When then-President Donald Trump announced he was going to pull our troops out of Afghanistan, there was both support and resistance on both sides of the aisle.
This would be a gradual withdrawal to ensure all the pieces were in place to facilitate Afghanistan so the Taliban would not take back all the ground taken away from them.
When Joe Biden took office, he halted the withdrawal, saying that he needed to ensure a proper plan was in place, then he resumed it, with the assumption being that he had put his plan in place to ensure this would not be the disaster experts had been warning about if a proper plan was not in place.
With reports now breaking that Afghan commanders were not even alerted that Bagram was being vacated, Biden now has a very serious issue on his hands, especially considering the rhetoric he tossed around regarding the assurance of having a plan in place before proceeding.
We Have a Problem
With virtually no presence in Afghanistan now by the United States, the Taliban is moving quickly.
Biden apparently left the country with no notice and no resources to keep what we have worked so hard to take away from the Taliban over the last two decades.
Not only is the United States gone, but many of Afghanistan’s own troops are fleeing the country.
Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) slammed Biden on this front, stating, “We can’t ignore the reality on the ground in Afghanistan.
“Many of the threats that brought us there in the first place are spreading through the region.”
George W. Bush’s former assistant secretary of state, Robert Charles, added, “It’s sort of a public relations disaster, a physical security disaster, and a foreign policy disaster.”

This is a complete and utter disaster for Joe Biden and his administration.
