The pullout from Afghanistan and its ensuing chaos was a failure by the president and will have global consequences, Representatives Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and Claudia Tenney, R-N.Y., told Newsmax Monday.
“This is a failure by the Commander-In-Chief. The buck stops with him. The failure is his. Eight months into his administration, it’s very very clear that he made these decisions, or at least he allowed them to be made, while he was on vacation and ignored the repercussions, even as we were given warning by allies in the region,” Issa told Newsmax’s “Stinchfield.”
After host Grant Stinchfield noted that the pullout is about much more than an Afghani civil war and that China “is salivating right now,” Tenney added that “there have been actual news accounts of China meeting with the Taliban, even though, you know, the Taliban and Islamic countries around the region know, that the Chinese are one of the only countries, probably the only country, that’s slaughtering the Uighurs, who are Muslims, but it doesn’t matter because this is utilitarian. It’s about power and it’s about money.
