During an interview with CBS ‘”The Takeout” podcast recorded Tuesday and released Friday, the rep said. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) that the withdrawal from Afghanistan “was a disaster. I think it was chaotic. I think it was really, really hard to see,” even if it was not entirely due to elections made in 2021, but was the culmination of two decades of decisions.
Spanberger stated, [relevant remarks begin around 33:00] “I think it was a disaster. I think it was chaotic. I think it was really, really hard to see, especially for anyone who has ever spent time in Afghanistan or spent years of their lives focusing on some kind of future and the opportunity that existed in Afghanistan. But I think one can say, yes, it was a bad reality in August, but it was not just the decisions in July and June that got us there, or the kind of choices we made in August. It’s 20 years of decision-making and 20 years of choice that led us to the case. “
