AMERICAN MOM MAKES URGENT PLEA TO BIDEN FROM AFGHANISTAN: ‘WE ARE STRANDED, PLEASE HELP US’
MITCH MCCONNELL: This is without doubt one of the best international coverage disasters in American historical past. I feel it is vital to recollect the place we had been a couple of months in the past earlier than the president’s reckless resolution to go away. We solely had 2,500 troops there. We had plenty of single American personnel, navy personnel in a yr. The Taliban, the barbarians weren’t accountable for the nation. We had been holding the lid on and Al Qaeda was not there.
So the choice to tug out was a gargantuan mistake, for my part. Having made that call, you’d need to conclude these guys could not manage a two-car funeral. I imply, this is the place we’re. The president must overlook in regards to the August 31st deadline.
We have to ship sufficient American personnel, navy personnel to rescue our individuals, and by the best way, there are extra American troopers there now than earlier than the president made the choice to go away. Prolong the deadline. Get outdoors the perimeter, ensure that each single American who needs to go away is ready to get out with our help, and our Afghan allies.
