“Based on military, diplomatic and intelligence recommendations, I have authorised the deployment of some 5,000 US troops to ensure the safe drawdown of US personnel and our allies, and the safe evacuation of Afghans who helped us during the mission and those at risk from Taliban advance”, –  Biden said in a statement.
