So we can't blame Biden for leaving a Jew behind and call him an anti-Semite?  ;)
Well, if he wouldn't have left him behind then they wouldn't have needed to get involved :P

What's on second, and why can't we blame Biden for stuff and call him names?

It was a rhetorical question. Of course you can blame him and call him names.
Have you read this thread? Some are more concerned about pushing their political agenda than honoring our fallen.

Way too many of those people all over. Part of why it is important to never join a team

122k+ evacuated. You might agree with him but you have to give him credit for the massive air-lift. Largest in history?

A. What are the numbers based off?  YTD? Since the commitment to withdraw?
B. They airlifted random Afghans
C. They left some Americans stranded over there.


So yes, give credit for the largest botched airlift in history 👏

I don't expect to you look at it any differently.

How about him getting credit for ending the longest war? Lets hear that spin?  :)

Is it difficult to retreat from a war with casualties as you're running away?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

He had a timeline and stuck to it. Calling it running away is kind of silly.

What else do you call leaving hundreds of Americans behind because you couldn't offer them secure passage out?
They have yet to explain why they didn't hold onto Bagram, which was a defensible airport, over using an indefensible commercial airport that cost us 13 service members and made an orderly evacuation impossible.

He said he took the advice of his military. Don't shoot the messenger.  :)

Nothing is defensible when it comes to terrorist. Both airports would have had mobs of people that were indefensible.

He said he took the advice of his military.
Which was contradicted by military leaders off the record to the NYT and WSJ. They warned him what would happen and he was not willing to listen.
So no, I don't see any need to credit him for this. It's not hard to wave a white flag.
