Marine On Disastrous Afghanistan Withdrawal: ‘An Inexcusable Lack Of Accountability And Negligence’

Joe Biden

On Wednesday, Marine Sgt. Tyler Vargas-Andrews described the “catastrophic” withdrawal from Afghanistan organized by the Biden administration, saying it was a result of “an inexcusable lack of accountability and negligence.”

Vargas-Andrews, who was one of the many injured in the ISIS-K suicide bombing at the Kabul airport that killed 13 U.S. service members during the withdrawal, made his comments during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing about the Biden administration’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. 

“Our military members and veterans deserve our best because that is what we give to America. The withdrawal [from Afghanistan] was a catastrophe in my opinion. And there was an inexcusable lack of accountability and negligence,” he said. “The 11 Marines, 1 sailor, and 1 soldier that were murdered that day have not been answered for.”

“The troops on the ground had to tirelessly work to control the crowds, day and night,” he added. “The Department of State staff at HKIA [the Kabul airport] would completely shut down processing Afghans every evening and into the morning, leaving ground forces with a nightmare.”

The Biden administration responded to the ISIS-K terrorist attack with a drone strike on a suspected ISIS member. However, as revealed in a report from the New York Times, the man targeted was actually “Zemari Ahmadi, a longtime worker for a U.S. aid group.”

The Biden administration’s drone strike ended up killing 10 civilians, including 7 children, – and zero terrorists. The Biden administration initially claimed that there were no civilian casualties.
