I am so upset, I can’t see straight. The decision Joe Biden made to close Bagram air base in favor of the Kabul airport in the withdrawal from Afghanistan scenario was a colossal mistake. That mistake lead directly to the loss of 12 Marines and one Navy corpsman (medic). Those young Marines and sailor would be alive today if Biden had followed the advice of senior military commanders. Their blood is on his hands.

If you know of an Afgan veteran, please reach out to him/her with compassion.
