House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy demanded that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi call a session of the House of Representatives in the wake of the terrorist attack that killed 13 military personnel in Afghanistan.
In that session, lawmakers would vote on a bill to block the withdrawal of troops until all citizens have left that country, Fox News reported Aug. 27.
“Nancy Pelosi needs to bring us back into session, bring up this bill, move this deadline and make sure every single American is able to leave Afghanistan,” McCarthy stated.
He also raised the danger posed by the resurgence of ISIS in Afghanistan and the initial release of 5,000 prisoners, who now knew the ease with which they could enter through the U.S. southern border.
“As you’ve reported, he’s opened our border. Long before this collapse in Afghanistan, we have been catching people on the terrorist watch list coming across our border from Yemen,” he added.
He also said, “We’re less than three weeks from the anniversary of 9/11 and this administration has put America in this position, this is unacceptable.”
On the other hand, the devastating effects of the attacks on the Kabul airport on August 26 could be even more serious.
For author, Virginia Kruta, “It is too early to tell just how devastating President Joe Biden’s impact will be on troop and veteran morale,” and she mentions the changes towards the ‘woke’ movement and the left-wing policies he promoted since the beginning of his administration.
In this sense, the renowned presenter, Tucker Carlson, alerted Americans to the dangers that Biden’s changes in the military could represent, which should not be weakened but ready to “fight and win wars.”
And he emphasized, “It is by far the most important. A weak military means no country, period,” according to the video below.
He also said, “The rest of us depend on the U.S. military to protect our families and to protect the country itself.”
He added: “Joe Biden doesn’t see it that way. Finding the most effective military pilots or infantry officers or SEAL teams is not his priority, it’s not even close to his priority.”
Instead, he’s all about identity politics and stuff: “It is not fine if your only job is to protect the United States from people who want to kill the rest of us. That is the worst kind of dereliction of duty,” Tucker went on to say.
Again, Kruta stresses that while the military wanted to get out of Afghanistan, they did not agree to do so as determined by the Biden administration.
“They argued that pulling troops out first left many American citizens and Afghan allies—some of whom were marked for death because they had assisted U.S. forces—vulnerable to being targeted or even executed by Taliban fighters,” Kruta concluded.
