‘Unforgivable’: Republicans lambaste President Biden for leaving Americans, Afghan allies behind in Afghanistan

News & Politics

President Biden is facing heavy criticism from Republican lawmakers for completing the pullout of U.S. forces from Afghanistan while leaving some American citizens stranded in the country where the Taliban has seized control.

“My heart is heavy today, knowing the Biden Administration has left behind thousands of Afghan allies and hundreds of U.S. citizens in Afghanistan, including constituents from the 2nd district,” GOP Rep. Don Bacon of Nebraska said in a statement.

“This was completely avoidable, and the disgraceful actions by this Administration are on full display and they should be ashamed. This is the worst display of incompetence and weakness I’ve seen from any Administration in my lifetime,” Bacon declared. “Our national honor is tarnished, our credibility with our allies is in tatters, and our country is more vulnerable to potential attacks than at any time since 2001. China, Russia, and Iran are emboldened, and the strategic repercussions will be felt for years to come.”

The U.S. has now completed its withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, but some American citizens remain stranded there.

“We believe there are still a small number of Americans — under 200, and likely closer to 100 — who remain in Afghanistan and want to leave,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Monday.

President Biden said in a statement that he has “asked the Secretary of State to lead the continued coordination with our international partners to ensure safe passage for any Americans, Afghan partners, and foreign nationals who want to leave Afghanistan.”

Republican Rep. Mark Green of Tennessee, who is a military veteran himself, described the abandonment of Americans and others as “unforgivable.”

“This is a dark moment — a stain — in our country’s history. Hundreds of Americans and thousands of Afghan allies were left behind enemy lines. This is unforgivable. Make no mistake: No one wants a forever war, but this is far from over. The Taliban are a sadistic enemy, and the American citizens and Afghan allies left behind will be their prisoners,” Green said in a statement.

“Joe Biden has dishonored this country, and his incompetence has cost American lives and our national security. Our troops performed honorably. And we will never forget the men and women — my brothers and sisters in arms — who gave their lives so we may live free,” Green said.

Republican Rep. Darin LaHood of Illinois described leaving Americans behind as “morally indefensible.”

“It is morally indefensible that President Biden abandoned Americans stranded in Afghanistan,” LaHood tweeted. “President Biden made the decision that adhering to his arbitrary deadline and keeping his promise to the Taliban was more important than keeping his promise to stranded Americans.”

  1. President Eisenhower warned of military-industrial complex ——Some just don’t get it—–endless wars feed the war machine–

    1. No one wants Americans to die, especially for nothing. There’s something to be said for wrapping things up properly. Now they died for nothing and with over 8b in ewuipment left there, now more will die with our own weapons being used against us. This was a failure like never seen before. Way worse than Vietnam, Benghazi or anything else.

  2. My heart is heavy today, knowing the Biden Administration has left behind thousands of Afghan allies and hundreds of U.S. citizens in Afghanistan, including constituents from the 2nd district,” GOP Rep. Don Bacon of Nebraska said in a statement.

    So exactly WTF are you and the rest of the spineless republicans going to DO about it?

    I know, NOTHING!

    Xi-Jinbiden should be impeached and removed, and the Hoe should be right behind him, and the Botox Bitch right on Heels up Harris ass being booted out the door!

    But you pussy R’s will do nothing!!!!!!

    1. Very direct and true but we can only dream of such a happening. Ever wonder what harris is thinking behind her mask when she stands behind Joe, come on you old geezer fall down.

  3. More virtual signaling from people that are all in on the bs war and the whole “we’re going to die” from a flu.

  4. Talk is cheap and that is all Washington wants to do. Neither side is worth what the 13 Marines were to this country. They are all responsible for were this country is today. Both parties supported bad laws.

  5. Obama said it himself, Joe Biden can screw up anything. The guy that saved his buns years ago and got him out is stuck there now and Biden isn’t even trying to repay the favor. His infra structure is more important than the military and he has nothing that helps the covid he just keeps quoting Fauci. How this guy got elected is beyond the realm of reality and eventually they will say due to his health he will be turning the presidential duties over to his cohort Harris then we will have a whole slew of new issues to deal with bacause she neither has the skill or knowledge to fill his post so the next three years are going to be a rough going.

    1. You say it will be rough the next three years. I’ve go news for you. America will no long exist in three years. We know the weak kneed Republicans aren’t going to do anything but go on the merry way.
