Biden’s U.S. pullout from Afghanistan went directly against the advice of top military generals. Now, the administration wants to blame Trump for the crisis.
President Biden apparently went against the advice of his top military generals when ordering the U.S.’s pullout from Afghanistan.
The president had met with top military leaders before announcing his plan to withdraw the U.S. from Afghanistan. The generals reportedly told Biden that he should leave 2,500 servicemen in the country and ramp up negotiations for a peace deal with the Taliban. But despite their recommendation, Biden declined.
No, US intelligence did NOT get it wrong on Afghanistan
The incompetent people in the Biden Administration decided to ignore it in favor of their own wishful thinkinghttps://t.co/0KWHYMUjR4

The resulting evacuation has put American lives in danger, and many lives in general, as the Taliban entered the Afghan capital of Kabul.
“Here’s the choice the president faced, again, remember that a deadline was established by the previous administration of May 1st to get our remaining forces out of Afghanistan and the idea that we could’ve sustained the status quo by keeping our forces there, I think, is wrong, because here’s what would have happened if the president decided to keep those forces there,” U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken claimed. “During the period from when the agreement was reached to May 1st, that Taliban had ceased attacking our forces ceased attacking NATO forces. It had also held off on this major offensive that we see now to try to take over the country to go for these provincial capitols, which in recent weeks it has succeeded in doing.”
Democrats have tried to blame Trump for the instability in Afghanistan, attempting to divert attention from the fact that Biden ignored his top generals and hid from the American people as Afghanistan fell to terrorists.
If it wasn’t obvious before, it should be more than obvious now that Joe Biden is not fit to lead this nation. His failures have led to a border crisis on our own turf, and now, they have led to terrorists taking control in Afghanistan. How much worse will we let it get?
