Gen Frank McKenzie said the deal had a “really pernicious effect” on the Afghan government and military.

Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin agreed, saying the agreement had helped the Taliban get “stronger”.

In addition to setting a withdrawal date, the Doha agreement included
broad obligations on the Taliban to take steps to prevent groups such as
al-Qaeda from threatening the security of the US and its allies.
