President Joe Biden has had a slew of mistakes since taking office, from mishandling the border crisis, to sending mixed messages on the COVID vaccine, to raising inflation and the national debt to dangerous levels.
His latest failure in Afghanistan has been deadly for many, and may be his most serious flop.
“Three minutes,” wrote Jason Rantz. “It didn’t take long for Joe Biden to blame Donald Trump for the failure over the weekend in Afghanistan. No honest, good-faith person accepts this claim.”
On top of that, Republicans are now calling for an investigation.
House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called for an investigation into the Biden administration over Afghanistan.
“How does the rest of the world look at us?” he told Punchbowl News in an interview. “They like that the president doesn’t tweet, but they don’t think America is very tough.”
Biden, though, has stood firm and defended his decision.
“Over our country’s 20 years at war in Afghanistan, America has sent its finest young men and women, invested nearly $1 trillion dollars, trained over 300,000 Afghan soldiers and police, equipped them with state-of-the-art military equipment, and maintained their air force as part of the longest war in US history,” Biden said Saturday. “One more year, or five more years, of US military presence would not have made a difference if the Afghan military cannot or will not hold its own country. And an endless American presence in the middle of another country’s civil conflict was not acceptable to me.”
