Biden’s Afghanistan Actions ‘Treason,’ Says GOP Congressman and Veteran
Florida Republican Rep. Brian Mast, who also served in the Armed Forces in Afghanistan, said during a Sunday interview on Fox News that President Joe Biden should be removed from office for treason.
“Impeachment is absolutely something that should be considered. I would say no less than 10,000 counts of reckless endangerment, all of the American lives over there that’s the minimum, which is actually a real crime,” Mast said.
“Beyond that, as I’ve said already, I think we absolutely need to look at what is the truth about this phone call with the former Afghan president.
“We know for a fact that the Taliban is the sworn enemy of the United States of America,” Mast continued.
“We are still in the midst of the war on terror, and as I said, I would absolutely consider the manipulation of intelligence, giving aid and comfort to the enemy, all three of those things are part of what meets the constitutional definition of treason,” Mast said.
Congressman Mast is not alone in his calls for Biden to be removed from office. As many as 40 GOP lawmakers have called for his resignation or removal from office.
“‘No man left behind’ is an empty promise for the Biden Administration,” Mast also tweeted alongside a video of the interview.
“Americans are left behind, our Afghan allies are left behind, and yet the Biden Administration seeks to move on like nothing happened,” Mast said during another recent interview.
“The entire Administration needs to be held accountable for aiding terrorists,” he added.
Mast is right. For Labor Day weekend, Biden flew out of town for vacation while hundreds of Americans remain trapped in Afghanistan. He’s not looking to rescue Americans. He has already abandoned them as hostages to the Taliban.
Worse, the Biden administration won’t even call the Taliban an enemy of the United States. This is the same group that just reconnected with al Qaeda, the group behind 9/11 that killed nearly 3,000 Americans and began the War on Terror 20 years ago.
Are you kidding me? Now, the United Nations will “continue to support” the Taliban and its people with humanitarian assistance. Of course, the U.S. will be part of sending our tax dollars back to Afghanistan in the form of humanitarian aid, but there’s nothing humanitarian about its new government.
In other words, Biden left a war, gave the nation back to the Taliban, left Americans in the country under the power of the enemy, gave them American military equipment, will continue to send money for humanitarian aid and yet has the audacity to call it a great success. The only thing successful about this failure from Biden’s perspective is that he’s still in office despite what could be called the worst foreign policy failure in the nation’s history.
Of course, if you ask the left, the typical answer is to blame Trump. It was his plan and his failures that led to Biden’s blunders. But those answers are not the reality. Trump didn’t leave Americans in Kabul. Biden did. Trump didn’t evacuate the military first. Biden did. And Trump didn’t leave behind American military equipment. Biden did.
Mast is exactly on target when he says the actions of Biden are not only bad, they are treasonous.
