"They thought they could use the attack to show strength, but actually what they showed is weakness", Trump said.

Trump has called their continued presence there "ridiculous".

But what is known is the dramatic escalation in attacks and bombings in Kabul and elsewhere in Afghanistan by the Taliban that rattled not only the Ashraf Ghani-led unity government but also caused fear and anxiety among the people hoping for peace in their war-torn country. "We have fresh forces in the area and soon the districts will be recaptured", said Jawad Hejri, a spokesman for the Takhar provincial governor. A USA -led invasion of Afghanistan shortly after the 2001 attack toppled the Taliban, who had harbored Osama bin Laden, the al-Qaida leader and attacks mastermind.

In the almost 18 years of fighting since then, the number of USA troops in Afghanistan soared to 100,000 and dropped dramatically after bin Laden was killed in neighbouring Pakistan in 2011. A couple of phone calls confirmed that a rocket had blown up inside the compound of the U.S. Embassy.

"For the families who join us, this is your anniversary of personal and permanent loss", Trump said.

In a veiled reference to Pakistan, India has told the UN Security Council that the support and safe havens enjoyed by terror groups like the Taliban, the Haqqani Network, Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed from "beyond Afghanistan's borders" must be addressed to fight the scourge of terrorism and ensure peace in Afghanistan.

About 14,000 US soldiers remain in the country and Trump has called their ongoing deployment "ridiculous", including the many billions of dollars spent in the war.

Trump ousted National Security Advisor John Bolton on Monday, and Afghanistan was one of the key flashpoints between the men.

The president campaigned on a pledge to end the war in Afghanistan, but has pronounced the peace talks with the Taliban as now "dead". More than 2,400 American service members have been killed in the conflict. On Tuesday, U.S. military officials released video of American fighter jets dropping 80,000 pounds of bombs on an island in the Tigris River "infested" with Islamic State fighters.

"Rick died while leading countless others to safety", Trump said at a ceremony at the Pentagon on Wednesday. He made no public remarks, but shook hands with several people and embraced one woman, Lisa Dolan of Alexandria, Virginia, after she approached him.
