Elizabeth Warren Praises Afghanistan Withdrawal as ‘An Amazing Undertaking’
“We should be proud of President Biden”
Millions of Americans are disgusted by the way the withdrawal from Afghanistan was handled, but not Senator Elizabeth Warren. During a recent appearance on MSNBC, she described it as an “amazing undertaking.”
She acknowledges the challenges and mentions the service member from Massachusetts who was killed, but she is very restrained about the disastrous aspects of it. The only thing she gets right is praising the military for the job they did.
Here’s a transcript, via MSNBC:
O`DONNELL: Joining us now is Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.
Thank you very much for joining us tonight, Senator. Really appreciate it.
What was your takeaway from the hearing about the evacuation from Afghanistan?
WARREN: That it was actually an amazing undertaking. It was done under chaotic circumstances because the government had collapsed, because the party had melted away the Afghan army and that even in the midst of all of that, our military was able to get about 124,000 people out. They left no American-owned equipment behind. They managed to execute that.
And, yes, it was at risk. We lost a young woman from Massachusetts. I`m working now on trying to get the Congressional Medal of Honor for the people who we lost right at the end. But we knew it was a risky undertaking and the military performed. We should be proud of President Biden and proud of our military.
Here’s the clip:
What’s being left unsaid about the military’s recommendation to leave a force behind in Afghanistan is that it would have required more than 2,500 troops & those troops would have been needed indefinitely. I believe @POTUS & his advisors had it right: withdrawing was overdue. pic.twitter.com/RB8NIQSfKI

Afghans were killed, falling from the wheel wells of airplanes, 13 American service members were killed by a suicide bomber, a follow-up drone strike killed innocent people, including children, and American citizens were left behind, but Warren thinks we should be “proud” of how Biden handled this?
Warren is framing it this way because Biden is a Democrat and Warren is a soldier for her party. No one in their right mind would ever believe she would be talking this way if the withdrawal was handled this badly by Trump. Elizabeth Warren would be joining other Democrats calling for another impeachment.
During the Senate hearings earlier this week, when other lawmakers were grilling Milley and Lloyd, Warren took a very kid gloves approach that was clearly intended to avoid any criticism of Biden.
Transcript via her Senate site:
Senator Warren: Okay. So the military planned the evacuation. Did President Biden follow your advice on executing on the evacuation plan?
Secretary Austin: He did.
Senator Warren: Did President Biden give you all the resources that you needed?
Secretary Austin: From my view, he did.
Senator Warren: Did President Biden ignore your advice on the evacuation at any point?
Secretary Austin: No, Senator. He did not.
Sen Warren: Did he refuse any requests for anything that you needed or asked for?
Secretary Austin: No.
Senator Warren: So the President followed the advice of his military advisors in planning and executing this withdrawal.
She is giving Biden a pass she would never give Trump, or any other Republican for that matter.

The more praise lavished on the Biden/Harris/Obama/Rice/Soros/Gates/CCP admin, the more obvious the hell-hole they created and the suffering of left behind Americans… abandoned to their fates. The old joke in Russia was when Pravda encouraged new recipes for cabbage… it meant another wheat failure.
This is the way they rewrite history. The media will get 5 or 6 more people to heap praise on the Biden pullout. Then in December they will write the typical stories that recap the year – spinning Biden’s debacle as a victory. I can see the spin now – – “America only lost about a dozen solders in a complex operation that involved hundreds of planes and movement of 125,000 people in only two weeks time. Truly the finest hour for our U.S. military.” They will conveniently overlook the strategic blunder and the attempt to gain a “photo-op” for this feckless commander-in-chief. Repeat the lies long enough and they becomes truth.
Nobel nomination for Biden, Pulitzer for the combined NYt/ WAPO story about the heroic and glorious rescue!!
Long live our glorious leader!!
Warren is an idiot. She is also a prime example of what you get when you reward people for what they claim to be rather than for who they are and what they actually can do. Well done Massachusetts.
She’s just a plain old fraud who got lucky and got in on the scam early.
Ed Markey, who’s just as batshit crazy, but doesn’t Bogart airtime over it.
Teddy Kennedy, a blowhard, drunk, coward, and murderer.
John Kerry, a gigolo, hypocrite, and self-admitted traitor.
Scott Brown, a Democrat in RINO clothing.
And in other offices, Mitt Romney and Bill Weld, both “Not Even RINOs.”
You have to say one thing about Massachusetts: only their Republicans stab you in the back, the Democrats do it front and center.
Women like the central position given to the irrational in politics. It’s empowering.
What’s amazing is the fact you armed the bad guy’s and no one is being held accountable.
Dismember, decapitate, too. Take a knee. It’s all very Pro-Choice. Unconditional surrender and billions of dollars in state-of-the-art military hardware were housewarming gifts (“redistributive change”). Time will tell if Biden matches Obama’s legacy in transnational (world) wars and, perhaps, an Al-Qaeda Spring.
Notice the sleight-of-hand. She says “we got all our equipment out” – very clever wording. In truth, the $70 billion of equipment left behind was not technically “our equipment” since we have it to the Afghan army. This is how they spin and rewrite history. We have gone full Orwell.
The reason VEEP was funny was because it mocked the voters through the characters it chose to vote in. This announcement would be part of the script of that show, plus of course backstabbing surrounding it behind the scenes.
Elizabeth Warren described Biden’s Afghan withdrawal, “Oh my! It was an amazing undertaking. It with just like the US withdrawal from the Little big Horn. Gen Milley and Custer are both fantastic generals.”
What an ignorant slut—Custer didn’t “withdraw “ at Little Bighorn, he died there—too bad the same can’t be said of Milley and Afghanistan
But it’s the kind of thing she might have said.
My liberal, “product of the 1960s” Uncle would say stuff during the Bush Jr years that he “wanted to see GWB hanging from a noose”.
I reeled in horror that an American could think that way. That was before I became politically aware.
Now, I think the “Mussolini Treatment” would be far too kind of an end for these despicable, traitorous, lying wastes of humanity.
Princess Spreading Bull probably thinks Wounded Knee was a glorious Indian victory.
Even Fauxcahontas isn’t stupid enough to believe this. Obviously she has a reason for wanting other people to believe it. Most likely, she thinks fundraising will be better if she pretends to be loyal.
She can act as batshit crazy as she wants, but The Squad will never let a fossil like her into their cool kids club. Rumor is the bald one already passed her a note reading, “p* off, grandma!”
Cowabunga! Walking Eagle (that’s a bird so full of crap, it can’t fly) speaks with forked tongue!
The MoH? No. Surface level information indicates a BSM with V (valour) device tops if the approval authority was being generous and feeling pressure; even then I don’t think a BSM was earned. More realistically would be a V device on an Army or Navy Commendation Medal alongside a posthumous Purple Heart.
This sort of gross award inflation demonstrates her complete lack of knowledge about and ability to judge military operations on the merits. The pullout was a self created fiasco. Totally avoidable but PR concerns, abstract timelines and competing priorities from State pushed aside purely operational concerns resulting in a constrained and limited ability for the mission commander to execute his set of fubar orders.
You know if a couple of them had spotted the suicide bomber, grabbed him and dragged him away from the crowd and got killed in the process but saved lots of other people that would qualify. I’m no expert but I don’t think just being in a crowd that gets blown up counts as extraordinary heroism.
Warren says: “They left no American-owned equipment behind”. Then what is all that American military hardware doing in the hands of the Taliban?
It’s true. It used to be American owned. But no more. America abandoned it and the Taliban immediately took possession saying. “finders keepers.”
Technically she is correct but she is using word games to confuse the issue. We gave the equipment to the Afghan military and national police over the last 20 yrs. If they had held on to the country and were still using the equipment no one would have a problem with it. So we left Afghan owned American made military equipment behind.
Don’t you just love those high cheek bones. She looks like a real Native American, blond hair and all. Fauxcohontus is speaking to the sheeple on MSNBC. The truth doesn’t matter on that network. It’s all propaganda all the time.
She’s not even 1/1024th right. Ignorant bitch
This is why Elizabeth Warren can never win anything national. She’s completely tone deaf and makes unforced errors. The media had gone and squashed everything Afghanistan and she brings it up again for free criticism and debunking. This is just like when she got a DNA test that she wasn’t forced to get and proved how good she is at unforced errors.
She either screwed this up or has a quiet grudge against Biden and camp from the primaries.
True to normal people, but we’re talking massholes. They’ll re elect her time and again.
In Massachusetts, the “choice” you have now has become only between a genuine Democrat and a counterfeit one.
My oh my, whatever could we have expected from the party of $3.5 trillion giveaway won’t cost a cent. Truth obviously being one of those things not to expect from them.
Hard to believe ol’ Lizzy hasn’t given away her multiple millions to the welfare class as reparations. She whines so much about the poors.
Amazing? It sure was that and then some.
Amazing? It sure was that and then some.
Warren: “They left no American-owned equipment behind”. So you are saying that the Biden Administration gave military equipment to a ruling body that includes several actual terrorists? That doesn’t sound good
“They left no American-owned equipment behind.”
A flat-out lie.
She’s trying to claim that the military equipment the Taliban captured wasn’t ours because it had been given to the Afghan government, but even if we were to accept that as a true statement we know that MASSIVE amounts of military equipment was left by our own troops in the hasty retreat.
But no one will call Warren on this outright lie.
Elizabeth Warren is absolutely correct in saying that the Afghanistan withdrawal was an amazing undertaking. The Taliban will use their amazing undertaking donated by the Biden/Harris administration for years to come. Hopefully, we will have something besides dead American heros to show for it!
An amazing undertaking done by the undertaker in chief.
