Democrat Senator Patty Murray’s refusal to hold the Biden Administration accountable for their botched withdrawal and rapid surrender to the Taliban in Afghanistan is triggering. It takes us back to 2002 when Murray praised Osama Bin Laden, the former leader of al-Qaeda and mastermind of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Senator Murray to High School Students in WA: “[Bin Laden] has been out in these countries for decades, building schools, building roads, building infrastructure, building day-care facilities, building health-care facilities, and the people are extremely grateful. He’s made their lives better.”
The withdrawal from Afghanistan was an unmitigated disaster that put terrorists back in charge of the country. It resulted in the death of 13 U.S. service members, the abandonment of over 100 U.S. citizens and the majority of allied Afghans behind enemy lines, a donation of $212 million worth of U.S. military equipment to the Taliban, and the international community questioning our resolve throughout the world.
Still, Patty Murray refuses to hold her party’s leadership accountable for their foreign policy agenda of abandonment, which has abandoned Americans and our allies to terrorists.
