Harris says she had key role in Biden’s Afghanistan withdrawal decision
The vice president confirmed she was the last person in the room before Biden made the decision to move forward with withdrawing U.S. troops.
Vice President Kamala Harris confirmed Sunday that she was the last person in the room before President Joe Biden made the decision to pull all U.S. troops out of Afghanistan.
In an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union,” Harris was asked about being the last person in the room regarding major decisions, something that Biden has said is important to him in his working relationship with the vice president. Harris confirmed that was the case regarding the move to pull U.S. troops out of Afghanistan by Sept. 11.
One thought on “Keep THIS in your memory for events yet to come”
Would it not stand to reason, whether Kamala Harris had a key role, or was the last person in the room, there would always be a record left of any major decision made by someone as important as the President of the United States, and also of any special detail such as who was present on the occasion of the decision?
And the wording was: ‘the last person in the room before’ he made the decision, which implies there were others obviously there as well to hear the decision (though, to me, it could be interpreted that the others had left, and she remained the last person there ‘before Joe Biden … etcetera’). So, what is the point here, apart from the fact there was, or might have been more than one witness? And the fact she and Biden share responsibility for what will have transpired as a result of the decision? (Not a responsibility I would ever want — as all kinds of momentous events are likely to proceed from there onward, more momentous than they ever would have wished, in keeping with the rugged energy of the place that is Afghanistan).
