Letter to the editor: Biden bails on Afghanistan withdrawal

The 45th, Joe Biden

Following the event on Aug. 15, 2021 when Kabul was overrun by the Taliban, the world began to question, where’s Joe? The fact of the matter is, he was on his way to Camp David for a vacation.

 He abandoned his country for 72 hours leaving the White House’s administration to evacuate U.S. citizens, Afghan civilians, and members of our military, according to The Washington Post. Biden’s repulsive disappearance left sinister blood all over his hands. Marine Corps Gen. Kenneth F. McKensie Jr., commander of the United States Central Command reported to the Pentagon that a single explosive device killed at least 170 Afghan civilians and 13 U.S. troops, according to NPR.

In the event of criticizing Biden, it seems many people like to forget or stutter over the facts. Maybe on CNN or in the New York Times, this is the case. 

Let me affirm the facts. On Feb. 29, 2020, under the current term of President Donald Trump, an agreement was made between the U.S. and the Taliban which declared the United States would fully withdraw from Afghanistan by May 1, 2021. Trump made it eminently clear that the United States troops will be in harm’s way if not withdrawn. In his speech given at the Conservative Political Active Conference, he declares, “Taliban’s action against Al-Qaeda and other terrorists could threaten us.” 

Further down the timeline, according to FactCheck.org, Biden becomes the current president and on March 25, 2021 during a press conference, he says, “it’s going to be hard to meet the May 1 deadline. Just for tactical reasons, it’s hard to get those troops out. If we leave, we’re going to do so in a safe and orderly way.”

Just for tactical reasons? Safe and orderly way, Joe Biden? Repeat that phrase to the 13 families who lost their children and the 170 dead Afghan civilians because you chose to wait 133 days to get them out. Repeat that to the United States; the best, most patriotic, and military loving country in the world who had heavy hearts when we lost these military members to the enemy. If only Biden had the United States Military in its best interest and was determined to get our troops out by Trump’s deadline, we’d still have those 13 troops and civilians with us. 

I’d like to take a minute to remember the 13 heroic U.S. troops and the 170 Afghan civilians who were slaughtered by the enemy due to Biden’s truly disgusting lack of care for this country. 

All we can do is sincerely have faith that one day, this country will be great again.
