Lindsey Graham: We Can Take Back Bagram ‘Tonight’

One of the biggest blunders of Joe Biden’s withdrawal plan was to give up Bagram Airfield.

Many questioned this in real-time, especially since Bagram would have remained in US control under Trump’s plan.

With the deadline approaching and it now appearing as though Americans will get left behind, Senator Graham (R-S.C.) insists that our military can and should take Bagram back.

We Can Take It Now

As the withdrawal plan was underway, it was announced that Bagram was not part of the evacuation plan.

This base, you may recall, was abandoned in the middle of the night, with our forces literally turning off the lights and leaving without notice to Afghanistan military leaders.

The decision had been made that it would have taken too many troops to maintain that base and still meet Biden’s withdrawal deadline.

General Milley even stated that Bagram was “not needed” for Biden’s plan, as it would concentrate on the evacuation taking place out of Kabul.

When questioned on this front, Milley had stated, “Our task given to us at that time, our task was protect the embassy in order for the embassy personnel to continue to function with their consular service and all that.

“If we were to keep both Bagram and the embassy going, that would be a significant number of military forces that would have exceeded what we had or stayed the same or exceeded what we had.

“So, we had to collapse one or the other, and a decision was made.”

Graham thinks this was the wrong way to go, stating, “Bagram was a great evacuation platform.

“It has multiple runways.

“It’s out in the middle of nowhere, and you can take that airbase tonight if you wanted to.

“If you had any will in the White House, militarily, we can take Bagram Air Base.”

Graham added, “They need to have a footprint to continue to get people out, and you can make the Taliban’s life difficult.

“But we are choosing to do none of that. This is a dark, despicable, and depressing chapter in American history.”

Trump specifically wanted to keep this base operational for the strategical advantages it would have given us in regard to both Russia and China.

Of course, there would have also been the benefit of still being able to keep a close eye on terrorist groups, but that will not be happening now.

Biden has given the Taliban the keys to the country and created a safe haven for terrorist operations by default.

    1. You are being way too polite. Biden is a f.cking idiot who needs to be 6 feet under and the sooner the better. His ho of a Vice president is to busy being on her knees with her mouth open.

  1. The least they could have done was to bomb the hell out of the arms we left behind so no one else could use it.

    1. It doesn’t take “brilliant” military minds to have thought that out and carpet bomb them all rather that let them be used against Americans and our friends. Shame on those who can’t think outside the box. And the icing on the cake….giving the Taliban the names of Americans and translators and employees. What were they thinking??

      1. They weren’t thinking. Biden has dementia. A psych eval was to be done and we never heard it was done or the results. If I were a military leader over there, I say screw it. I wouldn’t care if I was court martialed I would be manning my troops and fighting the Taliban and bombing the hell out of our equipment over there

  2. 3 1/2 years left to this farce of an administration
    I hope retired black ops would take control of America and give it back to people who believe in the Constitution. Voting was too corrupt last attempt at an election

  3. Biden is against America. Every day he opens his mouth .America gets it in the axx and American enemy’s grow stronger like it is deliberate .biden needs impeached as Pelosi and squad of the 4 Arab women here to distroy america.

    1. I think we should send the 4 rag heads to afganistan where they belong, they don’t belong in this country period they are here for one reason and that is to destroy our country

  4. Lindsey Graham is two faced. Voted with biden to make inflation in this country. One of only few Republicans who voted with biden on this 3.5 trillion fiasco that is going to happen. Get him out of office, not with the AMERICAN people, his own interest only. Remember that!

  5. Joe Biden needs to be impeached. He is an old idiot that has dementia. Harris needs to go to. They have destroyed the US in only 7 months. What else do they have up there sleeve to destroy. We are a laughing stock to the rest of the world.every life destroyed is blood on your hands old man. Resign and go live in a hole where you can’t destroy something.How can you go to bed at night and sleep?stop blaming President Trump for all of your wrongs. God bless our troops and the people you are leaving behind in Afghanistan!

  6. Amazing if it was Trump, Nancy would already be having hearings to get him impeached! What a lopsided pattern we have in our leadership! It should not be decided on whether you are a D or R but whether you do the right thing for our country and been elected for the security of our nation and they certainly are not doing it!! All the evidence there black and white and Congress just like to make opinions on the internet and not do what is right for our country. We have no leadership in the military, only racist and party line and not for America. Appears the leadership of our military doesn’t seem to recognize terrorist when they are confronted with them but run and hid and let American behind.

  7. What do you expect from Biden? For 50 years he Has done nothing but lie and cheat. The man is an narcissistic egomaniac who has had 2 strokes and as a result he has frontal lobe brain damage. So now you have a narcissistic egomaniac with brain damage running the country. The strokes are documented by Dr Ronnie Jackson who was the White house physician and is now a Senator. So chew on that for a while.

    1. This most disgusting person (biden) has no shame at all. How dare he greet these families of the dead marines. If I were one of them standing there, I think I would spit in his ugly squinty-eyed face.

  8. Saying and doing are two very different things lindsey. That’s right, lower case “L”. We all know which you do best. You love flapping your yap and doing nothing. Have you had any of those investigations on russiagate yet you scumbag?
    You haven’t missed a stroke when voting for biden’s agenda you POS. I hope SC finally has your number and you seat….

  9. I saw a video (now taken down if you can imagine that) of the small arms we left as the taliban now has 10.000 50 cal, a million eounds of ammo, 65 blackhawks, 49 armored vehicles and a pile of Franklins 2″ x3′ x 12′! Why is that much cash there to begin with? Treason is an understatement!
