Jake Bequette is a former American football defensive end for the Patriots, and a United States Army soldier who served in Iraq in support of Operation Inherent Resolve. He is currently setting up a campaign to run for the United States Senate for Arizona.
As a former 1st Lieutenant who served in the army’s 101st airborne division, he joins Buck to discuss the disaster in Kabul as thousands of Americans and Afghan nationals scramble to flee Afghanistan. Listen to him tell it as it is and listen to the White House Press Secretary deny that Americans are trapped in Afghanistan.
The Afghanistan effort is collapsing. Firefights breaking out. Biden is quitting. Americans will be abandoned. https://t.co/450zHdtkRt— Michael Yon (@Michael_Yon) August 23, 2021
Here is a very good earlier interview that clears up what Trump had set up for Afghanistan withdrawal versus what Biden did. Last week Buck talked with former Department of Defense official Kash Patel to discuss the ongoing crisis in Kabul as thousands were attempting to evacuate the city, including Americans.
Who do you think is at fault? Was it President Trump? The Biden-Harris Administration? Or the “most highly politicized figure in the USA”, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Milley? Whoever it was, the Taliban are victorious. And all it took was trillions of dollars and too many brave American souls.
