Republican representatives to indict Blinken for failing to stop car bombs in war zone

A couple of Republican MPs have filed two articles of impeachment against Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Thursday’s deadly car bombings outside the Kabul airport, because while every senator is calling for Blinken and every member of Joe Biden’s national security team to resign or be charged, these suckers are actually in the House. , so they can actually present an impeachment resolution, although it won’t get anywhere, with a Democratic majority and all.

Still, something terrible happened, just as US intelligence and the State Department had warned that it was possible, even probable, so Blinken should be removed from office for failing to prevent a terrorist attack in the chaos of an area of war.

the eight page impeachment resolution presented by Representatives Andy Harris (R-Maryland) and Ralph Norman (R-South Carolina) asserts that Blinken did not fulfill his oath and committed serious crimes and misdemeanors by presiding over “a reckless abandonment of the interests of our nation, the security, and values ​​in their role in the withdrawal of US forces and diplomatic assets from Afghanistan. ”

In particular, it claims that Blinken did not evacuate all Americans quickly enough, which made the terrorist attack possible, and that it had ignored “critical information received from the embassy in Kabul and US intelligence agencies” prior to the withdrawal. of forces.

Interestingly, the indictment does not mention the Warning from the US embassy to Americans in Kabul that an attack was imminent, so they should move away from the airport area. It was a very specific warning, In fact.

Due to the security threats outside the Kabul airport gates, we recommend that US citizens avoid traveling to the airport and avoid the airport gates at this time, unless they receive individual instructions from a US government representative. .UU. To do so.

US citizens found at Abbey Gate, East Gate, or North Gate must now leave immediately.

Ah, but despite the State Department issuing the warnings, Blinken failed to stop the car bombs in an area that was controlled by the Taliban, which was what’s more his fault because he let the Taliban take over.

Elsewhere, the resolution feels like gibberish, like this attempt to find a chargeable crime in a fairly comprehensive statement from Blinken. spokesman fact about “leverage”, yes, really:

On August 10, 2021, as the crisis in Afghanistan was evident and worsening, Secretary Blinken’s spokesman, Ned Price, declared that “America continues to have influence … and the Afghan government has tremendous influence.” which has now been proven obviously wrong in constituting the provision of false information to Congress and the American citizens.

Furthermore, Blinken apparently did not fulfill its constitutional duty to keep Congress informed of everything it needed, because its first public press conference on the collapse of the Afghan government did not come until a week after the Taliban took over Kabul.

Worse still, when Joe Biden said there would be no chaotic evacuations like Saigon’s last days, Blinken completely failed to inform the American people that Biden was lying, because several members of the embassy staff in Kabul had sent cables calling for faster processing of visas for the US military’s Afghan allies. In Harris and Norman’s view, this meant that Blinken failed to fulfill its “moral duty” and its legal obligation to

inform Congress and the American public … that President Biden’s statements must be clarified to avoid any confusion at home and abroad.

Yes, again, really.

It’s remarkably thin material, but it’s not really an attempt to get Blinken out of the office anyway; the goal was get mentioned on Fox News and other right-wing media, so it worked fine.

We honestly don’t recall hearing from Representatives Harris and Norman, although we see that both were among the majority of House Republicans who voted against certifying the 2020 election, which shows how much they care that the servers audiences stay true to their oaths. .

Also, we’ll just point out that if these idiots are going to claim that Antony Blinken and the US military withdrawal caused a car bombing in Kabul, they will probably have to explain why terrorist attacks in Kabul were so common while the US . still in Afghanistan that the the topic has its own Wikipedia entry, with separate lists for each year since 2008, at the end.
