The Pentagon which built up a force of nearly 6,000 troops to occupy and operate the airport when the airlift began on August 14 left behind 70 MRAP armoured tactical vehicles that it disabled before leaving, he said. McKenzie further said that they elected to keep those systems in operation up until the very last minute before the last US aircraft left.
