Final US troops skulk out of Bagram amid news blackout as officials express fears Biden's 'gut' decision to withdraw soldiers from Afghanistan could cause violence to erupt and a gloating Taliban announces it 'welcomes' the move

US defense officials confirmed all US troops have left Bagram Airbase

The base served as a linchpin for US operations for almost two decades of war

It was the site of a number of deadly Taliban attacks over the last 20 years

Sources said it has now been handed over to Afghan National Security and Defence Forces

President Biden has vowed to have every US soldier out of Afghanistan by September 11

One insider told CNN it was a 'gut decision' on Biden's behalf; some experts fear it could cause new violence to erupt across Afghanistan
