Leaked Documents Highlight Biden’s Failure in Leadership During Catastrophic Afghanistan Withdrawal

President Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan left unknown numbers of Americans stranded behind enemy lines and led to the deadliest attack on Americans in Afghanistan since August 2011.

Now, newly leaked documents from the Biden White House reveal just how “unprepared” President Biden and his administration were for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

The documents indicate that those outside of the administration felt Biden “lacked urgency” as the administration was still scrambling to prepare an evacuation and relocation plan for civilians and Afghan staff the afternoon before Taliban forces took over the capital city of Kabul during the conclusion of the U.S.’s disastrous withdrawal.

According to Axios reporting:

“The document regarded “Relocations out of Afghanistan,” and the meeting was held from 3:30-4:30pm on the afternoon of Aug. 14, Washington time.

“At that moment, Taliban fighters were descending upon Kabul.”

“Mark Jacobson, deputy NATO representative in Afghanistan during the Obama administration, told Axios: ‘That so much planning, prioritizing, and addressing of key questions had not been completed, even as Kabul was about to fall, underscores the absence of adequate interagency planning.’”

THE FACTS ABOUT BIDEN’S FAILED WITHDRAWAL: 

  • President Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan has led to:
    • UNKNOWN HUNDREDS of Americans were abandoned behind enemy lines in Afghanistan for months.
      • The administration admitted they did not know how many Americans remained in Afghanistan.
    • The deadliest attack on Americans in Afghanistan since August 2011 occurred because of Biden’s failed leadership.
    • Unknown BILLIONS of dollars in U.S. military equipment is now in the hands of the Taliban.
  • Terrorists are now emboldened to attack Americans.

TIMELINE FLASHBACK:

  • Biden is the one who decided to pull out U.S. forces by the upcoming 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.
  • Joe Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan was NOT conditions-based.
    • The conditions of President Trump’s agreement were continuously violated by the Taliban and the Biden administration did not hold them accountable.
    • The Biden administration had been warned that the Taliban would stop at nothing until they retook the country. Now, the Taliban is back and the United States is less safe .
  • The decision by the Biden Administration to abandon Bagram Air Base early and leave only a few hundred troops at Hamid Karzai International Airport opened the door to the Taliban’s rapid takeover.
    • Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs John Kirby joined CNN where he ADMITTED the Administration has NO PLANS to help Americans get out of Afghanistan.
    • White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to admit that Americans are stranded in Afghanistan, despite an abundance of evidence to the contrary.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: These leaked documents further prove that President Biden is to blame for the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan. No one else. Because of Biden’s catastrophic failure in leadership in Afghanistan, he has emboldened our adversaries and put doubt in the minds of our allies.
