Biden Points at Generals for Failures in Afghanistan

Joe Biden just committed the cardinal sin of selling out his troops.

During Biden’s press conference, he went out of his way to blame everyone from Trump to his generals.

The problem, however, is that information available does not necessarily mesh with what Joe Biden said.

Conflicting Reports

The question at hand is why did we abandon Bagram when it clearly would have been a major asset to hold for this evacuation.

On this, Biden stated, “On the tactical questions of how to conduct an evacuation or a war, I gather up all the major military personnel that are in Afghanistan, the commanders, as well as the Pentagon.

“I ask for their best military judgment – what would be the most efficient way to accomplish the mission.

“They concluded, the military, that Bagram Air Base was not much value-added, that it was much wiser to focus on Kabul. So, I followed that recommendation.”

That was not the conclusion, though.

Bagram was closed because of the significant drawdown in troops and the forces that would have been needed to keep it open.

During an August 18 press conference, General Milley stated, “Our task given to us at that time, our task was protect the embassy in order for the embassy personnel to continue to function with their consular service and all that. If we were to keep both Bagram and the embassy going, that would be a significant number of military forces that would have exceeded what we had or stayed the same or exceeded what we had.

“So, we had to collapse one or the other, and a decision was made. The proposal was made from CENTCOM commander and the commander on the grounds, Scott Miller, to go ahead and collapse Bagram. That was all briefed and approved, and we estimated that the risk of going out of HKIA or the risk of going out of Bagram about the same, so going out of HKIA — was estimated to be the better tactical solution in accordance with the mission set we were given and in accordance with getting the troops down to about 600, 700 number.”

Whoever decided that Bagram needed to close first was simply wrong, as many current and ex-military have already attested to, including a statement from a helicopter pilot who had served in Afghanistan…

I would also like to note that when Milley testified before Congress, he noted at the time that the powers that be had already decided that Bagram was not necessary to the mission at hand…

The blame for this falls on either Biden or Austin, but neither is stepping up to take the blame. However, I do not give Generals McKenzie or Milley a free pass, as they clearly had some role in this as well.

My personal opinion is that both should be asked for the resignation or relieved of command, as this has been an epic failure like we have never seen.

However, we also have a commander-in-chief that is willing to sell out anyone so as not to take blame himself. Considering he has the final word, the first finger pointed must be at Biden.

It is one of the more shameful performances by any president in the history of this country.

    1. Biden must be Court Marshaled for his acts of Treason as the Commander in Chief.
      Biden took the Oath of Office on January 20, 2021.

    1. HAHAHAH. got that right, give our military crap away and let Americans die. we paid for everything biden handed to the taliban, kickbacks must be coming in gold.

  1. Pres. Trump had a good plan the Biden did not want to use it and be credited with using it. Biden and the Generals should have known that you get Americans and the people who helped us out first. Then the troops out last. Just can’t fix stupid.

  2. Biden’s ignorance is only exceeded by his stupidity! From the way Biden and General Milley describe the events, it sounds like it was all planned ahead of time. Time to get rid of Joe “Benedict” Biden!

  3. Throw Biden to Isis and see what do to him in a New York minute. Then take a poll with the American people and see if they will support getting him back.I guarantee that nobody wants him back.

  4. 46 Presidents since George Washington and this is the WORST President and VP in the history of these United States of America.
    Both Joe and Ho need to be removed immediately!!!

  5. Dammit what is wrong with all of us we know Mush ind Biden didn’t win this election fairly we know the democrats stole the election now judges are ordering ballets be preserved in Arizona proven fraud in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Trump won these states just like he said he did so get Biden out HE IS NOT THE LEGAL PRESIDENT HE STOLE THE ELECTION. Impeach, court martial, arrest him for all his lies and fraud.

    1. ED Loiseau, We Agree To that!! Put Biden Harris in Jail!! They are so stupid!! Yes the ELECTION WAS STOLLEN FROM TRUMP!!!! Impeach,Court martial, Arrest them IMMEDIATELY!! Worst Ever !!

  6. HE SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH TREASON AND WAR CRIMES ,PRISON IS TOO GOOD FOR HIM ,HE IS LISENING TO OBAMA ,AND PELOSI ,THEY SHOULD BE CHARGED TOO

  7. Biden was never good at anything ;he is the perfect Democrat they all learn from him lie lie lie your way to hell
    I’am 78 years old I was a Democrat when they actually stood for the working man &women I seen this coming years ago; I got out i new they didn’t care for anybody but only them selfs
    But this has gone terrible wrong; ;it saddens me to see how people vote for them because there parents were Democrats sad sad. I ask you out there do you want your party or your Country. 🇺🇸 🦅 I will die if needed
    To keep AMERICA FREE SO IF THIS IS WHAT IT TAKES BRING IT ON
    THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME

  8. If you want to take a poll, ask people of America how to fix this. Remove Harris first for incompetence, then remove Pelosi from congress for treason, try Biden for inhumanity against American s allies. At time same time let Americans vote for their replacement of Biden.

  9. Sirhan Sirhan released today, with parole. Has to be approved first. Which our system as it is today, it would not surprise me if Sirhan Sirhan, was released per Pelosi. She is nuts, now before she goes from Congress she is willing to destroy America, per Obama, who is a terrorist. He murdered Robert Kennedy on June 5, 1968. Martin Luther King murdered April 1968. Now, Biden let’s thousands of Afghans into the United States.

  10. they are damn near as culpable as Biden ,back there giving Joe a reach around everytime he required stroking for the cameras . milley and austin should be tossed from moving vehicles at freeway speeds .you put sandals on trump he’d look like jesus now

  11. I agree with you Ed, as our generation didn’t miss any wars. Now we have a take for granted 2 generations on board The 35 year old group and Grandkids seem to think FREEDOM is Free. It never has been free, never will be. You have to fight for it. Biden never had to be in a War, or suffer the consequences of what was lost. I have big news, Biden is a full blown nut case and so is Pelosi. They both need to go to prison with a lot of others for a coup on there own government. This coup is TREASON, for all involved.

  12. Captain Sippy Cup has screwed the pooch and is up for an Emmy for his pathetic performances. Not even the fake news media can shield him from this sh*t storm! He owns this debacle lock, stock and barrel………….no more hidin’ for Biden!!

  13. Biden has been a failure since birth. Perhaps they should have dismantled him then. He plagiarized the work of others like he did it. He roamed the planet while in office stealing everything he could. His family all bought in on it and now he sells out America for his global buddies. What a jerk. Then he sniffs and feels all the little girls. Yep, he is a Democrat.

  14. I’m startin to not trust this forum due to the fact that sometimes my comments don’t get posted…is this forum being run by Mark “Adolph” suckshisownco..k Zuckerberg!!!

Per a new CBS poll, 84% of Americans have been impacted by the #BidenGasHike and 90% by food prices.

71% disapprove of Biden’s handling of inflation.
