Prominent leaders from veterans are coming together to call out the Biden administration for their pattern of leaving Americans behind in foreign countries when things turn for the worst.
His poll numbers never recovered after Joe Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Leaving Americans behind in foreign countries does not help Joe Biden, as the veterans have pointed out will hurt him in 2024.
A group of high-profile United States veterans called out Biden for his pattern of leaving Americans behind in the wake of the ongoing crisis in Sudan.
According to a report from Newsmax:
Bryan Stern, the co-founder of Project Dynamo, told the network that his private military contractors were stepping up to the table to help evacuate an estimated 16,000 Americans still trapped in civil-war-ravaged Sudan.
“Project Dynamo has operated in the last 18 months where the U.S. embassy is closed and left Americans behind. First Afghanistan, then Ukraine, now here,” Stern said on “Fox & Friends” alongside Shadow Warriors Project founder Mark Geist and Mighty Oaks Foundation founder Chad Robichaux.
“So, this pattern or tactic just sends such a terrible message not just to our people, but to the world, to say nothing of the fact that there are Americans stuck in a war zone in very terrible circumstances, and they don’t need to be there,” he added.
Stern’s comments arrive days after the State Department issued a security alert that “the uncertain security situation” in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, closed the airport and has precluded an evacuation of private U.S. citizens.
That means thousands of largely aid workers and Sudanese Americans remain stuck in the country, despite the U.S. embassy evacuating a day prior with the help of SEAL Team 6 and Army Special Forces.
It’s disgusting that Biden has left Americans behind in Sudan, and he should not get away with it.
Even mainstream media outlets expressed outrage about Biden’s Afghanistan withdrawal in 2021.
USAToday wrote this opinion piece:
“America can no longer, with a straight face, say we leave no one behind. And the people I’ve spoken with in Indiana are seething, embarrassed, ashamed.
Thirteen American servicemen and women, including a Marine from my home state of Indiana, are dead on account of this disastrous “retrograde” from Afghanistan.
Many more American citizens – more than 100 by Secretary Blinken’s rosy estimate – are still awaiting evacuation. This happened despite the president’s promise Aug. 20 that “we will get you home.”
And an undeclared number of Afghan nationals who helped Americans over the past 20 years face an uncertain future.
The self-proclaimed “most qualified person in the country” to be president has botched his first major foreign policy challenge. Strategically, the United States aimed to shift more attention to Asia; instead, our nation must now attend to extricating those we abandoned while repairing our damaged reputation among allies and adversaries.
What I have observed from the Biden administration is an inability to see around corners. Surely, there are members of his highly credentialed team who can imagine the stumbling blocks that might trip up any large-scale operation. But they are seemingly being shut out by a self-certain commander-in-chief who has been more fixated on making and meeting arbitrary historical deadlines – here, a 20th anniversary of 9/11 – than accomplishing a critical mission.”
