President Obama was once reported as saying, “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f—- things up.” Former Obama Secretary of Defense Robert Gates put a finer point on it, saying that Joe Biden has “been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”
The botched withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan will forever be a stain on our nation’s history, and it is all due to the poor judgment and leadership of Joe Biden. As the NRSC’s latest video points out, even amid overwhelming and shocking evidence to the contrary, President Biden still refuses to take responsibility for his actions:
Unfortunately, Senate Democrats aren’t helping to hold the Administration accountable for the humanitarian crisis they needlessly set into motion. According to one report from Monday, “For some Democrats, silence has been the best course of action. Many have not issued statements since the Taliban raced into Kabul over the weekend and seized power as Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fled the country.”
Senate Democrats must speak out clearly to denounce what the Biden Administration has done and demand that they protect Americans and Afghan allies in the region. Anything less will only exacerbate this dark chapter in U.S. foreign policy.
