Gold Star Father to Biden: Stop Blaming Trump, 'You’re Culpable' for Kabul Bombings
'You alone. The buck stops at your desk.'
The father of a fallen U.S. Army corporal killed in Afghanistan demanded Joe Biden take full responsibility for the Kabul terror attacks that killed 13 U.S. service members last week.
Gold Star father Craig Gross wrote:
“I just want the families to know that we are here for you. We have been through what you’re going to go through, and it doesn’t end."
“There is no such thing as closure with this with Gold Star families,” Gross confessed during an appearance on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.”
“And yesterday [Thursday] was a day that basically opened up a lot of wounds for us Gold Star families. We all remember that knock at the door.
"We all remember when our Blue Star became a Gold Star.”
“My heart goes out to the 13 families that are going to have to endure a tremendous amount of grief literally for the rest of their lives,” he added.
Gross scolded Biden but also said he would pray he fixes the Afghanistan disaster.
“My message to the president of the United States of America is this: Mr. President, I will continue to pray for you,” Gross said.
“I will continue to pray for your administration – that somehow you will find the wisdom from God to get us out of this horrific mess that, Mr. President, you have gotten us into.”
“And please quit blaming this on the former president of the United States of America. You are culpable,” the Gold Star father said.
“You alone. The buck stops at your desk.
"And I would wish that you would quit blaming this on other people, take the responsibility, quit passing the buck, and get on with your job and do what we hired you to do.”
“We do not work for you, Mr. President,” he continued.
“You work for us. And as Americans, we demand that justice be done and that the right thing be done.
"And we know what that is, and you know what it is.”
Last week, another father of a U.S. Marine, killed in the terrorist attack, slammed Biden, saying he "turned his back" on American troops.
Young U.S. Marine Kareem Nikoui of California was among 13 U.S. service members who died in the suicide bombing this week that left an estimated 200 people dead.
"I blame my own military leaders…"
"Biden turned his back on him. That’s it.”
