State Department Now Set to Investigate Biden Administration Over…

Joe Biden’s popularity as President has been on a slippery slope from just about the moment he took office, as the Democrats’ enthusiasm for winning the 2020 election was quickly replaced with the realization that they’d be dealing with the gaffe-prone septuagenarian for at least the next 4 years.

And so, beginning with the border crisis and continuing on through the highly unpopular coronavirus vaccine mandates, Joe Biden has steadily decreased his approval rating among just about every demographic there is, including within the Democratic Party itself.

The most significant drop in popularity came after Biden’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal not only allowed the Taliban to completely conquer the country in only eleven days, but it also forced the American military to abandon our people and our allies in-country and at the mercy of the terror group.

The shocking developments have now even spawned an investigation by the State Department.

The State Department’s inspector general is launching a series of investigations into the end of the Biden administration’s diplomatic operations in Afghanistan, according to State Department and congressional officials, as well as documents viewed by POLITICO.

The reviews by the internal watchdog will focus on the State Department’s Special Immigrant Visa program; Afghans processed for refugee admission into the U.S.; resettlement of those refugees and visa recipients; and the emergency evacuation of the U.S. Embassy in Kabul “to include evacuation of U.S. citizens and Afghan nationals,” according to an Oct. 15 action memorandum to Secretary of State Antony Blinken that was obtained by POLITICO.

And it looks like they mean business.

Diana Shaw, theState Department’s acting inspector general, notified Congress ofher office’s actions on Monday. In a separate letter to top lawmakers obtained by POLITICO, Shaw said her office was launching “several oversight projects” related to the end of the U.S. military and diplomatic missions in Afghanistan.

“Given the elevated interest in this work by Congress and the unique circumstances requiring coordination across the Inspector General community, I wanted to notify our committees of jurisdiction of this important work,” Shaw wrote in her letter, which was sent to leaders of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and House Foreign Affairs Committee, as well as the intelligence committees in both chambers, among others.

The Biden administration has recently attempted to soften the blow of the Taliban takeover by suggesting that the terror group had turned over a new leaf in recent years, but the events that have occurred in Afghanistan in the past few weeks have proven that sentiment to be entirely false.
