Two years after the "Doha Agreement" Republicans link Biden's weakness in the Ukraine war and the withdrawal from Afghanistan The controversy between Republicans and Democrats over responsibility for the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, which was described as a resounding scandal for America, did not stop, and the war in Ukraine - which coincides with the second anniversary of the signing of the Doha Agreement - ignited this controversy again.  Washington - Republicans took advantage of the Russian attack against Ukraine to direct more criticism of the administration of President Joe Biden, as Republicans blame him, and say that foreign policy mistakes, especially the catastrophic withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan, sent messages indicating the decline of American power, which is exploited by enemies Washington.  The advent of the second anniversary of the historic Doha agreement between the Taliban movement and the US government, which ended 20 years of the US occupation of Afghanistan, renews the debate over the identity of the party responsible for completing the US withdrawal in the chaotic and humiliating manner that the world witnessed last August.  The essence of the agreement signed on February 29, 2020 in Doha stipulated that Washington would withdraw all its forces, numbering at the time, 2,500 soldiers, from Afghanistan by May 2021 in exchange for a Taliban pledge not to allow "terrorist" groups to operate from the areas it controls.  Washington signed the Doha Agreement during the era of former President Donald Trump, and its basic provisions were implemented from the start of a gradual withdrawal of American and foreign forces before President Biden came to power.

While Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin blamed the Afghan government for the collapse of the Afghan army, with the Afghan army unprepared and reluctant to fight, Republicans and Democrats blamed each other for what happened in Afghanistan in recent days.  The Republicans adopt a position that relies on blaming President Joe Biden and his hasty decision to announce the withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan before the end of August 2021, while Democrats believe that the blame should be directed to former President Donald Trump and the Republicans, who reached an agreement with the Taliban in 2020 that stipulates Military withdrawal from Afghanistan before the end of May 2021.

Democrats believe that the peace agreement bartered withdrawal from Afghanistan with the start of negotiations between the Afghan parties, but it did not specify a possible peace and never created an effective peace process, and that Trump, by accepting the agreement, effectively lost Afghanistan. Democrats accused Trump of ignoring the inclusion of a comprehensive peace plan in the withdrawal deadline agreement.
