Ronny Jackson vows GOP will hold Biden admin accountable for Afghanistan exit: 'They don't want the truth out'

Texas Republican Ronny Jackson vowed Monday that Republicans will seek accountability for the Biden administration's Afghanistan withdrawal, which led to the deaths of 13 American soldiers.

Jackson joined "Fox & Friends" to discuss Republicans' plan to investigate the Biden administration if they regain control of the House in the midterm elections.

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

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.

Biden, who, it seems, didn't foresee the August collapse of the Afghan government as a result of the American withdrawal, pledged: "We will not conduct a hasty rush to the exit. 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."

Jackson said the Biden administration "does not want the truth to get out there" regarding the withdrawal as a Republican report accuses the White House of knowingly misleading Americans.

"It led to a colossal failure. 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."... (Read more)
