Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issued a stern warning to President Joe Biden over the weekend.
Although Biden and the White House have delayed the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan — the official pull out date is Sept. 11 — Hillary still isn’t happy.

Hillary said there will be grave consequences waiting for Biden when the dust settles.
When asked on CNN about the withdrawal, she explained that the fallout is going to cause the White House a headache or two.
She is against leaving, and said that two problems will arise:
- Deserting Afghanistan could lead to a “Taliban-run” government in the Middle East.
- A surge of illegal immigrant outflow could develop from a destabilized region.
“It’s one thing to pull out troops that have been supporting security in Afghanistan,” she told CNN, “supporting the Afghan military, leaving it pretty much to fend for itself, but we can’t afford to walk away from the consequences of that decision.”
Biden — who is already knee-deep in the U.S.-Mexico border crisis — can’t afford to have another mess on his hands.
But Hillary said that the U.S. involvement in the Afghanistan conflict must continue.
“There will also be, I fear, a huge refugee outflow.”
And she’s also hoping that the U.S. takes responsibility for processing potential immigrants hoping to flee Afghanistan.
“I hope that the administration in concert with the Congress will have a very large visa program and will begin immediately to try to provide that channel for so many Afghans to utilize so that they are not left in danger.”[Sponsored] Widen Arteries 24% In Just 21 Days (Study Inside)
Had former President Donald Trump remained in office, the troop withdrawal would have been completely finished by May 1.
Instead, the final phase of leaving the “Forever War” has just begun.
A Brown University study estimates that the U.S. has spent $2 trillion on the war.
New York Post reports that America has suffered 2,442 deaths due to the war.
