Mike Rogers: ‘Shocking’ for Biden Admin. To Say that They Were Surprised by Events in Afghanistan

‘The intelligence, for months, has said that this thing is deteriorating quickly’

EXCERPT:

ROGERS: "Well, I mean, to say that they were surprised by events is a little bit shocking, because the intelligence, for months, has said that this thing is deteriorating quickly. It was a combination of messages that were being sent to the Taliban. In negotiations they started talking about, 'Well, would you leave our embassies alone?' Taliban said, 'That’s a clue.' When our last warrior commander, Scott Miller, packed up and flew out about a month ago, that sent another very strong message. So, we moved all of our ability to have air strikes, to keep them back seven hours away. And so all of these factors led to this really horrific decision that is going to get a lot of very innocent people slaughtered.”
