Rand Paul knocks Biden on 'terrible' Afghanistan withdrawal, says we stayed 'too long'

CIA DIRECTOR, TALIBAN LEADER MEET IN KABUL, AFGHANISTAN: LIVE UPDATES

RAND PAUL: I think Biden did a terrible job in the withdrawal. So, no I don’t think it was executed very well at all.

The longer we stayed the more the expectations were, but the more complacent the Afghans grew as we fought their battles. Year after year we fought their battles and so they had to step up and when the time came—you know instead of James Madison or Monroe rallying the troops in 1812—the guy got on a plane and flew out immediately and left the country and all his soldiers laid down their arms.
