Senator Richard Blumenthal is furious with President Joe Biden over his “inaction” to facilitate the evacuation of American and Afghan allies stranded in the country.

According to The Daily Wire:

The Biden administration’s inaction has raised the ire of at least one Democratic senator, Blumenthal, who ripped into the Biden administration on Monday. Blumenthal sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee.

“My staff & I have worked night & day to secure the safe passage of two planes waiting in Mazar-e Sharif to take American citizens, at-risk Afghan allies, & their families to safety,” Blumenthal said. “My office joined forces in this humanitarian mission with an incredible coalition of advocates—NGOs, former servicemembers, & journalists—to try & evacuate our fellow citizens & Afghan allies.”

“I haven’t yet spoken publicly about these efforts because we worried that heightened attention would only escalate tensions & put these people at even greater risk of being targeted,” he continued. “I have been deeply frustrated, even furious, at our government’s delay & inaction. There will be plenty of time to seek accountability for the inexcusable bureaucratic red tape that stranded so many of our Afghan allies.”

“For now, my singular focus remains getting these planes in the air & safely to our airbase in Doha, where they have already been cleared to land,” the senator added. “I expect the White House & State Department to do everything in their power—absolutely everything—to make this happen. These are Americans citizens & Afghans who risked everything for our country. We cannot leave them behind.”

The State Department has stated that it lacks the resources to help the private groups, The Washington Free Beacon reported.

You democrats voted for this disgusting uncaring fool. You thought you could control him. His true colors are now out in the open. A evil unamerican unmoral unclean a abuser of women and children has become dictator. The only way to get rid of Biden is by force. The democrats know they screwed up putting his unamerican communist in office. So now its up to the American people to stop the destruction of America. The military can do it. But the top brass has no honor or pride for America . Obama leftovers are running the military into ground. Obama should be arrested for treason and crimes against the American people. A day of hangings on White House lawn will show what happens to traitors.

Blumenthal lied and exaggerated his own military record. He has no right to criticize. Blumenthal does not belong in Congress!

Because many, if not all of these lib-turd flunkeys are going to get thrown under the bus, politically…

Biden would rather they die, they could tell the truth of the disaster he created.
