Biden to pull U.S. Afghanistan troops by 9/11
US President Joe Biden plans to withdraw the remaining US troops from Afghanistan by September 11th.
That is exactly 20 years after the September 11th attacks by Al Qaeda on the United States, which sparked America's longest war.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the postponement, which President Biden would announce on Wednesday, reflected changing priorities.

"The President agreed that there is no military solution for Afghanistan ... He also believes that we need to focus our resources on combating the threats we face today, 20 years, almost 20 years after the war began. "
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin are also expected to announce the decision to NATO allies in Brussels on Wednesday.
The plan was announced on the same day that US intelligence agencies released a gloomy outlook for Afghanistan and predicted "slim" chances for a peace deal this year.
There are currently about 2,500 US soldiers in Afghanistan, up from a high of more than 100,000 in 2011. About 2,400 US soldiers were killed and many thousands more injured while on duty.
Biden's decision would miss a May 1 withdrawal deadline agreed by former President Donald Trump's administration with Taliban insurgents.
In a statement last month, the Taliban threatened to resume hostilities against foreign troops in Afghanistan if they failed to meet the May 1 deadline.
A US official told Reuters that the withdrawal would not be subject to any additional conditions. A "state-based approach" is a "recipe" for an "eternal" stay in Afghanistan.
