Over the last few days, reports have been breaking regarding an alleged list given to the Taliban.
The list, according to reports, featured the names of Americans and Afghans trying to get to the airport.
Some Republicans have taken to calling this a “kill list,” and Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) obliterated Biden on this front.
What Were You Thinking?
As rumors of the list were flying around, Joe Biden did not even deny this was a possibility.
It is as though it does not even register with him that handing the names of Americans and/or Afghan nationals to terrorists could have negative repercussions.
Rubio penned a letter to Biden, slamming him for such idiocy.
Rubio stated, “I am greatly distressed by your admission that your administration may have provided a list of American citizens, legal permanent residents and vulnerable Afghans to the Taliban.
“Regardless of the assurances your administration may have received from the Taliban, your decision to believe them was nothing less than irresponsible and naïve.”
Rubio’s letter was sent after Biden’s Friday presser when he stunned the nation with the admission.
Biden, at the time, stated, “I can’t tell you with any certainty that there’s actually been a list of names.
“There may have been, but I know of no circumstances. Doesn’t mean that it didn’t exist.
“It could very well have happened.”
The reports surfaced after anonymous administration officials leaked the report to the media out of utter outrage that such a measure would even be entertained by our State Department.
Rubio, in his letter, also took aim at any and all administration officials tied to this disastrous withdrawal.
He stated, “This action has endangered Americans, and our allies, who have been unable to leave Afghanistan and seriously calls into question your administration’s decision making.”
The words sound great, Senator Rubio, but now we all want to see action.
