Former U.S. President George W. Bush called the decision to withdraw the U.S. contingent from Afghanistan a mistake. According to him, the consequences of such a move would be incredibly bad.

“I’m afraid that Afghan women and girls will be harmed in unspeakable ways,” the politician said. He also said he wasn’t sure about the safety of the interpreters who were helping the alliance military.

“They’re just going to be left to be killed by these very violent people. All of this breaks my heart.”
