Throughout this withdrawal, Joe Biden and company have acted as though nobody knew Afghan forces would fold so quickly.
From intelligence reports we have seen, we know that is simply a false statement.
Shockingly, Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA), a staunch Biden ally to this point, is now challenging the narrative of the Biden administration.
If you watched any Blinken testimony this week, especially in the House, you saw Democrats gushing over Secretary Blinken.
It was disgraceful, really, that they would try to justify the actions of this administration and help push their talking points rather than truly get to the bottom of what had happened in Afghanistan.
The Senate was a different story for Blinken, however, as at least one Democrat was willing to challenge the narrative.
Kaine added a bit more fuel to the fire this week regarding the attacks against this administration and the lies it has been telling when he had his time with Blinken.
Kaine told Blinken, “The notion that General Milley said that ‘nothing I or anyone else saw indicated a collapse of this army and this government in 11 days.’
“I just don’t think that’s true.”
Kaine did give the concession that it may not have been the majority opinion, but the reports have been out for weeks now regarding the pushback from intelligence agencies on this.
Regarding the opinion that Afghanistan would fall, Kaine stated, “And it wasn’t 1%, and it probably wasn’t 10%.
“It was probably, based on what we’ve been hearing in this committee and others have too,… it was a possibility that had to be grappled with.”
This is a major blow for Biden, but we still have to wonder if we are ever going to get to the bottom of this or these hearings, as usual, are nothing more than lip service.
General Milley is also due to testify, yet Defense Secretary Austin has declined, which is rather astonishing considering the magnitude of failure regarding this withdrawal.
