Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has reversed course and is distancing herself from Democrats again.
The polarizing congresswoman joined forces with House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) by accepting her invitation to join the biased January 6 Select Committee.
Now, however, Cheney is in full attack mode against Biden, prognosticating that Americans are “probably being held hostage” because of Biden’s failed withdrawal.
No Select Committee
When Donald Trump was in office, Democrats and Republicans like Cheney could not wait to pass judgment on every decision and action associated with Trump.
With Joe Biden in office, Dems want everyone to pump the brakes, saying now is not the time to judge… that all can wait until later.
Cheney was just as guilty as Democrats, but at least now she is also calling out Biden.
Cheney stated, “President Biden is the president of the United States and he’s had no problem in reversing course on other things.
“He decided he’s going to rejoin the JCPOA. He decided he’s going to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord.
“He’s reversed a number of decisions of the Trump administration.
“So, in this circumstance where absolutely the US national security requirement was to maintain a presence on the ground to help to frankly embolden and train the Afghans who were bearing the brunt of this and fighting for us, President Biden ignored the advice of his military leadership and decided instead he’s going to withdraw.”
She later added, “The fact that we’re now somehow relying on the Taliban to protect Americans — and the White House is denying what we know is happening on the ground, which is that Americans are being beaten.
“They’re being prevented from getting to the gates of the airport. And they are probably being held hostage.”
When this debacle first started, Cheney tried to link Trump to the disastrous withdrawal, but for the time being, she now seems to be going directly after Biden.
As we have covered extensively, Trump and Biden’s plans for withdrawal are on the opposite ends of the spectrum.
Trump was planning a conditions-based withdrawal, more than likely leaving special forces units in-country.
Biden literally turned off the lights and handed the country over to the Taliban with Americans still behind enemy lines.
This is his mess, and he needs to own it, period.
