Biden attempted to dump the blame on Trump, noting that he had inherited an agreement that called for a U.S. withdrawal by May 1.
This was, indeed, a terrible deal — but the Taliban were not abiding by it, so Biden was not obligated to do so either. https://t.co/k54f4kSDP2

“I started the process, all the troops are coming home, they (Biden) couldn’t stop the process. 21 years is enough. They (Biden) couldn’t stop the process, they (Biden) wanted to but couldn’t stop the process.”

Joe Biden is weak, and our enemies know it.
Kamala Harris is weak.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) says “certainly there is sufficient blame on both sides” for situation in Afghanistan.

The Republicans are using Afghanistan to distract from two things..the insurrection & how many covid deaths they are responsible for. Don’t let them fucking distract us from what’s right in front of our faces. Just. Don’t.

When the Biden Administration announced their Afghanistan pullout plan, several of us on the Intel Committee told them their predictions of what would happen next were complete fantasy.
We are now witnessing how true our warnings to them were.
