I can’t believe what I heard from the State Department briefing podium by Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman.— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) August 18, 2021
She went through all of her efforts to improve the lives of Afghan women going back to 1997 and now believes that those words matter.
The Biden Administration has abandoned Afghan women!— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) August 18, 2021
The fate that awaits Afghan women, at the hands of the Taliban, is a direct result of the Biden Administration’s failure to adequately plan for an ill-conceived withdrawal.
The audacity to talk about how much she cares for Afghan women – in light of the actions of the Biden Administration – is beyond shameless.— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) August 18, 2021
The best thing that can happen for Afghan women is if those in charge of this debacle at the State Department resign and be replaced by more competent individuals.— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) August 18, 2021
The War on Terror did not build lasting peaceful nations in the Middle East.— Being Libertarian (@beinlibertarian) August 19, 2021
It built Northern Virginia.
Effectively, Afghanistan cost the GOP any chance of ever winning Virginia ever again.

The only time I’ve seen the media try and portray Biden in a bad light is when he ended a war https://t.co/e7bavW0164— Keith Woods ?? (@KeithWoodsYT) August 19, 2021
The Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction found 30% of $63 billion in expenses examined was lost to fraud and waste. If the cost of the whole war was $2 trillion, a rough calculation for the overall amount lost might be $600 billion: https://t.co/B8YJXzjLwZ— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) August 19, 2021

A plurality of Democrats opposed withdrawing troops from Afghanistan under Trump because… Trump. The inverse of this effect is happening right now with Republicans under Biden— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) August 19, 2021

Breaking Points has been great on the Afghanistan withdrawal.
The entire media from FOX News to MSNBC has been howling with outrage for a week now about the “tragedy” of the “botched” withdrawal from Afghanistan. The same people had almost nothing to say about Afghanistan at the height of the war when Obama was president. As long as we were pumping billions of dollars into Afghanistan and flying home caskets, it was fine.
“Joe Biden once snarled “F–k that” when asked if the US had an obligation to protect Afghans from the Taliban, according to newly resurfaced reports.
The commander-in-chief allegedly made the callous remark back in 2010 when he was vice president, while speaking to US diplomat Richard Holbrooke.
At the time, Biden reportedly was arguing that the US should leave Afghanistan despite the humanitarian costs, including the potential erosion of women’s rights.
“F–k that. We don’t have to worry about that,” he allegedly told Holbrooke. “We did it in Vietnam. Nixon and Kissinger got away with it.” …”
There was chaos at the Kabul airport for ONE DAY.
It is not because the Taliban was harming Americans. It was because the Pentagon and the “intelligence community” had so severely overestimated the competence and willingness to fight of their fake army. The GOP position on Afghanistan is now that we should have occupied the country forever and gone to war with the Taliban to prop up the fake government and women’s rights.
