    Just 3 weeks later, true horrors of Biden's Afghanistan fiasco are surreal

    The list of dishonesty, deceit and deception gets longer and longer.

    Just 3 weeks later, true horrors of Biden's Afghanistan fiasco are surreal

    Despite repeated attempts by the Biden administration to portray the withdrawal as an "extraordinary success," the facts point to a much different story. This has been an unmitigated series of costly failures accompanied by dishonesty, deceit and deception at the highest levels of the United States government.

    Apart from the loss of 13 service members, and the loss of hundreds of other innocent lives, the greatest cost has been the loss of the trust and confidence of the American people. Here is a quick look at what we know today.

    Abandoning Bagram Air Base and the decision to relinquish the security of Kabul to the Taliban, cost the lives of US service members. It was the close proximity of U.S. forces to the Abbey gate that led to many of the casualties....

    The promise to keep U.S. troops in Afghanistan until the last Americans were out was broken....

    Bidenís denial that his top advisers warned against a complete U.S. military withdrawal is not accurate....

    The American people have been misled regarding the reaction of our allies....

    The Biden administration made public commitments to help Afghan allies who had helped the U.S. during the war, but the Department of State actually blocked support....

    The administrationís "ridged vetting process" of Afghan evacuees is failing....

    The claim that $84 million of left-behind weapons and military equipment does not represent a strategic threat to the U.S. or our allies is false....

    The Biden administration is proposing $64 million more in aid to Afghanistan that will most certainly go directly into the hands of terrorists....
    Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.
