Pompeo on Afghanistan: We’ve ‘Lost Two Decades’ Because of Biden
'It was anything but orderly and safe, as he laid out'
former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called Democrat Joe Biden’s withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan an “abysmal failure."
Biden has since faced massive backlash from both sides of the aisle after the Taliban took control of the country.
Pompeo said Biden's action would have “significant ramifications in years to come.
He added that because of Biden, the United States has “gone backward” 20 years.
“It is pretty clear that the failure of this administration to properly execute their strategic vision, their strategic vision obviously was to get out of Afghanistan, to execute it in a way that would have secured American freedom, protected us, gotten civilians out, all, just the blocking and tackling of American security has been an abysmal failure,” Pompeo told host Hugh Hewitt.
“And I’m sure we’ll talk about it, but this has significant ramifications for America’s national security, our place in the world that will be a long time in trying to figure out how to get back from.”
“Now, we’ve gone backward,” he continued.
“We probably lost two decades as a result of the way that President Biden conducted this withdrawal."

"It was anything but orderly and safe, as he laid out.”
Neon Nettle reported that a new poll revealed the American public now believes Biden is to blame for the collapse of Afghanistan and not President Donald Trump.
Americans are not buying the Biden administration's attempts to shift the blame onto Trump for the Taliban seizing control of the country.
According to the SurveyMonkey/The Daily Wire poll, 36 percent of Americans believe that the current crisis in Afghanistan is Joe Biden's fault.
Meanwhile, 21 percent blame Donald Trump.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy described Afghanistan crisis as ‘the greatest disaster’ in the nation’s history.
This is one of the greatest disasters in the history of this nation, and it is going to do damage for us for decades to come," he said.
Earlier this week, a senior Taliban commander said Afghanistan would be ruled by an Islamic government guided by Sharia law and with "no democratic system at all."
