Rep. Mike Turner: Amidst Afghanistan horror show, Biden seems completely oblivious to his own failures

Our troops have been successful in their mission and deserve our deepest gratitude for the sacrifices they have made for this country. 

Along the way, many of them formed strong relationships with the Afghan people who stood by our side, and they feel a deep sense of responsibility for those who showed courage in standing up against the Taliban to fight alongside U.S. forces.

While it may be time for the conflict in Afghanistan to come to a close, President Joe Biden’s incompetence and lack of a withdrawal strategy betrays both our allies and the men and women who fought. Biden not only made the decision to recklessly abandon our Afghan allies, but left American citizens, without protection, stranded as the Taliban took the country. 


While getting out of Afghanistan is indeed in America’s interest, Biden has once again created a humanitarian crisis that could have been avoided.

Former Obama Defense Secretary Robert Gates previously said that Biden has been “wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades,” highlighting exactly how dangerous a Biden presidency would be to our national security. Unfortunately for the American people, he has been proven correct.

Biden seems completely oblivious to his own failures. Instead of showing leadership and owning the situation before him, Biden refuses to take responsibility for yet another crisis he created.
