Labor MP Joel Fitzgibbon said Afghanistan national army wasn’t “sufficiently prepared” for the Taliban to launch an attack. “Having installed a new government, a democratically elected government, it all became about making sure that government had its best chance to survive to ensure that the Taliban did not take control of the country.

“We did our best by building an economy, training their security forces, giving them the chance to have some longevity but none of us could have imagined what a challenging task it was trying to build an Afghan national army and an Afghan national police. “We gave the people of Afghanistan every chance to live under a different regime in a democracy but in the end apparently they just didn’t want it enough and certainly the Afghan national army was not as sufficiently prepared to fight for it.”
