Hiding behind his tears — Sorry Biden’s decisions led to Kabul carnage: Goodwin

The deep grief on President Biden’s face as his eyes swelled with tears was painful to watch. But his personal suffering cannot exonerate him from the responsibility for what happened in Kabul.

The deep grief on President Biden’s face as his eyes swelled with tears was painful to watch. But his personal suffering cannot exonerate him from the responsibility for what happened in Kabul.

Nor can his obscenely shameful effort to shift the blame to former President Donald Trump and even his own military commanders be taken seriously. Biden says the buck stops with him, but he doesn’t really mean it.

When the enemy strikes with deadly results, it’s somebody else’s fault. That’s not leadership and it certainly isn’t presidential.

If he truly accepted responsibility, Biden would own up to the obvious fact that his actions played a big role in this horrific outcome. Instead, his claim that every commander agreed with him on the withdrawal plan is a bald-faced lie.

We know for certain the military argued against his hasty exit. Officers gave him alternatives and he said no because, for 50 years, Joe Biden has always known best.

Yet when things go off the rails, he dares to hide behind the generals.

That’s politics, that’s Washington. It’s not the mark of a trustworthy commander-in-chief.

The worst day for our troops in Afghanistan in a decade will never be forgotten by those Gold Star families who received that dreaded knock on the door from someone in uniform. But it is also a terrible stain on America that our brave men and women were put in such a vulnerable situation.
