Americans were stunned at how Joe Biden handled the Afghanistan withdrawal. The hasty move allowed the Taliban to quickly take over. What made it even worse was how our government failed to effectively evacuate Americans—leaving thousands stranded and in peril.
Of course, the entire time Biden claimed he and his people were in complete control and couldn’t have foreseen what happened because the intelligence was so bad. But he botched it like no other president ever has.
Many have speculated over how Biden could have botched this plan. Especially after Trump came up with one that should have been effective and smooth. Now, leaked documents reveal that Biden’s administration was shockingly unprepared. They were scrambling to even handle the evacuation.
As Kabul stood on the precipice of falling into the hands of the Taliban after nearly 20 years of U.S. occupation, documents showed that several top administration officials had not yet established a strategy for exiting the country and evacuating the thousands of American citizens and allies still left…
“Outsiders were frustrated and suspicious the administration was having plenty of meetings but was stuck in bureaucratic inertia and lacked urgency until the last minute. While the word ‘immediately’ peppers the document, it’s clear officials were still scrambling to finalize their plans — on the afternoon of Aug. 14.”
Leak documents show that Biden’s administration was unprepared to evacuate Afghans and Americans as the Taliban took over. The newly released documents underscore just how badly the withdrawal was planned—if it was planned at all. These documents show officials were scrambling, unsure of what to do even at the last minute.
This should surprise no one, considering how badly the entire operation went. Biden ignored warnings that the Taliban were preparing to take over. He pulled our troops at the very worst time, as the Taliban was fighting-ready. The group took over the country over a period of two weeks.
As that was happening, the administration was unprepared for removing allies from the country. They watched as the Taliban was marching for Kabul, but had no clue how to handle it. Even before the airport was shut down and chaos ensued, Biden’s staff were running around like chickens with their heads cut off.
Biden’s staff are trying to do damage control to this leak. They are claiming these are “cherry-picked” notes and are not accurate. But they are still real documents from the administration. Which means Biden’s staff was scrambling and did not know what they were doing.
