'Tragically, because of the Biden administration’s single-minded focus on the pullout date, hard-nosed intelligence was replaced with wishful thinking and false promises. In April, Secretary of State Antony Blinken vowed, “We will withdraw our troops responsibly, deliberately, safely. . . . We’ll pursue a durable and just political settlement between the government of Afghanistan and the Taliban.”

None of that happened. Last month Blinken assured us that Biden’s withdrawal plan wouldn’t endanger the US embassy in Kabul, which is now evacuated. And Biden himself declared last month that it was “highly unlikely” the Taliban would overrun Afghanistan, which they have now done with blinding speed.'

dOnald tRump went around the established government in Afghanistan, the government we spent 20 years, billions of dollars, and thousands of American lives setting up, and unconditionally surrendered to the Taliban.

Deal with it.

Two lies and one exaggeration from RWNJ sources change nothing. dOnald tRump engineered the unconditional surrender to the Taliban behind the Afghanistan government's back. The government we spent 20 years, billions of dollars, and thousands of lives setting up and supporting.

Why?

That's not true. Why did Joey Xi BAI Dung wait the last minute to begin the evacuation of those with Green cards and SIV groups when he had seven months to do so? Why did Milley order Bagram AFB evacuated by the military in the middle of the night leaving billions of dollars of military equipment including war dogs? Who gave the order to kill an aide worker and seven children?
No matter that you attempt to place the blame on Trump. Joey Xi had 7 months to complete the withdrawal safely and efficiently. He Did no and that cannot be blamed on the prior administration.

Excerpt from Aug 17th"
Don't Excuse Biden for His Botched Afghanistan Withdrawal
"Why, for example, 18,000 special immigrant visa (SIV) applications were languishing in a web of red tape far before the withdrawal began? That program was created by Congress to give an immigration pathway to Afghans—those who translated for U.S. soldiers and filled other critical roles in service to the Americans—knowing that they did so at risk of Taliban reprisal."
