Did the Pentagon Really Just Take a Victory Lap for the Botched Withdrawal from Afghanistan One Year Ago?

It is already been one year since the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan by the Biden Administration. With the chaos that ensued after U.S. forces were quickly taken out of the country, you would expect the Biden Administration to get through this yearly anniversary very quietly.
But that’s not how this White House rolls…
Instead, the Pentagon released a statement by Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin that basically took a victory lap for their crazy actions.
Here is a portion of the statement from the Pentagon:
“Just a few weeks ago, the United States delivered justice to Ayman al-Zawahiri, the leader of al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden’s deputy at the time of the 9/11 attacks. And in recent months, our military has successfully carried out operations against key ISIS leaders. We also know that preventing terrorist violence requires much more than military might. We’re committed to supporting a whole-of-government effort to address the root causes of violent extremism. No one should doubt America’s resolve to keep our people safe.”
Did they really say that no American “should doubt their resolve to keep our people safe?”
What about the ISIS-K suicide bomber that killed 13 U.S. service members and scores of Afghan allies as a result of Biden’s leadership, intelligence, and planning failures?
The victory lap statement continued:
“So last year, in the war’s final days, the United States, along with our partners and allies, conducted the largest air evacuation of civilians in American history, lifting more than 124,000 people to safety. I’m proud that our military communities – and Americans from all walks of life – have welcomed our Afghan allies as they begin new lives in our country.”
What really happened is the Biden Administration failed to vet thousands of people who were put into planes at Kabul’s airport. The result was a disaster.
