NBC News blames Trump for ISIS-K attack in Afghanistan

NBC News blamed former president Donald Trump for the ISIS-K attack in Afghanistan Thursday that took the lives of 13 U.S. service members, injured 20 more, and killed even more Afghan citizens.

An article written by NBC military writer Sebastien Roblin said it may be “easy” to blame President Biden for the attack, but the “architecture” of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from the region was built by Trump.

“The rushed evacuation and its vulnerability to Thursday’s deplorable attack were inevitable outcomes of the rapid collapse of the Afghan government,” Roblin wrote.

“But while Biden does, indeed, hold his share of responsibility for that collapse, he wasn’t inaccurate when he pointed out in his news conference Thursday that the architecture of the hasty U.S. withdrawal and the inevitable deadly chaos that followed was constructed by the previous commander in chief.”

Biden has repeatedly blamed Trump for the chaos unfolding in Afghanistan, most recently in a press conference Thursday. – READ MORE
