BYRON, Ill. (WTVO) — Speaking in Byron on Wednesday, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R) says he’s angry and upset that the U.S. pulled out of Afghanistan.
On Tuesday, President Joe Biden defended his decision to leave the war torn country.
Kinzinger said the planning and execution of the evacuation out of the Kabul airport was some of the worst military decision-making he’s ever seen.
“The American people deserved far better in an exit in Afghanistan than to have the last vision be us begging the Taliban to protect us, and having our 13 people killed by ISIS-K. Donald Trump is responsible for a terrible negotiation, of a terrible deal. Joe Biden is responsible for following through on that deal,” Kinzinger said.
Biden said the evacuations helped more than 120,000 people leave Afghanistan, but as many as 200 Americans, who wished to leave, are still there.
