The Biden White House Thursday released a report on the disastrous 2021 US withdrawal from Afghanistan by blaming former President Donald Trump’s administration and did not take any responsibility for its role in the rushed evacuation mission despite the deaths of 13 US service members and hundreds of Afghans.
The report was released as President Joe Biden slipped out the front door of the White House to a waiting helicopter, departing Washington to spend the Easter holiday weekend at Camp David.
The review blames the Trump administration for pledging to the Taliban that the US would leave Afghanistan by May 2021 as part of the Doha agreement — a move that supposedly left his successor no option but to pull American forces out.
Trump fired back on social media with a blistering screed saying: “These Morons in the White House, who are systematically destroying our Country, headed up by the biggest Moron of them all, Hopeless Joe Biden, have a new disinformation game they are playing – Blame ‘TRUMP’ for their grossly incompetent SURRENDER in Afghanistan. I watched this disaster unfold just like everyone else. I saw them take out the Military FIRST, GIVE $85 Billion of military equipment, allow killing of our soldiers, and leave Americans behind. Biden is responsible, no one else!”
And as the Easter weekend begins this Good Friday, this is another story that will vanish without full examination of the facts, which was the sole purpose of releasing it when the Biden White House did. To bury it.
