Joe Biden’s blunders as commander-in-chief are stacking up.
Perhaps his biggest mistake was on foreign policy.
And the Pentagon made a startling admission about Biden’s failed Afghanistan withdrawal.
Joe Biden promised that no Americans would be left behind as a result of his botched Afghanistan pull-out.
But everyone knew that was a lie as the withdrawal deadline neared with hundreds of Americans still in the country.
Now the Pentagon is saying over four-hundred Americans were left behind enemy lines.
Fox News reports:
“The Pentagon stated Tuesday that nearly 450 American citizens are still in Afghanistan following August’s U.S. military withdrawal, more than the Biden administration has previously claimed. The latest tally came from Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Colin Kahl, after Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., pointed to what he believed were contradictory or at least ‘confusing’ numbers that the administration has presented since the August 31 withdrawal.”
Donald Trump negotiated a withdrawal from Afghanistan after being coerced by the warhawks to stay for years.
But Biden bungled the planned withdrawal as soon as he got into office.
Then he pushed back the date, which sowed distrust with Taliban forces, then he proceeded to engage in a bombing campaign.
After that, he executed an ill-advised withdrawal that included ceding Bagram Airfield to the Taliban for no reason.
The Taliban even agreed to allow U.S. forces to keep the base until all Americans left, but the Biden administration inexplicably turned down the offer and ran operations through the smaller civilian airport in Kabul.
Senator Inhofe said:
“One of the many confusing things about this whole thing is that we really don’t know how many Americans are left in Afghanistan . . . The administration’s number of U.S. citizens left in Afghanistan keeps changing. We all understand that. It’s very confusing.”
There is no way Trump would’ve allowed hundreds of Americans to be left behind in Afghanistan after a poorly executed withdrawal.
Biden’s lack of leadership on Afghanistan is one of many reasons why his approval numbers are cratering.
Biden dug an even deeper hole when he offended gold star families by checking his watch multiple times during a transfer ceremony for their children who died in the field.
Biden further turned off the gold star families by incessantly talking about his dead son Beau.
Biden’s failure in Afghanistan is ongoing, and it must not be forgotten moving forward.
