Will The Biden Administration Finally Be Held Accountable For Afghanistan?


10 views

The GOP is hopeful that their newly announced investigation into the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan will finally hold the Biden administration to account.

After the Biden administration violated the terms originally set by President Trump by forestalling the withdrawal of U.S. troops past the mutually agreed-upon date, the Taliban took it as a sign that the entire deal was off.

This directly led to the deaths of multiple U.S. soldiers and scores of Afghani civilians.

Aside from the needless death and collateral damage, entire weapons caches were left—including a fully functional Air Force, something the Taliban did not have until the Biden administration’s disastrous withdrawal.

Despite claiming otherwise, the Biden administration also left both American citizens and Afghani allies stranded in Afghanistan, with many still stuck behind enemy lines to this very day.

Lt. Gen. Flynn had this to say about the disastrous withdrawal from the mountainous country:

According to Western Journal:

Comer pledged that “under a Republican majority, the Biden Administration’s obstruction of this investigation will be met with the power of the gavel. We owe it to the American people to provide answers, transparency, and accountability. … We will leave no stone unturned as we seek answers for the American people.”

To this end, the incoming chairman fired off a series of blistering letters to the following administration officials, demanding documents and other information related to the Oversight Committee’s probe:

• Lloyd Austin, secretary of defense.
• Jake Sullivan, national security adviser to Biden.
• Samantha Power, administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development.
• Alejandro Mayorkas, secretary of homeland security.
• Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
• Antony Blinken, secretary of state.

 

Newsmax adds:

Also, Republicans are requesting information from DHS about Operation Allies Welcome, and the vetting and relocation process for refugees; and from USAID, GOP officials are looking into program closures and any USAID programs operating in the country.
