    Default Blinken lays blame on Trump as he defends messy withdrawal from Afghanistan

    Who didn't see this crap coming? Not only is Blinkin trying to lay the blame on Trump, the House Foreign Affairs Committee has decided to "investigate" all 4 Presidents on Afghanistan rather than investigate the abortion Joke Biden is responsible for.

    I don't care who did what prior to Biden. Biden was the CinC at the time of execution. He did NOT use Trump's deadline date, so that excuse is lame. As CinC,, he did not have to carry out any part of anything Trump had arranged. He sure as Hell hasn't felt bound by that for any other matter.

    This is on Joke. And if he can't "Be the Man", then he doesn't need to pretend he is.

    Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Monday vigorously defended the Biden administration’s decision to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan and his agency’s handling of the chaotic and deadly evacuation mission from the war-torn country, arguing that the president “inherited” a disaster-in-the-making from Donald Trump.
    In testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Blinken said the U.S. is committed to evacuating the 100 or so Americans who still want to leave the country. But he declined to say whether the U.S. would be able to evacuate the thousands of Afghan allies who applied for visas and who are at risk of retribution from the Taliban.

    He still made the ultimate decisions, and then the decision to do nothing knowing a suicide bombing was going to take place, the firm pull out date and leaving Americans behind for the Taliban.

    Diluting the fiasco at Kabul into the whole Afghanistan "show" and all 4 Presidents isn't my idea of an investigation into who and why they jacked up departing Afghanistan all to Hell.

    By the time they get done it'll be one of the Services' faults

    God knows Biden was tottering around squealing "bomb somebody quick, and claim it was a ISIS 'planner'!". I'm sure Joe didn't care who was on the receiving end of that missile.

    Funny how CNN reported hundreds of times that Trump "falsely claimed" this and that with no reason for saying it, but they didn't say anything about the Biden Administration's claim that they had bombed an ISIS planner. I will give NYT and WaPo some credit that at least they did.

    Isn't this very much like Hitler trying to blame Poland and France for World War II? [This analogy is intended to compare Biden to a bumbling, lying, pusillanimous Hitler. Nothing else]

    And as far as investigating 4 Presidents on Afghanistan, let's make sure we check on Senator Joe Biden's votes to go into both Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as Vice President Joe Biden's action during the Obama Administration. Let's also compare the loss of American lives in Afghanistan during the 4 years of the Trump Adminstration versus the 7 months of the Biden Administration.
