TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -The last U.S. troops left Afghanistan Monday afternoon, but Mann says the chaos of the past two weeks shows the deadline was not realistic.

Mann says if there is any silver lining it is that our brave men and woman have done such a good job.

But, he is concerned about Americans left behind. Mann says anyone still in Afghanistan will not be out of danger until they are back home.

“We have reports of Americans trying to get to the airports, people with American passports that are being harassed by the Taliban and are being turned away and I am very very concerned about what we are seeing right now,” Mann said.
