NOTICE: Biden Tries to Shift Blame for His Mistakes in Afghanistan

While being mired hip-deep in his failures in the region, Joe Biden – not surprisingly – is trying to shift the blame for the deadly debacle in Afghanistan.

During his most recent speech on Afghanistan, even while claiming to “take responsibility” for his devastating decisions, the President still did a lot of finger-pointing and shifting the blame when it came to some specific failures.

For example, the hundreds of Americans left behind? That was their fault, not his. Biden said that those individuals were notified 19 times “with multiple warnings and offers to help them leave Afghanistan, all the way back as far as March,” adding that most of them were dual citizens, anyway.

For the rapid and “unanticipated” fall of Kabul, Biden pointed the finger at the Afghan army and said he’d instructed his team to prepare for that eventuality. Plus, he had to withdraw quickly because of the deal his predecessor, former President Donald Trump, cut last year with the Taliban. And some errors were simply unavoidable, he argued. “The bottom line is, there is no evacuation from the end of a war that you can run without the kinds of complexities, challenges, threats we faced,” Biden emphasized in a roughly 30-minute White House address. “None.”

As one might imagine, Biden spent little or no time dwelling on his own broken promises — including a vow to fly out any U.S. citizen who wished to leave — and instead delivered a defiant address to close out America’s longest war, defending his handling of the exit, pointing to “corruption and malfeasance” in the Afghan government that the U.S. spent far too long supporting, slamming his critics as downplaying the costs of the armed conflict and arguing the country must move past the “War on Terror” that began almost exactly 20 years ago.

“This decision about Afghanistan is not just about Afghanistan. It’s about ending an era of major military operations to remake other countries,” Biden said.

He then left the podium, taking no questions.

Biden’s refusal to own up to his failures and his finger-pointing is only the latest instance of the President digging his heels in on Afghanistan in the face of unprecedented waves of criticism, even from his traditional allies in the Democratic Party and the media. In fact, Biden has appeared more resolute and defensive the louder his critics became, appearing convinced that voters and history will ultimately reward him for ending the war despite the chaotic and deadly withdrawal.

“I give you my word with all of my heart. I believe this is the right decision, the wise decision, and the best decision for America,” Biden said.

Nut, not everyone in the administration shared the commander in chief’s confidence. “I am absolutely appalled and literally horrified we left Americans there,” one administration official told POLITICO anonymously. “It was a hostage rescue of thousands of Americans in the guise of a NEO [non-combatant evacuation operations], and we have failed that no-fail mission.”

Another unnamed White House official said that the mission isn’t accomplished if they left Americans behind.

  1. Typical Democratic answer to anything. They screw something up and then point the blame anywhere but to themselves. Never in my seventy-six years have I been worried about the direction of our country. We’re creating a debt that our children’s children will still be paying for. If anyone thinks we can change the climate then I can sell them a bridge that I don’t even own. Our Earth has been having climate changes for millions of years, not a one caused by humans or any other living being yet someone talked our country (ie, Democrats) to spend billions of dollars for someone to scoop it up. Until these idiots can be voted out of office the only way we will be going is downhill.

  2. This nightmare damages everything he touches and when things go terribly wrong, he blames the problem HE caused on others.. The Afghan Army did NOT cause this problem.. Trump did NOT cause this problem… Beijing Biden DID cause this problem… He needs to go.. remove him from office!!! he is NOT competent to be in office… He’s a disgrace… He is doing everything he can to rip this country apart…. Anyone who does not bow down to him, do what he wants, he attacks them with his extreme hate and lies.. God help us all as this buffoon destroys this country

  3. LISTEN UP….AS LONG as PREZ BIDEN is in the WHITE HOUSE…the CHAOS….CONF USION and ALL KINDS of EVIL will CONTINUE. GOD is ANGRY that PREZ TRUMP’S JOB was TAKEN from HIM. GOD Chose PREZ TRUMP to Be PRESIDENT of the U.S. GOD isthe RULER of MEN..KINGS….PRESIDENTS. HE has the LAST WORD. From SamuraiQueen. 😄😄😄

  4. I didn’t vote for any of them. The Democrats would slit your throat any time if it protects them and the same fools will vote for them again. So sad.

    1. Tom, you didn’t vote for them, I didn’t vote for them and if the truth ever comes out we are going to discover that they actually lost the election big time. I’m well up in age now and not in very good health but there’s one thing that going to keep me alive and that is seeing ass kicking of the Demo-Rats by Trump in the next election.
