That’s it. It’s over.
After 20-year military presence in Afghanistan, the last American troops evacuated, leaving the country in the hands of the Taliban.
This event marks the single greatest military defeat in U.S. history, orchestrated by the Biden administration. Yes, worse than Vietnam. Yes, worse than Korea. Nothing tops the failure Biden and his team of Deep State defense officials rained down upon the mission in Afghanistan.
The evacuation of troops and the removal of all U.S. military personnel from the region is a mixed bag. On one hand, the U.S. is spending trillions of taxpayers dollars to fund an unnecessary war, costing countless U.S. lives. On the other hand, the withdrawal from Afghanistan was executed so poorly, it’s only a matter of time before emboldened terrorists give us a reason to return.
If left up to Former President Trump, the lives of 13 U.S. servicemen would not have been sacrificed during the evacuation process.
However, the Pentagon announced on Monday the completion of the evacuation mission in Afghanistan, the end of the U.S. military presence after nearly 20 years.
Central Command Commander Marine Gen. Frank McKenzie – one of Biden’s ‘woke’ Generals – announced in a briefing that the last U.S. military aircraft has departed from the Hamid Karzai International Airport, where the evacuation was being staged.
“I’m here to announce the completion of our withdrawal from Afghanistan, and the end of the military mission to evacuate American citizens, third-country nationals, and vulnerable Afghans,” he said.

The evacuation was due to end August 31 local time.
Meanwhile, McKenzie could not conceal the fact that hundreds of American citizens were left behind in a country where Taliban now rule.

In what was McKenzie’s greatest lie, he called the evacuation mission the “largest non-combatant evacuation in U.S. military history,” never once acknowledging the 13 servicemen that had to die in order to execute it.
What part of ISIS-K suicide bombers blowing up U.S. troops is “non-combatant?”

He said since August 14, over a 18-day period, the U.S. military aircraft evacuated more than 79,000 civilians from the airport, including 6,000 Americans and more than 73,500 third-country nationals and Afghan civilians. He said along with coalition nations, more than 123,000 civilians were evacuated.
Meanwhile, while hundreds of American citizens are stranded in a war torn country, Biden officials are celebrating the mission as if it’s some sort of victory. This is no victory. This will go down in history as a military blunder the likes of which have never been seen before.
