On the other hand, According to House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-California), Biden’s lack of leadership has been regarded as “shameful,” as well as he blamed President Joe Biden for the circumstances that have transpired. He highlighted that President Joe Biden, after just seven months in office, must take full responsibility for the current catastrophe in Afghanistan. He must do it without any hesitation. Moreover, His inability to provide strong leadership during this vital moment has been an embarrassment, empowering American adversaries and disappointing the allies.
Moreover, a slew of authors has contributed to America’s two-decade presence in Afghanistan. When leaders of any party threaten to put politics over ground reality, people are reluctant to speak openly. As a result, many people believe that Biden’s presidency is coming to an end. Nothing he can do can make up for his actions. The most problematic aspect of the matter is that the withdrawal was utterly unnecessary in the first place.
