Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) just asked a question many conservatives have thought but not dared to allow to pass over their lips.
The Afghanistan withdrawal was so botched, it almost seemed as if it was on purpose.
That is the very question that Blackburn wants answered.
Why, Joe, Why?
How do you explain removing troops before all staff and civilians are gone?
How do you explain leaving so much valuable equipment behind to fall into the enemy’s hands?
How do you explain allowing a group of terrorists to have their own country?
Blackburn dared to go there, giving a hint as to what we could expect once Republican Senators have Secretary of State Blinken in the hot seat.
She stated, “What we can expect are questions such as, did we have a withdrawal plan, or was this happenstance?”
“The steps that the Biden administration made, which are missteps, were they intentional [or] were they seeking to elevate China?
“Had they made a deal on the front end?
“Was the Taliban creating an exit strategy for us because we did not have an exit strategy?”
She continued, “Did they plan to leave thousands of Americans and SIV applicant and SIV holders behind enemy lines, and why did they underestimate the Taliban?”
“Were they not aware that the Taliban was working with China and Russia and Iran?”
Was the intelligence that bad, or was it simply ignored?
I would add one more question to that… how is Joe Biden going to be held accountable for killing a civilian family, then lying about it?
Whether all these questions will be answered remains to be seen.
