Film star Angelina Jolie shared her disappointment with President Joe Biden’s actions in Afghanistan in a Time op-ed, calling the botched military pullout “sickening” and “a betrayal and a failure impossible to fully understand.”
“Whatever your views on the war in Afghanistan, we probably agree on one thing: it should not have ended this way,” she wrote, adding that she was “ashamed” of U.S. action under Biden, which led to the Taliban taking over the government even before the U.S. military pullout was complete.

Jolie also created an Instagram profile to share stories of Afghans who she said didn’t have a voice in the current crisis.
