As the world witnesses the total collapse of the Afghan government amid Biden’s rushed withdrawal, Campus Reform’s video reporter Addison Smith went to Georgetown University to get students’ reactions to the news and the rise of the Taliban.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki recently said she could not “guarantee” the evacuation of the thousands of American citizens whom they left behind. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen.
Mark Milley and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin recently said they are unable to gather “large groups” of Americans stranded in Kabul. But images have recently surfaced showing U.S. aircrafts carrying hundreds of Afghans to safety.
“I feel like that’s probably something that could have been avoided,” one student said.
“I think it definitely was a big oversight by Biden to not have a plan in place… It kind of seems like they don’t have a plan even now,” another expressed.
Now that Aug. 31 has passed, these issues remain even more important as Americans are trapped under the rule of the Taliban. What is Biden’s plan? There isn’t one.
The problem does seem to be based on one party, either. Students of all backgrounds seem to agree Biden needs to do something, and do something now.
Watch for yourself for more student responses to Biden’s failure from Campus Reform.
