Joe Biden’s big Afghanistan betrayal is even worse than you think
The Taliban seized control of Afghanistan on Joe Biden’s watch.
Americans watched the catastrophe play out in real time.
But Joe Biden’s big Afghanistan betrayal is even worse than you think.
Joe Biden pulled American military forces out of Afghanistan before evacuating American citizens and Afghans who assisted U.S. forces during the nearly 20-year-long war.

A free-for-all where there is no organized process to evacuate Americans could be the final nail in the coffin for the Biden Presidency.
