A new book reveals President Biden’s lack of empathy toward families of fallen service members and his failure to acknowledge their names after the mishandled Afghanistan withdrawal in 2021.
President Joe Biden’s Mishandled Exit From Afghanistan
In a new book titled “Kabul: The Untold Story of Biden’s Fiasco and the American Warriors Who Fought to the End,” authors Jerry Dunleavy and James Hasson reveal further details about President Joe Biden’s mishandled exit from Afghanistan.
A Chaotic 2021 Withdrawal
The book, released recently, delves into the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2021 and the subsequent surrender of U.S. forces to the Taliban after years of conflict.
People Lost Loved Ones Because of the Pentagon
The authors uncover instances of Biden’s treatment of families whose loved ones lost their lives due to the Pentagon’s missteps.
Biden Spoke to the Families of 13 Soldiers
Among the heartbreaking stories, the book highlights how Biden addressed the families of the 13 soldiers who died in a suicide bombing in Kabul.
They Died Because of Pentagon Decisions
These individuals were unnecessarily placed in danger due to Pentagon decisions.
One Mother Met Biden
Gold Star mother, Shana Chappell, known for her Facebook post criticizing Biden’s role in her son’s death, encountered Biden’s indifference firsthand.
Never Addressed Their Loved Ones By Name
The book excerpts reveal that Biden mentioned his own personal tragedy—the death of his son Beau—to other grieving parents but never referred to the fallen soldiers by their names.
Using Generic Terms
Instead, he used generic terms like “your son” or “your daughter.”
This lack of acknowledgment exacerbated the pain of these families, who were seeking comfort and understanding during an immensely difficult time.
He Started Talking About Himself
Cherry Rex, another Gold Star mother, recounted how Biden’s interaction during a dignified transfer ceremony for her son, Marine Lance Cpl. Dylan Merola, focused on his own experiences.
He Says He Understood Her Pain
Rex’s son had died in the Kabul bombing. Biden mentioned losing his son and how he understood their pain.
They Brought Their Son Home in a Coffin
“When he approached me, his words to me were, ‘My wife Jill and I know how you feel. We lost our son as well and brought him home in a flag-draped coffin,’” she said.
He Lied to Her
Rex added, “My heart started beating faster and I started shaking, knowing that their son died from cancer and they were able to be by his side.”
Inability to Have Genuine Empathy
His inability to empathize with the unique circumstances faced by these grieving parents left them shocked and hurt.
Another Mother Shared Her Disappointment
Paula Knauss Selph, the mother of Army Staff Sgt. Ryan Christian Knauss, who also lost his life in the Kabul attack, shared her disappointment after meeting Biden on Memorial Day.
‘Started Talking About His Son Beau’
“I explained to him that I’m never going to hug Kareem again,” Chappell is quoted as saying in the book.
“I’m never going to see a smile, I’m never going to hear his voice, and he interrupted me. He started talking about his son Beau.”
She Said He Was ‘Empty’
She described him as “empty” and lacking in genuine empathy, emphasizing that she had hoped for a leader who would express sorrow for the situation at hand.
Critics Say These Deaths Are on Their Hands
Critics argue that the Biden administration’s flawed execution of the Afghanistan withdrawal, despite potential opportunities to backtrack on previous agreements with the Taliban, led to the deaths of these brave service members.
Broadcasting Voices of Those Who Suffered
The book, based on comprehensive research, aims to bring to light the untold stories of those affected by the disastrous handling of the withdrawal.
