Condi Rice and Hillary Clinton Take Warfooting Against Biden’s Afghan Withdraw

Two unlikely forces are joining together to criticize Joe Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton both are sounding the alarm over Biden’s plan.

According to Axios:

Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice told members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee they’re worried about President Biden’s plan to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan, with Rice suggesting the U.S. may need to go back, Axios has learned.

Why it matters: The position puts two former secretaries of State — from the Obama and Bush administrations — at odds with one of Biden’s most significant foreign policy moves to date.

The new president has vowed to complete the withdrawal by Sept. 11, the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attack. U.S. forces were sent to Afghanistan by Rice’s then-boss, former President George W. Bush, to destroy havens used by the attack’s organizers.

Clinton and Rice offered their reactions during a members-only Zoom call Wednesday, two attendees told Axios.

Both Rice and Clinton supported the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Both agreed that it would be necessary to keep a counter-terrorism operation somewhere with Rice stating, “You know, we’re probably gonna have to go back.”

‘Systemic racism” stopped neither Condoleezza Rice nor Colin Powell from counseling Vice President Dick Cheney (left) in the White House Situation Room on September 11, 2001. Then-National Security Advisor Rice succeeded Powell as Secretary of State on January 26, 2005. (Official White House photo via Wikimedia Commons.)

Representative Michael McCaul (R-Texas) added, “With the potential for an Islamic State, coupled with what they’re going to do to our contractors in Yemen and Afghanistan is, sadly, it’s going to be tragic there and we all see it coming.”

Clinton has stated that she regretted her decision to give President Bush the authority to go to war.

    1. Right ! We don’t need any of them & their opinions – We got enough problems with demented Biden & Obama pulling all his unlawful strings. Obama is the evil one – something has to be done to get that evil man out of the White House. He certainly wormed his way in ONCE AGAIN.
      Obama & his wealthy crones (Soros) began the plot against Trump even before he got into office. He needs to brought up on charges for plotting a conspiracy to destroy the President of the United States. How come nothing is done with this whole group of criminals? We are losing our country to the sewer rats!

  1. Excuse me? How was it up to Hillary to give George Bush permission to go to war? When was she ever in a position to give anyone permission to do anything? Does she think she’s Nancy Pelosi? She was never anything more than Secretary of State, and a poor one at that. She sure can raise cash though…I will give her that….she sure had a lot of stupid rich people wrapped around her little finger, or maybe just their names in a ledger somewhere.

    1. Hillary gave Russia 20% of U. S. Uranium to Russia and Russia gave $140 million to the Clinton Foundation AND Billy Boy got $500,000 for a 15 minute speech. Don’t forget these two, Hillary and Susan also lied on National TV about the Benghazi attack using a video as the cause of the attack. An email from Hillary’s “house computer” to her daughter said it was a terrorist attack. The email was sent the morning after the attack.

    2. She’s been gone from this earth for over 2 years ppl and others with her. They have ppl tricking you in every way possible. Fake fake fake

  2. As the time passes, we see who is standing with Trump and who does not. Sad, I once thought Condi Rice would’ve made a great presidential candidate. Today, I stand corrected. It’s time to put an end to The Endless Wars!

  3. Love Condi, hilldari is another matter altogether. That established, they both are tracking the same, correctly so, on the Afghan troop withdrawal BejingBiden is working. Having been there in service to GOD and country I’m convinced Condi especially is spot on to advise the withdrawal of US Mil presence there is ill advised and as she so eloquently states “You know, we’re probably gonna have to go back.” That probability is a most likely one. Tactically it makes zero sense to leave Afghanistan for a number of reasons and high on that list isnext door proximity to our nemesis Iran. BejingBiden will ultimately destroy America with his idiocy unless his policies are interrupted pronto.

  4. These two women must have some financial stake in keeping our soldiers in Afghanistan – why else would they start screaming about this move done by a leftist president who shouldn’t be president.

  5. I just realized, there’s poppy fields in Afghanistan – Bush family owns one of them, right?

  6. Afghanistan is a never ending war. How do you even define victory? The Iraq war was also a mistake. Iraq was keeping Iran at bay with the never ending war between them. Iran has now become one of the greatest threats to world peace with Iraq out of the way.

  7. Clinton did not have the POWER to stop the President from going to war.
    War came to US and the USA and the president has the power regardless of congress to engage an enemy of the state.
    Just as always, Clinton (either one), wants to inflate her personal ability, her actual value and her legacy. All of which are so small they are almost nill. She will be remembered in history as one of the most criminal, asinine, and crazy people ever allowed Ito the spotlight on this planet.
    Truly a waste of breath.

    HENCE WAS HUNG ON APRIL 20th 2021 ?
    Or one of her many look-alike ???

  9. You’d “think” that the doofus Dems would have learned SOMETHING from Obama’s pullout with the rise of ISIS, or as nitwit Obama said “ISIL”, which didn’t fly. Announce everything ahead of time, give “the enemy” time to recoup $$, supplies & a new plan for mayhem & “we’re back to square one”! Guess Biden never heard that HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF!God, he should know, since he was there when half of it was written!

  10. Come on girls, we’ve been there too long. We’ve got more important fish to fry. We have the Chinese at our back door and you’re worried about some sand thumpers. Let’s start to get real about who and what are our foes. And Hilary, we haven’t forgotten Benghazi and how well you dealt with that fiasco. Your nonsense brought about the death of quite a few Americans, so you really shouldn’t be saying too much. Maybe just put a sock in it.
