The terror attack in Kabul gave Republicans the opportunity they were looking for to go after Biden, and they are all taking their shots.
Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who never agreed with a complete withdrawal out of the area, shredded Biden after reports of our troops having died in the attack.
McConnell issued a scathing attack, putting the responsibility of every life lost squarely in the lap of Joe Biden.
Hearts are Breaking
McConnell has always been a strong advocate of keeping some footprint in Afghanistan to prevent terrorist outbreaks.
The clumsy withdrawal and cooperation with the Taliban all but ensured disaster.
Everyone seemed to see it but Joe Biden, who ultimately gave the thumbs up for the withdrawal plan.
After the loss of life, McConnell stated, “Americans’ hearts are breaking for our servicemembers and diplomats.
“They are doing heroic work to rescue American citizens and Afghan partners in the predictably chaotic wake of the President’s decision to withdraw.
“Terrible things happen when terrorists are allowed to operate freely.
“This murderous attack offers the clearest possible reminder that terrorists will not stop fighting the United States just because our politicians grow tired of fighting them.”
He later added, “Our sympathies are also with the families of the innocent Afghans whom the terrorists killed today, and all the vulnerable Afghans who are risking everything in desperate efforts to escape the Taliban’s impending rule.
“Our partners in a long fight against terror deserve better than the dark fate that will await them after the last military aircraft has departed.”
The way I see it, there are two possible outcomes as a direct result of Biden’s sloppy plan.
The first is that we are forced to send troops back into Afghanistan and begin this war all over again.
The second is that we stand pat and, eventually, a massive terror attack takes place on American soil.
Either way, it is an absolute failure by this administration.
