Helen Clark has described the chaos unfolding in Afghanistan as “one of the lowest points of Western foreign policy in decades”, Newshub reports. After being Prime Minister, Clark took on a leading role at the United Nations – serving as administrator of the UNDP for eight years. In that time, she said that, despite being driven out of power, the intelligence she received suggested the Taliban “never actually went away. I think it’s a huge underestimation of their capacity to take the country back that has brought us to this point.”
