This is absolutely outrageous.
On Thursday, the White House published an assessment of President Biden’s botched exit strategy from Afghanistan in 2021. The report was finally made public just a few days before the Easter break, amidst the backdrop of former President Donald Trump’s indictment hogging the limelight in the news.
And just when we thought President Biden and the Democrats couldn’t stoop any lower they are now claiming that the botched Afghanistan withdrawal was Trump’s fault!
According to Fox, Biden administration representatives have released a 12-page summary, defending the President’s call to withdraw American forces from Afghanistan after two decades. The report asserts that the decision was in the best interest of the nation. The document does not seem to admit to any errors committed by President Biden. However, the report does repeatedly condemn the Trump administration for limiting the terms of the American military’s evacuation. During the evacuation, 13 American soldiers were killed in a suicide bombing while securing the Kabul airport.
The report recognizes that the evacuation of American citizens and allies from Afghanistan should have commenced earlier. However, it ascribes the delays to a combination of factors such as the Afghan government and military, as well as the evaluations made by the U.S. military and intelligence community.
“President Biden’s choices for how to execute a withdrawal from Afghanistan were severely constrained by conditions created by his predecessor,” the report states.
The White House accuses former President Trump of giving confidence to the Taliban by holding peace negotiations without consulting with the United States’ allies and partners in the area. The document highlights that Trump simultaneously decreased the presence of American military forces in Afghanistan through a sequence of reductions in 2020.
The White House then blamed Trump again and said, “During the transition from the Trump Administration to the Biden Administration, the outgoing Administration provided no plans for how to conduct the final withdrawal or to evacuate Americans and Afghan allies. Indeed, there were no such plans in place when President Biden came into office, even with the agreed upon full withdrawal just over three months away.”
It’s absolutely insane and pathetic to see them blaming this entire Afghanistan withdrawal on President Trump when he has absolutely nothing to do with it. History will not be kind to Joe Biden’s presidency.
