It would appear that not all Democrats are buying into the narrative that all is well in Afghanistan.
Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) is absolutely irate that we still have Americans that were left behind.
He seems even more upset with the fact this administration is going about its business as though Americans behind Taliban lines is okay.
Delay and Inaction
This administration is doing everything in its power to turn the page on Afghanistan.
Biden was out handing out sandwiches to union members and Kamala Harris is headed to California to hit the campaign trail for Gavin Newsom.
If we did not know better, we would think all was well right now.
Senator Blumenthal is not buying it.
He is one of the few Democrats who have publicly blasted Biden for the lax attitude of getting our fellow Americans out of Afghanistan.
Blumenthal stated, “I have been deeply frustrated, even furious, at our government’s delay and inaction.
“There will be plenty of time to seek accountability for the inexcusable bureaucratic red tape that stranded so many of our Afghan allies.
“For now, my singular focus remains getting these planes in the air and safely to our airbase in Doha, where they have already been cleared to land.”
He added, “I expect the White House and State Department to do everything in their power – absolutely everything – to make this happen.
“These are American citizens and Afghans who risked everything for our country. We cannot leave them behind.”
The White House is NOT doing everything in its power, however.
In fact, the White House has only been offering excuses since our last military boot left the ground, yet most media, Democrats, and about half this country seems okay with that.
Now that reports are surfacing of the Taliban allegedly blocking flights containing Americans and allies, this clearly qualifies as a hostage situation, yet it’s only making headlines on Fox News and conservative publications.
It is time for more than just tough talk… Biden needs to be held accountable.
