Per President Biden’s order, the U.S. military has left Afghanistan. Also left behind, is 20 years’ worth of “things.” The Afghani military showed up on Monday at the airbase and found more than 100,000 items on the base. Most of the items are day-to-day items such as food, bottled water, and energy bars. But the U.S. military also left about 1,000 civilian vehicles and ammunition that can be used for short-range shootings. According to NPR, The Afghan military said that the U.S. military didn’t notify of their departure to the new Afghanistan’s base commander prior to leaving.

The Pentagon recently announced that all military from Afghanistan will withdraw by the end of August. The U.S. military in Bagram airbase, the biggest airfield in the country was so quickly vacated that much of their belongings were simply left behind when the new base commander arrived just after 2 hours. What the rush was about, no one knows at the moment.

“We [heard] some rumor that the Americans had left Bagram, and finally by seven o’clock in the morning, we understood that it was confirmed that they had already left Bagram,” General Mir Asadullah Kohistani, Bagram’s new commander said.
