Rick Scott Takes to the Senate Floor to Rip Into Biden for Afghanistan Withdrawal

This week, U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., spoke on the Senate floor requesting support from his colleagues to “establish a bipartisan, bicameral joint committee on Afghanistan to conduct a full investigation and compile a joint report on President Biden’s tragically failed withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan.”

Scott said the following:

In September of 2021, President Biden’s misguided and dangerous decisions in his botched withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan led to America’s most stunning, unforced and humiliating defeat in decades.

Due to President Biden’s carelessness and failed leadership, 13 U.S. service members were lost, billions of dollars of U.S. military equipment was left for the Taliban and hundreds of American citizens were stranded behind enemy lines.

The world is now a more dangerous place, our enemies like Russia, Communist China and Iran are emboldened and the American people are rightfully furious.

We must have accountability, and the best way to do that is establishing a bipartisan and bicameral Joint Select Committee on Afghanistan, similar to the Iran-Contra Committees, to conduct a full investigation and compile a joint report on President Biden’s tragically failed withdrawal from Afghanistan.

I urge my colleagues to support this amendment.
