House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat from California, has done exactly what you might expect of her – scolded two congressmen who travelled to Afghanistan.
She said the trip was irresponsible because the area is so dangerous, which serious contradicted her claims that Biden should be praised for his handling of the war in Afghanistan.
“So this is deadly serious. We do not want members to go, The point is that we didn’t want anybody to think this was a good idea and they should try to follow suit.”
So if even Pelosi knows the area is extremely dangerous, why won’t Biden admit it is?
Perhaps Pelosi needs a scolding of her own from creepy Joe, because he apparently wants the area touted as a tourist destination.
Here’s Pelosi’s full statement: “Given the urgency of this situation, the desire of some Members to travel to Afghanistan and the surrounding areas is understandable and reflective of the high priority that we place on the lives of those on the ground. However, I write to reiterate that the Departments of Defense and State have requested that Members not travel to Afghanistan and the region during this time of danger. Ensuring the safe and timely evacuation of individuals at risk requires the full focus and attention of the U.S. military and diplomatic teams on the ground in Afghanistan. Member travel to the Afghanistan and the surrounding countries would unnecessarily divert needed resources from the priority mission of safely and expeditiously evacuating America and Afghans at risk from Afghanistan.”
