The Biden administration promised to bring every American home. They failed. They broke a long-standing creed of honor from our U.S. military, never leaving a man behind. Biden broke his promise and left Americans behind in Afghanistan. Biden left thousands of Americans and our Afghan allies with green cards to fend for themselves. God help them all. Biden owns his Afghanistan withdrawal debacle. Biden set the withdrawal date for political gain so he could take a victory lap on the anniversary of 9/11.

Our enlisted personnel on the ground made us all proud. They did an outstanding job under very difficult circumstances they never should have been placed in. They were given the task to defend a civilian airport encircled by fanatical terrorists. Thirteen brave Americans paid the ultimate sacrifice for our leadership’s incompetence. That is an unforgivable disgrace. My heart breaks for all those Gold Star families.

It was Biden and his military leaders who decided to close Bagram Air Force Base in the middle of the night. This left the only evacuation point to be the civilian airport in Kabul. They choose a commercial airport surrounded by over 4.5 million people. These geniuses decided to use a civilian airport surrounded by 4.5 million people and to close a hardened air force base that would be easy to defend. Our generals left $86 billion in military weaponry to arm our enemies. The Biden administration failed to evacuate thousands of terrorists in Afghan prisons. The Taliban released these terrorists and now they are resuming the bloody jihad against the infidels. It was the Biden team who pulled out the troops before evacuating the civilians. This left thousands of Americans stranded behind enemy lines. Lastly, the Biden administration’s messaging has been atrocious. Baghdad Bob would be proud of Jen Psaki. She claimed the Biden administration was doing everything in their power to prevent terrorist attacks. If you have read everything above this sentence, you can see how well they are doing.
