The top military commander in Kabul, Afghanistan during the historic US withdrawal from the country blamed the Biden White House, Jill Biden and even The Vatican for the shocking disaster last year. Rear Adm. Peter Vasely, the top U.S. commander in Kabul during the evacuation, left the blame squarely at the feet of the radical Biden White House.
** 13 Americans were killed by an Islamic suicide bomber at the Kabul Airport during the final days of US occupation in the country.
** 14,000 Americans were left stranded and abandoned by the Biden Regime in Afghanistan.
Joe Biden left $80 billion in US military weapons for the Taliban terrorists on the way out of the country.
** Only a few of the 100,000 “refugees” who left the airport were vetted before they were shipped off to America.
** They even left the military dogs there to fend for themselves.
It was the greatest US military embarrassment and disaster in our history.
The Daily Mail reported:
Rear Adm. Peter Vasely, the top U.S. commander in Kabul during the evacuation, said that the withdrawal was made more chaotic by people like First Lady Jill Biden, Pope Francis, the White House and Congress calling in for special favors to help get out certain people.
Vasely said the Pentagon was being pulled in all different directions from Biden officials, lawmakers, members of the media and even the Vatican as it carried out the largest evacuation since Vietnam ahead of the Taliban takeover.
He called the requests a ‘distraction’ that created competition for ‘already stressed resources.’
Vasely’s declassified remarks, made public by a FOIA request from the Washington Post, came during testimony for a U.S. Army investigation into the Aug. 26 suicide bombing that killed 13 U.S. service members and an estimated 170 Afghan civilians.
The Pentagon’s standard priority had been to first evacuate American citizens, then lawful permanent residents, then Afghans who aided the U.S. throughout the war.
Demands poured in to the U.S. operations center in Kabul through emails, text messages and phone calls in such a high volume that Vasely, a Navy SEAL, felt the need to take certain forces away from the established rescue plan to form a ‘coordination cell’ to work on the special requests from Washington and beyond.
‘You had everyone from the White House down with a new flavor of the day for prioritization,’ Vasely told Army investigators.
