Republican Brady Duke, a Christian minister and former Special Navy sniper who serves in Florida’s 7th Congressional District, said, Breitbart News Saturday That President Joe “missed Biden on every major foreign policy and national security issue for nearly four decades,” including Afghanistan.
As the country approaches the one-year anniversary of the United States’ withdrawal of its resources from Afghanistan, days after the terrorist attack that killed 13 service members and wounded several more, Duke declared that “Biden has been wrong on every major foreign policy and national security issue for nearly four years.” contracts”.
“We only saw this blatantly in the ‘Afghan withdrawal,’” Duke said. “I have a problem calling it the ‘Afghan withdrawal’ because, simply put, if you can’t, if you stand on the battlefield with your enemy, turn your back and run, you’re holding back, you don’t. withdraw.”
When discussing the lives lost over the years and seeing the withdrawal happen, I acknowledge that it is “devastating” to the United States but also “to our relationship with our allies. And the relationship we have forged with the people of Afghanistan. This is devastating for the veterans. You know, the veterans I spoke to, it made us This is sick to our stomachs. It has left many, you know, almost speechless.”
“You talk to anyone here in the city – even without any military experience – and they can tell you some of the basic steps that should have been taken, that this administration has not taken and under this command,” Duke added. “It is really devastating to see the life lost out there to try to do what is right, to stand up against terrorism, to make sure that we can stay free. But now this is, you know, another hotbed for terrorists… We have to hold this administration accountable.”
After former al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri was killed in Kabul, Afghanistan, by a US airstrike last weekend, Duke stated that it was a “victory,” but overall, “a huge loss for the people of Afghanistan. And it’s still a loss, I think, for the national security of our country.” “.
The Republican candidate also stated that he was “extremely concerned” about the national security threat in the United States after a whistleblower report claimed that federal agencies to Biden had resettled nearly 400 Afghans listed as “potential threats to national security” across states. United. in the last year.
Especially when ‘pairing’ [the resettling of “potential threats” across the counrty] With the issue of the southern border.
There have been terrorist issues with our southern border for years and years. He explained that this represented a real threat. “People in this community here locally are actually, you know, security and safety is coming because I’m talking to people while I’m knocking on doors, doing events in the city. People are more and more concerned about their personal safety, and there’s no way the Taliban weren’t aware of a leader. Base this, as I said, and he’s wandering around in broad daylight.”
And Duke continued, “Really, I think we should know that we can trust the leadership.” “I think the fight for our country is really a fight to restore the virtue and moral courage of leadership because if we cannot trust those who lead our country, I don’t know how much we hope to see a restoration that longs for…but we have a lack of trust for those in leadership” .
