Joe Biden’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal is facing criticism from members of Congress. Even Democrats have slammed Biden for leaving Americans behind to fend for themselves against the Taliban. But some Senate Democrats still refuse to criticize the Biden Administration’s abandonment of Americans. Why? Because they are playing politics with the lives of Americans stranded in Afghanistan.
According to Politico, Democrats in Congress are “fretting” over how to hold Biden accountable because they “don’t want to hurt their own party’s president.”
Hundreds of Americans and thousands of Afghan allies are still stranded in Afghanistan because of Biden’s botched withdrawal – and Senate Democrats’ number one priority is not hurting Joe Biden politically. Senators like Mark Kelly, Maggie Hassan, Raphael Warnock, Catherine Cortez Masto, and Michael Bennet would rather stay silent on Joe Biden’s failure to keep Americans safe than hold him accountable.
Americans deserve leaders who don’t play politics with their safety.
