Biden’s handling of Afghanistan is a complete and utter disaster.
Of course, it’s mainly conservatives who are putting him on blast, but surely there must be some on the left who are just as frustrated, whether they want to admit it or not.
But one member of the Hollywood elite is done staying silent and just issued a blistering response to Biden’s withdrawal.
Angelina Jolie just joined Instagram last week and she just made her first post of which was entirely dedicated to the travesties that are taking place in Afghanistan and in a column she wrote for Time Magazine she explained the shame she feels regarding Biden’s actions.
Jolie shared that she was in Afghanistan mere weeks before the September 11, 2001 terror attacks and met refugees fleeing the Taliban.
She then went on to express her disappointment with how the Biden administration has handled the withdrawal of troops, saying:
“It is sickening to watch Afghans being displaced yet again out of the fear and uncertainty that has gripped their country.
To spend so much time and money, to have blood shed and lives lost only to come to this, is a failure almost impossible to understand.
Watching for decades how Afghan refugees – some of the most capable people in the world – are treated like a burden is also sickening. Knowing that if they had the tools and respect, how much they would do for themselves. And meeting so many women and girls who not only wanted an education, but fought for it.
Like others who are committed, I will not turn away …
This follows a column the 46-year-old wrote for Time last Friday in which she argued, “Whatever your views on the war in Afghanistan, we probably agree on one thing: it should not have ended this way.”
She went on to say that “appearing to cut and run, and abandoning our allies and supporters in the most chaotic way imaginable, after so many years of effort and sacrifice, is a betrayal and a failure impossible to fully understand.”
Jolie went on to share that as an American she is “ashamed by the manner of our leaving” and contended that it has left the U.S. diminished in the world’s eyes.
Well, this could be the first time ever that Angelina actually issued a statement that will have more conservatives than liberals cheering for it.
Heck, she might even rival her own father with this one.
