President Joe Biden on Monday defended his decision to continue with the U.S. military withdrawal in Afghanistan, blaming the U.S.-backed Afghan government and military for allowing the Taliban to take over.
Joe Biden: “I am president of the United States of America, and the buck stops with me,” he said.
“I am deeply saddened by the facts we now face, but I do not regret my decision.”
Speaking to the American public from the White House, Joe Biden said he stood firmly by his decision and argued that he was faced with a choice to either follow through with the drawdown or escalate the conflict into its third decade and ultimately sacrifice more American lives.
“I stand squarely behind my decision.”
“After 20 years, I’ve learned the hard way that there was never a good time to withdraw U.S. forces from Afghanistan.
That’s why we’re still there,” Biden said.
