Gold Star Families Sound Off on Biden’s Betrayal

Of all the disgraces history will curse Biden for, the most infuriating may be his betrayal of US troops serving in Afghanistan. His treatment of their survivors has been appalling:

The emotional testimony this week by the families of the 13 U.S. service members killed during President Biden’s chaotic military withdrawal in Afghanistan has cast renewed scrutiny on the president’s past treatment of Gold Star families. …

The U.S. military evacuation, which required thousands of additional U.S. troops on the ground and significant cooperation from the Taliban to complete, ended a day ahead of deadline on Aug. 30, 2021, leaving behind hundreds of U.S. citizens and tens of thousands of Afghan allies despite Biden’s promise days earlier to “get them all out.”

By “evacuation,” they mean unconditional surrender to the sandal-wearing savages who provided Al Qaeda the base from which to launch 9/11.

There has been no accountability, despite the Americans killed or abandoned, and despite the $billions worth of military equipment paid for by Americans and gifted by Biden to the Taliban.

“We were told lies, given incomplete reports, incorrect reports, total disrespect,” [Gold Star mother Kelly] Barnett said. “I was told to my face [son Staff Sergeant Taylor Hoover] died on impact. That’s not true. The only reason that I know this is because witnesses told me the truth. I was lied to and basically told to shut up.”

Shana Chappell, mother of Lance Corporal Kareem Nikoui, sounded off on Facebook about a meeting with Biden:

“You tried to interrupt me and give me your own sob story and I had to tell you, ‘This isn’t about you so don’t make it about you!’” Chappell wrote. “You then said you just wanted me to know that you know how I feel and I let you know that you don’t know how I feel and you do not have the right to tell me you know how I feel! You then rolled your f— eyes in your head like you were annoyed with me and I let you know that the only reason I was talking to you was out of respect for my son.”

Far from accepting meaningful responsibility for the debacle, Biden wouldn’t even stop looking at his watch as the corpses of Americans he had gotten killed were returned:

Darin Hoover, father of Utah Marine Darin Taylor Hoover Jr., said the president looked down at his watch not once but several times as the caskets were being offloaded.

“That didn’t happen just once. It happened on every single one that came out of that airplane. It happened on every single one of them. They would release the salute, and he would look down at his watch on every last one, all 13, he looked down at his watch,” Hoover said on Fox News’ “Hannity” in 2021.

Further, Biden insultingly steals valor by lying to Gold Star families that his son Beau died in Iraq.

As the cherry on top, he continues to shovel our money at the Taliban he surrendered to:

A report from the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction that was released a week ago found that since the American military left Kabul with 13 U.S. service members killed and with billions of dollars in equipment left behind, money has continued to flow in. …

“The U.S. government has appropriated more than $2.35 billion in [fiscal year] 2022 and [fiscal year] 2023 funding for Afghanistan reconstruction programming since the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan in August 2021,” the report stated.

This goes beyond treason to something so vile we have no word for it.

Here a Gold Star father calls on Biden and his stooges to have the honor to resign:

But there is no honor in Biden, or in the liberal establishment he personifies — as CNN demonstrates by ignoring the testimony:
