Blinken GRILLED At Afghanistan Hearing Over Reportedly Failed Drone Strike

Secretary of State Antony Blinken was grilled by both Republican and Democrat congressmen during a recent hearing about the Afghanistan withdrawal.

“Aid worker or an ISIS-K operative?” That was a key question asked during the hearing.

Blinken’s answer. He said he did not know because the matter was still being reviewed.

Sen. Rand Paul offered the best response to Blinken’s answer.

“You’d think you’d kind of know before you off somebody with a predator drone whether he’s an aid worker or he’s an ISIS-K,” Paul said.

“The American people don’t like to lose, especially not to terrorists, but that is exactly what has happened. This has emboldened the Taliban and our adversaries,” he added.

The senator was right. Who conducts a drone strike on someone and doesn’t know the strike target? The more likely honest answer is that Blinken isn’t allowed to say or doesn’t want to admit who was killed in the drone strike.

It’s bad enough that Biden failed to evacuate Americans before removing the military. It’s even worse that he left the military in a position where 13 were killed in a bombing outside the airport.

But when the parting shot is killing off an innocent family with a drone strike? There at least needs to be some accountability, something Blinken and the Biden administration run from faster than the Taliban.
