Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) has become a thing of legend during Senate hearings.
He has more or less evolved into the Senate’s version of Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).
His questioning of DOD IG nominee Robert Storch exposed just how dishonest this current administration has been.
SIGAR Thought It
Last week, a report from the Army revealed just how badly the Afghanistan withdrawal was botched.
Biden rejected the findings, of course, but he has also been claiming nobody knew Afghanistan forces would collapse so early, only that is also a lie.
Which brings us to the line of questioning, or should I say, statement, by Hawley.
When he got his floor time, he stated, in part, “Here’s what I’m getting at.
“I’ve heard multiple members of this committee since the fall of Afghanistan say that it’s unbelievable that we didn’t know that the Afghan security forces were so badly prepared.
“That they would have collapsed in the fashion they did.
“I tell you who could have thought it: SIGAR.”
“Why? Because they issued report after report saying that the Afghan security forces weren’t appropriately trained, that they weren’t prepared, that the Pentagon was making it difficult for SIGAR to get any information.
“That DOD kept changing the metrics by which to assess the readiness of the Afghan security forces.
“SIGAR has warned for years that what would happen in Afghanistan is exactly what did happen.”

According to the Senate report on the withdrawal, 9,000 Americans were left behind.
At the time, Biden told us it was around 100.
