Just as we expected, the dissent cable is another nail in the coffin of Joe Biden.
This administration would love to put Afghanistan in the rearview mirror, but the loss of life of our troops and the fact that Biden left Americans behind enemy lines forbids us from allowing that to happen.
According to House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX), the dissent cables proves that Biden was blatantly ignoring the warnings of those on the ground about the imminent fall of Afghanistan, reports CNN.
Smartest Man in the Room
Joe is the smartest man in politics, just ask him. He had the audacity to imply that during his last interview.
Joe does not need to listen to anyone else because his four decades in office mean he knows more than just about everyone else… I am paraphrasing, but that is the gist of what Biden stated that day.
McCaul was finally able to view the dissent cable, which was about four pages of people that had boots on the ground warning against administration policies.
After viewing the document, McCaul stated, "The dissenters were absolutely right about everything they said, and it was a warning to the administration about what was going to happen and what they needed to do.” He added that they all "deserve a medal.
"Unfortunately, the administration didn’t heed all their warnings and we got what we got.”
He added, "I am thankful to Secretary Blinken for allowing myself and Ranking Member Meeks to view the dissent channel cable – an unprecedented occurrence. However, every member on our committee should be granted this same access.
"Although I cannot discuss the classified information in the cable, I can say the dissenters were right – and the administration should have listened. I am going to speak with Ranking Member Meeks and my Republican and Democrat colleagues on the committee to discuss our next course of action if the State Department continues to block all committee members from seeing this cable as the subpoena requested,” reports Fox News.
Rep. Greg Meeks (D-N.Y.) put a disgusting spin on this, stating that it did not reveal anything new and that it "puts to rest this whole thing about having a subpoena and the president is hiding something or whatever it is."
So, it took the threat of contempt of Congress to get to view the document, it proves your guy in the Oval Office ignored every bit of information that was coming from people closest to the situation, troops died, Americans were left behind enemy lines, military equipment abandoned, and that is your take on what you saw?
This is what utterly disgusts me about politics today… the ability to be honest is gone and it is to protect the party at all costs.
This was a devasting and very costly failure by Joe Biden, and Meeks’ only reaction is to put this to bed.
