Inspector General Gets Involved In Investigation Against Biden

The State Department's inspector general is starting a series of investigations into the Biden administration's last diplomatic moves in Afghanistan.

The focus of the investigations will be on the State Department's Special Immigrant Visa program, Afghans processed for refugee admission into the U.S., resettlement of refugees and visa recipients, and the emergency evacuation of the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, according to an Oct. 15 memo to Secretary of State Blinken.

Diana Shaw, the acting inspector general at State, told Congress that her office was launching "several oversight projects" in relation to the end of the U.S. military and diplomatic missions in Afghanistan.

"Given the elevated interest in this work by Congress and the unique circumstances requiring coordination across the Inspector General community, I wanted to notify our committees of jurisdiction of this important work," Shaw wrote in the letter addressed to the foreign affairs and intelligence committees of both the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate.

Other inspectors general offices, including those at the Department of Defense and the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, are anticipated to launch probes into the withdrawal as well.

Critics have blamed President Biden for not budging on the arbitrary Aug. 31 deadline for the withdrawal of U.S. troops, even though it was not a reasonable goal for the military to be able to withdraw all troops and civilians by that time.

Biden had promised Americans that the Taliban would not storm the U.S. Embassy in Kabul like the North Vietnamese stormed the U.S. Embassy in Saigon in 1975, however, his assurances were proved wrong, as footage of Kabul was hauntingly familiar to Saigon.

Retired Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg, a former acting national security advisor to President Trump, said that Biden owns the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster, adding that the Afghan power vacuum Biden left behind is "much worse" than the power vacuum in Iraq that led to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

A countless number of Americans and U.S. allies are still stranded in the country that was left under Taliban control. Retired military leaders have called for the mass resignation of Biden's diplomatic and military leaders in the wake of the disaster.
