President Biden addresses the nation after the U.S. completed its withdrawal from Afghanistan, ending America's longest war. More than 123,000 civilians were flown out by the U.S. and its partners as part of the evacuation efforts, and all U.S. service members are now out of the country.

President Biden's address was slated to begin at 2:45 p.m. (8/31) - however it could start later.
