Biden Misses Congressional Deadline

Biden Misses Congressional Deadline

( – The catastrophic pullout from Afghanistan might be the Biden administration’s biggest blunder so far, and it seems the White House still hasn’t managed to sort out the mess.

On December 6, Senator Rob Portman (R-OH), the senior Republican on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, revealed the administration missed a November 30 deadline for submitting a report on the evacuation of Kabul.

On September 30, Congress passed a resolution requiring the administration to give a detailed report about who the military airlifted out of Afghanistan, where they are now, how many pose possible security risks, and how many US visa holders and Afghan allies the US abandoned in the country. Biden had 60 days to provide that information – and he hasn’t done it.

Many senators fear the chaotic evacuation wasn’t just an embarrassment to the country and a betrayal of Afghans who risked their lives to help us; it could also signal a threat to our safety. In October, Josh Hawley (R-MO) revealed Afghan nationals had been allowed on planes with no vetting at all, and hundreds of evacuees at military bases in the US have simply ignored the resettlement process and walked out the front gate.

It’s vital to know exactly who came here from Afghanistan in August’s chaos and where they are now – but the Biden administration isn’t providing that information. Is it simple incompetence, or is there something they don’t want us to know?
