Last US troops leave Bagram Airfield in the night
... without telling the new Afghan commander.
The base, about an hour away from Kabul, has made headlines over the years for horrible accounts of the US forces there torturing Afghanis, sometimes to death.
The Afghan soldiers now guarding the base have said they look to the government and the village to support them with resources. 'the Americans destroyed everything here.' Much of the supplies (boots, exercise machines - The Americans took their sophisticated modern military tools) left by the troops has made it's way to scrapyards and second-hand shops.
Some have said they are glad the Americans left, that now Afghanistan can have peace, which the Americans didn't bring.
