Adam Schiff says Afghanistan military withdrawal 'could have been handled differently'Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.,
both expressed dissatisfaction on Sunday with the unfolding of the chaotic military withdrawal from Afghanistan nearly one year ago that led to the death of 13 U.S. service members.
On Aug. 26, 2021, during the U.S. military's mass evacuation at the Kabul airport, suicide bombers killed at least 183 people, including 13 U.S. service members. The evacuation required significant cooperation from the Taliban to complete and ended a day ahead of the deadline on Aug. 30, leaving behind thousands
of U.S. citizens and tens of thousands of Afghan allies, despite Biden’s promise days earlier to "get them all out."
The bipartisan pair of congressmen reflected on the approaching one-year anniversary of the Afghanistan withdrawal
during an appearance on CBS News’ "Face the Nation," saying the Biden administration should have handled things differently.
"There was a complete lack and failure to plan," McCaul, a ranking member on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told CBS News’ Margaret Brennan. "There was no plan and there was no plan executed. And to your point, even beforehand, I think the State Department probably didn't have the resources it needed to carry out an evacuation of this size and enormity."
At the end of the Day, the Generals told Biden, NO.
Biden did not listen and 13 service members died because of this decision.
