The American people are very forgiving, but not when it comes to leaving Americans behind enemy lines.
And that’s just what Joe Biden did.
He was in such a rush to withdraw from Afghanistan that he bungled the exit and left Americans trapped there. It’s unbelievable.
A new poll shows that Americans are very unhappy about it.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Shame: 70% call Afghanistan withdrawal a ‘national humiliation’
Seven out of 10 Americans feel shameful over President Joe Biden’s bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan that left behind hundreds of Americans and naturalized citizens in the hands of the Taliban.
The latest Rasmussen Reports survey said that 70% agreed that the Biden withdrawal was a “national humiliation,” with 51% strongly agreeing with that sentiment.
And the feeling is not only one of shame and anger but bipartisanship. The survey outfit said that 56% of Democrats also agree that it was something to be ashamed of.
Part of the concerns voters apparently have about the quick evacuation after the Taliban took Kabul is fear that Americans will be taken hostage and used as pawns in a diplomatic tussle.
Rasmussen asked likely voters about that and even more, 73%, said that they feel it is likely Americans will be taken hostage. On that question, more Democrats had concerns, with 63% believing it likely Americans will be taken as hostages by the Taliban.
Can you even imagine the reaction from the media if Trump had done this?
We must pray for the safety of those Americans left behind and the good people of many nationalities who have not yet secured safe passage from Afghanistan.

The Taliban controls Afghanistan, our allies don’t trust us, 13 U.S. service members were killed, and hundreds were left behind.
If Biden and Blinken think that’s an “extraordinary success,” what do they think failure looks like?

Joe Biden must be held accountable for this.
