Nancy Pelosi was left speechless.
The Biden administration fumed.
And it’s all because two congressmen Nancy Pelosi thought she could count on just stabbed her in the back.
Massachusetts Democrat Congressman Seth Moulton and Michigan Republican Peter Meijer both served in Iraq.
And although Meijer is a Republican, Nancy Pelosi knew she could count on his vote on several key issues including when Meijer voted to impeach Donald Trump in the Democrats’ second stab at a witch hunt against President Trump.
But Pelosi – as well as the Biden administration – were livid when Meijer and Moulton announced they secretly traveled to Afghanistan to survey the chaos on the ground as the Biden administration ordered a military retreat with Americans still on the ground.
Pelosi criticized the two lawmakers for traveling on near-empty planes for supposedly diverting resources from the evacuation effort.
But in the middle of the Iraq War surge, Nancy Pelosi traveled to Syria to meet with President Bashar al-Assad so many quickly accused Pelosi of hypocrisy.
It was easy to see why.
The Biden administration spent several days claiming they executed the most successful airlift in American history by evacuating over 70,000 individuals from Afghanistan.
But only a small percent of that number were American citizens and Meijer and Moulton called out the administration for falsely claiming it could evacuate all Americans by the August 31 retreat deadline set by Joe Biden.
Meijer and Moulton wrote:
We came into this visit wanting, like most veterans, to push the president to extend the August 31st deadline. After talking with commanders on the ground and seeing the situation here, it is obvious that because we started the evacuation so late, that no matter what we do, we won’t get everyone out on time, even by September 11. Sadly and frustratingly, getting our people out depends on maintaining the current, bizarre relationship with the Taliban.
In the coming days, we will have more to share with our colleagues and the American people about what we learned, but after meeting with Marines, soldiers, and dedicated State Department officials on the ground—we want the world to know first and foremost that we have never been prouder to be Americans.
The Biden administration suffered from brutally negative press coverage over the failure to properly execute a withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Polls showed Joe Biden’s approval numbers plummeting.
Meijer and Moulton’s trip exposed the fact that the Biden administration tried to claim – as a massive success – they were putting out the inferno that their arsonist policies and planning caused.
The collapse of Afghanistan as the Biden administration stranded Americans in Afghanistan represented the most humiliating military defeat for the United States of America since the Vietnam War and the fall of Saigon.
Joe Biden and his allies tried to hide this truth from the public by refusing to take questions and concealing the number of Americans deserted.
But Moulton and Meijer helped expose this failure with this trip which explains why Pelosi and the Biden administration erupted in anger.
