MSNBC's Scarborough Slams Biden Over Afghanistan Withdrawal: 'A Political Disaster' (Video)
Joe Scarborough condemned President Biden’s handling of the troops
Scarborough pointed out that “most Americans did support a withdrawal from Afghanistan,” but the chaotic scenes emerging from that country are not the ones that were hoped for.
He continued, “We just can’t keep abandoning allies in the field. Donald Trump abandoned the Kurds. We’re abandoning our interpreters in Afghanistan. We just can’t keep going in, having people risk their lives and then leaving in the middle of the night.”
In a press conference on Monday, Biden said he stood his decision to withdraw U.S. military forces by the May 1 deadline rather than escalate conflict and send thousands of more troops back in. But now he’s been forced to do so, authorizing 6,000 troops to the area to assist in the evacuation of U.S. citizens and allies. After its departure mission is complete, the U.S. military will fully withdraw, with Biden saying “the buck stops with me.”
