Top Democrat Senator Bob Menendez has blasted Secretary of State Antony Blinken for the United State’s “fatally flawed” withdrawal from Afghanistan during a committee hearing into the botched evacuations last month.

Senators have blasted Mr Blinken during a fiery hearing over the US withdrawal with one Democrat senator threatening to subpoena Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin if he did not agree to testify.

Testifying for the second day in a row, the secretary of state defended President Joe Biden and his handling of the withdrawal.

However, Mr Blinken was forced to admit he didn’t know who was actually killed in the US drone strike in Kabul which caused the deaths of ten people.
