Former Prime Minister Tony Blair was amongst those criticising leadership across the pond.
Mr Blair, who followed the US to Afghanistan and Iraq in 2001 and 2003, was also quick to criticise Mr Biden.
The Labour figure, who has maintained one foot in politics since stepping down, branded Mr Biden’s decision “imbecilic”.
He said that while he had “enormous respect” for the US President, the withdrawal was a “serious mistake”.
He added: “You look round the world, and the only people really cheering this decision are the people hostile to Western interests.”
