State Department IG launches probe of Biden’s botched Afghan withdrawal: report

The State Department’s acting inspector general informed lawmakers Monday that her office is investigating several aspects of the Afghanistan withdrawal fiasco, NBC News reported.

The probe will include the thousands of US allies believed to have been left behind in Taliban-controlled territory.

The IG, Diana Shaw, told the heads of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, House Foreign Affairs Committee, and the House and Senate intelligence committees that her probe will focus on issues including the State Department’s Special Immigrant Visa program, the processing and resettlement of Afghans in the US and the evacuation of the American Embassy in Kabul as the Taliban approached the Afghan capital in mid-August.
