Shocking Defense Of Biden’s Afghan Actions From An Unlikely Source

In a stunning display of denial, Rep. Barbara Lee, a Democrat from California, has absolved President Biden of any blame for the disastrous withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan. During her appearance on CNN, Lee shamelessly shifted the responsibility to former President Donald Trump. But let’s set the record straight and expose the truth.

First and foremost, it was Biden who made the final decision to execute the withdrawal in such a hasty and reckless manner. While we all support the goal of leaving Afghanistan, the manner in which it was carried out was a complete disaster. President Biden failed to anticipate the rapid collapse of Afghan security forces and the swift takeover by the Taliban.

Furthermore, Lee conveniently overlooks the fact that it was the Trump administration that negotiated the agreement with the Taliban, not Biden. Yes, Trump initiated the peace talks, but it was Biden who had the power and responsibility to assess the situation and adjust the strategy accordingly. Instead, he chose to blindly follow through with a flawed plan without considering the potential consequences.

Lee also points fingers at the State Department and our diplomatic corps, accusing the Trump administration of gutting these institutions. However, the report published by the State Department itself reveals that both Trump and Biden failed to adequately consider worst-case scenarios and the potential for a rapid collapse in Afghanistan.

The consequences of this botched withdrawal are dire. Afghan civilians, particularly women and minorities, are now at the mercy of the oppressive Taliban regime. Our brave servicemen and women sacrificed their lives defending the evacuation at the Kabul airport, a tragedy that could have been avoided with proper planning and execution.

It is clear that President Biden’s administration is desperately trying to shift blame and avoid taking responsibility for their failures. But the American people deserve better than empty excuses and finger-pointing. We need leaders who are willing to own up to their mistakes and learn from them.

As Republicans, we must hold President Biden accountable for this disastrous withdrawal. We cannot allow incompetence and lack of foresight to jeopardize our national security and the lives of innocent people. It is time to demand transparency, accountability, and a thorough investigation into the decision-making process that led to this catastrophic failure.

We must also remember that actions have consequences. The world is watching, and our enemies are emboldened by our weakness. It is crucial that we restore American strength and leadership on the global stage, and that starts with holding President Biden and his administration accountable for their failures in Afghanistan.

Let us not forget the sacrifices made by our brave servicemen and women who fought valiantly in Afghanistan. Their dedication and bravery deserve better than a hasty and disastrous withdrawal. It is time to demand answers, demand accountability, and demand better leadership for the future of our great nation.
