Texas Rep. Ronny Jackson appeared on Fox & Friends Monday one year after President Biden’s failed Afghanistan exit to vow a GOP investigation into one of the biggest foreign policy failures in recent history.

You can guarantee that if the GOP flips the House, they will be diving into this one.

“Something like this cannot happen and nobody be held accountable for it,” said Jackson.

From Fox News:

A year ago today, the Islamic fundamentalist Taliban swept into the Afghan capital of Kabul following the collapse of the country’s elected government. The last member of the U.S. military left 15 days later, capping almost 20 tumultuous years of American involvement in the central Asian country.

“We will not conduct a hasty rush to the exit,” Biden said at the time. “We’ll do it responsibly, deliberately and safely. And we will do it in full coordination with our allies and partners, who now have more forces in Afghanistan than we do.”

It was far from a responsible exit.

“It led to a colossal failure,” Jackson says. “We’ve destroyed our reputation abroad. We lost 13 service members in the process. And I think that we have a lot of whistleblowers that have come out that have contributed to this report. I think it’s very accurate. I think it’s very telling. I think it’s only the beginning of what we’re going to find out once we get the house back in January, and we really start oversight into this.”

“We will get to the bottom of this, and we will find out what happened to the billions of dollars of weapons that we left behind, all these special immigrant visa applications that were out there. We left these people behind, a lot of them that fled into Iran to keep from being killed by the Taliban,” he told Brian Kilmeade, Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt.

“The Department of Defense requested 2,500 troops, plus 6,000 NATO troops. We should have left them at Bagram. We could have done this in a logical and controlled fashion. No one would have got killed. And we could have turned this over like it was supposed to be done. But it was done for political reasons. That’s the problem with all of this.”

Jackson shared his appearance on Twitter, saying “It’s been one year since the tragic fall of Kabul, and this White House still REFUSES to accept blame for their failures. This was all avoidable. The White House is trying to cover-up the TRUTH on what happened. When Republicans take back the House, there will be INVESTIGATIONS!!”
