Blinken is also expected to appear before the House Foreign Affairs Committee for a similar hearing.
The Secretary of State’s testimony on the Afghanistan withdrawal will follow his September 5-8 trip to Doha, Qatar and Ramstein, Germany. The trip was touted by the State Department as an opportunity for Blinken to offer thanks to allies and partners.
The United States’ withdrawal from Afghanistan has been a complete disaster. Billions in weapons were handed over to the Taliban, Americans and Afghans were left behind, and several service members have died as a result.
