Several Americans question if Joe Biden’s irresponsible and foolish leadership was not intended to harm as many Americans and Afghans as possible as a favor to the Taliban, with whom he had negotiated.
During a Foreign Affairs Committee meeting on Wednesday, details from Biden’s insane withdrawal were made public through the testimony of a Marine who was on the ground during the chaotic American retreat; what he said will be etched into the annals of history as the greatest betrayal of our military personnel the world may have ever witnessed, in what is being called Biden’s second Impeachable Offense.
Sgt. Tyler Vargas-Andrews, a U.S. Marine Corps sniper who served in Afghanistan during the surrender to Taliban forces, testified before Congress on Wednesday in an emotional recounting of the events, during which he witnessed individuals kill themselves and was nearly murdered himself.
Vargas-Andrews, pausing to collect his composure, described to Congress the horrifying scene before him.
Fox News said that Vargas-Andrews was moved to tears as he described how commanders rejected his warnings about a potential suicide bomber only minutes before the catastrophic explosion at Kabul airport during the American pullout from Afghanistan.
“Over the communication network we passed that there was a potential threat and that there was an IED attack imminent, this was as serious as it could get. I request engagement authority while my team leader was ready on the M110 semi-automatic sniper system. The response, leadership did not have engagement authority for us, do not engage,” Vargas-Andrews recounted.
After psychological operations established that the guy matched the description of the potential bomber, the Marines requested their battalion commander to report to the tower. They submitted proof to the commander while assuring him of “ease of fire” on the suspect and requested permission to fire, but were never granted permission.
“Very simply, we were disregarded. No one was held accountable for our safety, despite disregarding our knowledge, stated Vargas-Andrews.
