Graham: Biden's Withdrawal Leaves America Weak And At Risk For Attack
The Biden administration recently released a new report on the Afghanistan withdrawal, and its officials are blaming former President Donald Trump.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said that the report is a "political whitewash."
Anchor of Fox News Sunday, Shannon Bream said, "We got the report this week which said President Biden’s choices how to withdraw were constrained by conditions created by his predecessor. He said this special immigrant visa program had been starved with resources, and the Taliban had been emboldened by engaging in peace talks without including our allies. They talk about the release of 5,000 Taliban fighters from prison. Is it fair to say any of those things handcuffed the Biden administration’s ability to make a smooth withdrawal?"
Graham answered, "Well, some of the things President Trump did I disagreed with, but he didn’t withdraw. This report is a political whitewash by the Biden administration to shift blame."
Graham continued, adding that the Biden administration is lying to the American public.
"When the Biden administration tells you there are no terrorists in Afghanistan, they are lying," Graham said.
Then Graham issued a warning, saying America should expect another 9/11 type event due to Biden's bad leadership and America's current weak state.
"There’s a lethal cocktail forming, rise of terrorism, Afghanistan, a broken border here in the United States. It’s only a matter of time until there’s another 9/11 if we don’t change policy," Graham said. "My view of what happened in Afghanistan by Biden was he paved the way for another 9/11."
