A spokesperson for President Biden’s National Security Council drafted a memo this week defending the administration’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, writing that the president “refused to send another generation of Americans to fight a war that should have ended long ago,” according to a copy of the document obtained by Fox News Digital.
It comes as Republicans on the House Foreign Affairs Committee are preparing to release a report critical of the withdrawal, accusing the administration of failing to evacuate some U.S.-trained Afghan military personnel and potentially creating a major national security risk.
The article goes on to state the following:
The White House memo called the Republicans’ review a “partisan report” that is “riddled with inaccurate characterizations, cherry-picked information, and false claims.”
National Security Council spokesperson Adrienne Watson wrote in the report, “Bringing our troops home strengthened our national security by better positioning us to confront the challenges of the future and put the United States in a stronger place to lead the world. It freed up critical military, intelligence, and other resources to ensure we are better poised to respond to today’s threats to international peace and stability.”
The memo explained that the president inherited a deal worked out by the Trump administration that called for a complete withdrawal by May 2021, but Biden pushed the date back to April 2021.
Essentially the White House’s memo focuses on the deal, essentially casting blame on the Trump administration for the botched withdrawal.
The National Security Council spokesperson wrote in the report “Former President Trump’s 2020 agreement with the Taliban empowered the Taliban, weakened our partners in the Afghan government, and committed to withdrawing our troops a few months after President Biden’s inauguration — with no clear plan for what should come next.”
Meanwhile, Texas Republican Rep. Michael McCaul White said in a Sunday interview with CBS “The intelligence community got it right. The problem was the White House and … State Department putting their head in the sand, not wanting to believe what they were saying and therefore not adequately planning.”
