Mike Rogers said that America had turned away from women and children in the Islamic Republic.
The absence of U.S. President Joe Biden’s plan to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan has led to the fact that the radical Taliban movement is seizing more and more territories of this Islamic republic. This opinion was expressed on Friday by the senior Republican of the Armed Services Committee of the House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress, Mike Rogers (from Alabama).
“When President Biden and Vice President [Kamala] Harris took office, they proclaimed: “America is back.” But all we see from the Biden-Harris administration is that America has turned its back on women and children in Afghanistan,” the influential Republican said in a written statement.
In his opinion, “naively and without any plan, President Biden announced that he would withdraw [U.S.] troops from Afghanistan by September 11, the 20th anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on American soil.” “Because President Biden did not have a plan, more and more [American] military personnel are returning to Afghanistan, our embassy is being evacuated, and the Taliban are rapidly advancing throughout the country,” Rogers believes.
He is confident that the Washington administration will not be able to withdraw American troops from the Islamic Republic by September 11; the number of the military contingent will only grow against the background of the Taliban’s advance to Kabul. “Mr. President, I ask you again:” What is your plan?” the congressman concluded.
