occupation that began in 2001 in Afghanistan

The Taliban has captured three more provincial capitals. Nine of Afghanistan’s 34 provincial capitals are now under Taliban control, following a sweeping offensive. Earlier today, Afghanistan’s acting finance minister resigned and fled the country, after the Taliban captured key customs posts, stripping the government of a critical source of revenue. The Taliban now controls most of Afghanistan’s borders with Tajikistan and Uzbekistan in the north. This all comes as the United States is withdrawing troops after nearly 20 years of the longest U.S. war, the War in Afghanistan.
