Secretary of State, Democrats Attempt to Blame Trump for Botched Afghanistan Withdrawal

While Secretary of State Antony Blinken was grilled by Congress over President Biden’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan he and other Democrats attempted to point the blame towards Biden’s predecessor. The House Foreign Affairs Committee is questioning Blinken over the administration’s widely regarded failed withdrawal of troops and civilians from the region after the Taliban swiftly took control.

However, rather than Blinken take responsibility for the botched plan he pointed towards Donald Trump and Democrats quickly supported his claim and defended Biden.

Fox News reports:

“Disentangling ourselves from the war in Afghanistan was never going to be easy,” Meeks said. “And for my friends who presume a clean solution for the withdrawal existed, I would welcome hearing what exactly a smooth withdrawal from a messy, chaotic, 20-year war looks like. In fact, I’ve yet to hear the clean withdrawal option, because I don’t believe one exists.”

“They are masking their displeasure with criticism but fail to offer feasible alternatives,” he said. “Once again, we are seeing domestic politics injected into foreign policy.”

Meeks also criticized former President Donald Trump for his negotiations with the Taliban during his time in office. Meeks said that in addition to Blinken, the committee should hear from former officials in Trump’s administration, as well as the Obama and Bush administrations.

In his questioning of Blinken on Monday, Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., argued that there was an ongoing “stampede” last month at the Kabul airport, where the U.S. carried out its evacuation, and that “there is simply no way the administration can have an orderly or successful stampede.”

“We inherited a deadline, we did not inherit a plan,” Blinken said regarding Trump’s initial May 1 deadline.

BIDEN AND HIS DEMOCRAT TEAM ARE GUTLESS LIARS,AA LETS BUSH OUT FOR THE DAY, AND HEAR WHAT HAPPENS, WE HAVE TWO PRESIDENTS NOW, WHO WERE PRESIDENTS IN NAME ONLY, KIND OF MAKES YOU SICK DON’T IT. Biden murdered with his drone attacks, biden murdered the Alfgan withdrawal, has biden done anything right since he’s been in office.Think he should be in jail for his dishonor of his sworn oath of office, It’s against our laws, since when does a handful of unelected biden officals, have the authority to leave 80 billion dollars worth of military gear behind on the battlefied? along with airports, enbassy, Allies and Americans on the battlefied and in a war zone ? If Congress approved the funds for those items, why did Congress not have any say in their dispatchment? They did not, which means biden has caused this entire debacle to occur, by ignoring his appointed officals. Which leads to my next question who does joe biden work for? not the Ameican people,we know who pays the biden’s right. It’s time for congressional review of this entire matter. What does Congress think they are getting paid to do? The American taxpayor will not forget NOR WILL THE VOTER,

The wider scope of what you are saying is this How is China direct depositing $50 Million the very minute Joe Biden announced he would run for office in his personal bank account not collusion?????? That is the secret the media was keeping secret about calling him China Joe! The Jab is a death sentence!!!!!! Forced suicide by way of lethal injection! Millions of fraudulent ballots have been found in just a few states in the 2020 Election! New Zealand was the first to myth bust the lie of #CoronaSCAM2020! They stated that Coronavirus was just a propaganda campaign to help steal an election and they were 100% correct! Anyone with half of a brain could tell that the testing was a total sham! It s simple idiots when you take a live sample it only stays live for so long of a time, the setting on the machine was set to test on a 10,000 cycle which means by the time your sample was taken and it was finished waiting in line to be tested then finally actually tested 10,000 times the sample had died before the 10,000th cycle throwing a red flag because the machine started with a living cell!!! The ridiculous amount of cycles was needed to make sure as many cells died while testing as possible! The second country to myth bust the #CoronaSCAM2020 was Canada who was taken to court over mandates and the judge agreed with the litigant and ordered the Canadian Government to turn over a sample of Coronavirus for independent lab testing! They had 30 days to comply, they immediately called the US Government for help and after the 30 days not 1 single cell of coronavirus was turned in to the court because it does not exist!!!!! Just like the previous 2 scams the demo RATS tried to pull on election years 1 Swine Flu 2 AVIAN Bird Flu they did not have the money to buy off the media on those 2 attempts to steal elections by using fraudulent viruses but this time with coronavirus they had China buying out all US Media!

‘Forced suicide by lethal injection:’ let’s hope this is an exaggeration. But we are keeping a list of individuals in our circle who have acquired painful or debilitating post-vax conditions that their physicians cannot define or explain, much less treat effectively. Given my background I suppose that the virus is Russian roulette with one cylinder loaded, yet the Almighty Vaccine is Russian roulette with TWO cylinders loaded. Not everyone will get seriously ill or die, but some will indeed, and their numbers are being carefully swept under the carpet by some power up to no good. Even the Black Plague did not kill everyone. But the Virus Boogerman was indeed a wicked scam to use fear to steal an election by fraudulent ‘phantom’ ballots, quod erat demonstrandum. Many will conveniently deny this, but the fact remains that no official body that mattered would even entertain the prospect of hearing the evidence. The drone operatives who were brainwashed to thwart ‘Trump the Dictator’ by stuffing ballot boxes have now given us the REAL ‘Fearless Leader.’ Boris Bidenov and Natasha Harris? [Humblest apologies to Rocky and Bullwinkle!]

China wants the land of the USA but not its people Joe Biden and his fraudulent friends are using the Coronavirus illegally to kill off the US Population so the USA can then be sold to China! Who profits from the sale? the only people not dumb enough to believe the media because they created the lie, the Demo RAT party! They are too dumb to realize that when they finish their hellish plan that all of the money they stole from us will be nothing more than fancy toilet paper because we will be China West not the USA at that point!

What do the deadlines have to do with the absolutely ass backwards way they withdrew. What General got the bright idea to remove the protection of our troops first. This was done on purpose by the Biden administration. They bear all responsibility for the order of withdrawal. The blood is on their hands. Nuff’said.

Let’s see what else Biden inherited from Trump.
Wall building—Biden stopped it.
Remain in Mexico—Biden stopped it.
No catch and release–Biden releases the unvaccinated.
Energy Independence—Biden eliminated that.
No Paris Agreement—Biden couldn’t wait to reenter it.
Jerusalem Embassy—Biden about to eliminate it.
Trump’s appointees—Biden wants to fire them.
No mask mandates—Biden instituting them.
The one thing he kept is the withdrawal for which he formulated no plan even though he had over 6 months to do so, He mucked it up so it’s Trump’s fault. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction (and also far more rare).

How the Hell The Dems wants to put the blame on President Trump for Biden BIG MISTAKE of AFGHAN? Biden is a SICK MAN and he has no one in his office who knows how to run an office, therefore, he will always have problem with everything as long as he is President. Also, there is a big GHOST in his office that is following him everywhere he goes and a lot of evil spirits are in the White House, nothing will go right as long as the Dems are in the White House and the Congress. MR. Biden, remember when the Election was on, where were you? You never came out to campaign for the people, therefore, the Election were given to you by people who stole for you while you are in your BASEMENT, so as long as you are in the White House, evil spirits will surround you and nothing will go right for you. AND YOU CAN TAKE THAT TO THE BANK.

Blinken is a liar. Trump planed a Conditional withdrawal. The moment the Taliban started expanding their territory in June – Trump would have bombed the hell out of them AND it would have extended the withdrawal. Trump would have pulled the military and all it’s assets AFTER all American citizens and helpful Afghanistan citizens had been extracted. Biden and Blinken pulled the military out first – citizens left to fend for themselves. Those are the stone cold facts of the matter.

Most importantly, Blinken stated they inherited a deadline without a plan. Brit Hume expertly pointed out this afternoon that the May 1 deadline was contingent on several conditions that Biden simply ignored. Blaming the prior administration for bad things is standard practice in politics and as usual, this is nonsense.

Dems had 7 full months to plan for the exit; doesn’t matter that Trump negotiated the agreement; execution was disastrous and will have long-term repercussions! Besides Dems micromanaged everything Trump did on a day-to-day basis for 4 years … I don’t think Trump ever did ANYTHING that met with Dem approval – if anything, their tedious scrutiny mustn’t have been lacking something!

First and foremost, Military personnel should’ve been the LAST to leave, after evacuating civilians with appropriate paperwork. This should’ve been done before the Taliban even entered Kabul. Second, the air base to the north should’ve been a last stand before exiting completely. You don’t have to be military to figure that one out. It was defendable, had two airstrips and would’ve made evacuation much smoother. Afghans could’ve been properly vetted before leaving. Third, destroy or remove any and all personnel records and data from the Embassy. Fourth, destroy or remove all military equipment that was accessible to the Taliban. Fifth, load the Embassy with remotely controlled explosive devices and booby traps, so when the Talibans eventual take over happed, we could’ve taken out every single leader and then some at a time of our choosing, knowing that they would use it as a central chest beating location. Sixth, infiltrate the Taliban ranks with our own people so we could still have eyes and ears on the ground until such a time would be set up to evacuate them as well (or not). Seventh, remove all useable military equipment from our strong hold before leaving the country completely and rig that base with remote explosive devices. How about that for a non-chaotic withdrawal. PUTZ. And by the way, you’ve had no problem reversing other Trumps’ actions. If you thought his agreement with the Taliban was a bad idea, then why didn’t you change that idea as well? It’s ALL on you and the Biden admin.

Trump hasn’t been around for 9 months, he hasn’t caused any of this, what a bunch of hypocritcal, jackasses, So far everything this administration, has done, so far has been a dumpster fire. Hidenbiden,pathetic,sick,imbicile, has been the cause of everything, and his minions that helped him plan this disaster in Afghanistan. They all need to be removed, and after their removed arrested and charged with treason and espionage, and murder of 13 soldiers.

Biden and his Puppet Masters are 100% responsible. The Admin and liberal news can convince the few that still believe in them… that it is Trumps fault. But more and more dems supporters are waking up to their lies! Friends and family are laying out the facts to those around them proving Biden did NOT follow theTrump plan for evacuating. Trumps plan was not to leave prisons full of terrorist prisoners the way Biden did and now many are working as top officials for the Taliban. Trump was going to move them and keep them imprisoned. Trump did NOT plan to swoop down in the middle of the night…turn off electricity…and remove military support. Trumps plan was to remove Americans first and not leave ppl in panic without electricity. Trumps plan was NOT to turn over Bagram Air Base and Embassies to the Taliban. It wasn’t really a war since NO Americans killed there since Jan 2020. NOT after Trump made it clear they would be destroyed if one American was killed. They believed Trump. The Taliban was still better controlled than it was 20 yrs ago. But Biden Admin failures has opened the door for these evil terrorists ready to spread chaos NOT only in the USA but around the world. The moment they’ve been waiting for is here thanks to this evil man!  NOW…The Taliban have taken over the Norwegian Embassy in Kabul and taken to smashing wine bottles and destroying books at the establishment. Norwegian ambassador to Iran, Sugvald Hauge, said in a tweet, “Taliban has now taken over the Norwegian Embassy in Kabul. Say they will return it to us later. This is NOT going to end well and it is most definitely The JOeKER’s fault and those telling him what to read, say and do!
