Unbelievable: Biden White House Blames Trump for Botched Afghanistan Withdrawal

Picture this: after 20 long years of conflict, the US is finally pulling out of Afghanistan.

But instead of a smooth exit, chaos erupts.

Desperate people cling to planes, and a deadly bombing rocks Kabul airport.

You’d think the administration in charge would step up and take responsibility, right?

Well, guess again.

In a classic move that seems all too familiar, the Biden White House is busy pointing fingers. And who’s their target? None other than former President Trump, of course.

You might be wondering if there’s any truth to their claims.

Did Trump really leave Biden with an impossible situation? Or is this just another ploy to avoid accountability?

After all, we’ve seen our fair share of political blame games over the years.

Surprisingly, the media is picking up on this story. And their reports might just confirm what you’ve been suspecting all along.

According to NBC News:

The White House on Thursday released a report about the decisions made regarding the 2021 U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, including the bombing at the Kabul airport that killed 13 U.S. service members.

The 12-page report by the National Security Council summarizes the administration’s assessment of the withdrawal and largely blamed former President Donald Trump’s administration for the chaos that unfolded as U.S. troops were leaving and as Americans and Afghans evacuated from the country. The Taliban took over the country’s government and have remained in power.

“President Biden’s choices for how to execute a withdrawal from Afghanistan were severely constrained by conditions created by his predecessor,” the report said.

Similar reports on the withdrawal — prepared by the Pentagon and the State Department with classified material — are being shared with lawmakers on Capitol Hill following requests from congressional committees, officials said Thursday.

When Trump took office in 2017, more than 10,000 U.S. troops remained in Afghanistan, the report said, and he continued to order drawdowns over his final year in office, bringing the total down to about 2,500.

But the Trump administration “provided no plans for how to conduct the final withdrawal or to evacuate Americans and Afghan allies,” the White House said. “President Biden had committed to ending the war in Afghanistan, but when he came into office he was confronted with difficult realities left to him by the Trump Administration.”

The White House said that the lack of communication from the Trump administration underscores why effective coordination for the transition process is critical “especially when it comes to complex military operations,” the summary stated. Fueled by Trump’s false claims that he had been denied re-election by rampant fraud, his administration largely refused to conduct traditional transition communications ahead of Biden taking office.

Biden and his team were “well aware of the challenges posed by withdrawing from a warzone” after 20 years, the White House said, and while the Trump administration left a target date for leaving Afghanistan, it provided “no plan for executing it.”

Biden campaigned on a “return to normal” and on his “foreign policy experience.”

Well, if his foreign policy experience is so good, then why didn’t he put that so-called experience to use?

Instead, he just blamed Trump for the botched Afghanistan withdrawal…

Of course, we shouldn’t be surprised since this was an internal review by the Biden administration.

Instead of a review by Congress or a third party, Biden’s own team reviewed their own failures.

Do you think they were objective and fair in their assessment?

The Associated Press has more details:

President Joe Biden’s administration on Thursday laid the blame on his predecessor, President Donald Trump, for the deadly and chaotic 2021 withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan that brought about some of the darkest moments of Biden’s presidency.

The White House publicly released a 12-page summary of the results of the so-called “ hotwash ” of U.S. policies around the ending of the nation’s longest war, taking little responsibility for its own actions and asserting that Biden was “severely constrained” by Trump’s decisions.

It does acknowledge that the evacuation of Americans and allies from Afghanistan should have started sooner, but blames the delays on the Afghan government and military, and on U.S. military and intelligence community assessments.

The brief document was drafted by the National Security Council, rather than by an independent entity, with input from Biden himself. The administration said detailed reviews conducted by the State Department and the Pentagon, which the White House said would be transmitted privately to Congress on Thursday, were highly classified and would not be released publicly.

Of course, we all know that the mainstream media won’t report the truth.

So it’s up to us to expose this blame game.
