The State Department’s inspector general has initiated a review of how the Biden administration withdrew from Afghanistan.

The watchdog, or the State OIG, told members of Congress that it notified the State Department of several “oversight projects” related to the ending of operations at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, according to a letter obtained and published by Politico.

The OIG is reviewing the Special Immigrant Visa program, which gives visas to Afghans who fit certain criteria; the Afghans admitted as refugees into the United States; the resettlement of both Afghan refugees and visa recipients; and the emergency planning and execution by the Kabul embassy, including how it evacuated U.S. citizens and Afghans.

Due to “the elevated interest in this work by Congress,” acting Inspector General Diana Shaw wrote, the OIG informed committees that have oversight of the State Department of the reviews.
