According to Lindsey Graham (R-SC) — who repeatedly made excuses for Donald Trump’s numerous foreign policy blunders — President Joe Biden’s plan to remove all American troops from Afghanistan by no later than September 11 of this year will lead to another terrorist attack such as the one that took place on 9/11.
During an appearance on Fox News Tuesday evening, Graham was in full whine mode, alleging (without a shred of proof) that President Biden had been warned about pulling all U.S. forces from Afghanistan:
“Our military told President Biden that if you withdraw all of our forces, al Qaeda and ISIS will come roaring back, Afghanistan would disintegrate into civil war, and we can avoid all of that by having 3,000-5,000 American forces making sure that ISIS and al Qaeda never come back to hurt us. He rejected that advice. Afghanistan is going to deteriorate pretty rapidly, al Qaeda and ISIS are going to come back, he is paving the way for another 9/11.”

Wait a minute! According to Donald Trump, ISIS was defeated on his watch. And our forces have already been in Afghanistan for 20 years. Does Senator Graham advocate the permanent stationing of thousands of U.S. soldiers in the country? If so, when will he be volunteering for a tour of duty?
But what irked many people on social media was that Lindsey’s BFF Trump helped incite a terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol earlier this year, and they reminded him of that very fact:
Trump paved the way for January 6. Fixed it for ya, Linds.

@LindseyGrahamSC is trying to rewrite history like fascists do. The United States supported and funded the Afghan Mujahideen terrorists and Osama bin Laden in their fight against the Soviet Union so basically the United States supported and funded terrorists under Reagan.

Lindsey Graham has a very selective memory, doesn’t he? He should learn to keep his mouth shut instead of constantly reminding us just how utterly clueless and hypocritical he is.
