[Ed. – If the plan had not failed so bigly, it would have been all his.]
President Joe Biden issued a statement on Sunday regarding the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan, reaffirming his administration’s plans and placing blame on the plan he “inherited from [his] predecessor,” former President Donald Trump, and the inability of the Afghan military to hold their own country.
Biden began the statement by describing how he and his national security team were working “to protect our interests and values as we end our military mission in Afghanistan.”
Among the publicly announced plans, Biden mentioned the deployment of approximately 5,000 troops “to make sure we can have an orderly and safe drawdown of U.S. personnel and other allied personnel, and an orderly and safe evacuation of Afghans who helped our troops during our mission and those at special risk from the Taliban advance.”
