Foreign leaders who bungled Afghan withdrawal removed; why not in US? | Beaufort County Now | Bunglers out in British, Dutch cabinets, but NOT in US cabinet

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

The leaders who bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal are being removed from office in European countries, but those in the US who did a whole lot more bungling have kept their positions.  Considering that US bungling was much worse than that of our European allies, this is the reverse of what should be happening.

Secretary of State Blinken, Secretary of Defense Austin, and woke General Mark MIlley are all still in office and do not look like they are going anywhere.

The UK did more than the US to rescue its citizens, sending elite SAS commandos into Kabul to retrieve its citizens, something the US failed to do at all.  But still there was bungling, particularly poor vetting of those allowed on evacuation flights.  In a cabinet reshuffle, the Foreign Secretary who oversaw the evacuation is out of his job.  He has paid the price for his bungling.

In the Netherlands, two cabinet ministers responsible for sub-par performance in the Afghan evacuation have been forced to resign.  The Defense Minister and Foreign Minister have both been forced to resign, after parliament passed separate motions to censure them for their poor performance.

The failures of Blinken, Austin, and Milley were far worse than those of these British and Dutch cabinet officials.  Why are they still in office?

Why are they still in office? Because we no longer have law and order and a broken judicial system. We have been told, "It is ok to lie if you are not under oath". Politician have long been exempt from telling the truth. We need to send 90% of them home. Try to clean the Sewer.
