The truth behind the Biden-Harris regime’s cataclysmic mishandling of the withdrawal from Afghanistan is coming to light in Congressional hearings and there is no longer any way for Joe Biden or Jen Psaki to stop it. The truth is out in the open, and you can’t stop the signal. Before a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley, head of US Central Command Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin were questioned by Senators Jim Inhofe and Lindsay Graham among others. Their testimony absolutely annihilated Biden’s narrative regarding his decision-making process on the withdrawal.
Biden’s Afghanistan debacle is rapidly becoming one of the most blatant and obvious lies in US Presidential History. If he had any sense of morality to speak of, he would resign immediately.
A Damning Lie And the Truth Is Coming Out:
In an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on August 18th, the now infamous exchange went like this:
Stephanopoulos asked: “Your military advisers did not tell you, ‘No, we should just keep 2,500 troops—it’s been a stable situation for the last several years, we can do that, we can continue to do that?”
“No,” Biden responded. “No one said that to me that I can recall.”
During the hearing, after much haranguing by the Republican Senators, and in spite of SecDef Lloyd Austin’s obvious attempts to shield Biden from scrutiny and criticisms the dam finally broke, and the Generals gave their recommendations to Congress, which they had previously given Biden. This established firmly that he has been lying to the American people, since day one of the catastrophe.
“I recommended we keep 2,500 troops in Afghanistan,” Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, head of U.S. Central Command, testified before the Senate To not do so, McKenzie said, would “inevitably” lead to the collapse of Afghan security forces “and, eventually, the Afghan government.”
General Milley confirmed that his assessment was: a “hasty withdrawal” could trigger the collapse of Kabul, which is precisely what we saw. And even Defense Secretary Austin was forced to concede, that this information “was received by the president and considered by the president, for sure”.
Senator Inhofe received the ultimate clarification, according to The Post Millennial he asked,
“Sir, I was present when that discussion occurred. And I’m confident that the President heard all the recommendations and listened to him very thoughtfully,” McKenzie stated.
With this key information in hand, Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) came to the only logical conclusion: “The president of the United States lied to the American people”. Senator Graham captured the feelings of most people in the room and summarized the situation well also: that Biden’s decision to end the Afghanistan war, particularly the manner in which he did so was “against sound military advice.”
Regrettably, until and if the Republicans can gain commanding majorities in the House and Senate, this will come to nothing. There is no set of circumstances that could result in Congressional Democrats siding with Republicans against Joe Biden. The type of bipartisanship that ended the Presidency of Richard Nixon for example, simply cannot exist in today’s polarized environment. Any hope rests in the 2022 elections and even then we would be left with Kamala Harris stepping into her own as the first female President, albeit an unelected one, unless she is implicated as well, something she has been obsessed with avoiding. Indeed the rise of Harris now seems inevitable…
