A government watchdog claims that Biden’s botched pullout from Afghanistan has left tens of thousands of Afghan allies behind, and the president’s efforts to rescue and relocate them are being undercut by “bureaucratic dysfunction and understaffing.”

“The U.S. promised to resettle its allies in safety, but the United States is failing,” stated the stark assessment from the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR). 

The SIGAR 2023 High-Risk List report was published on Wednesday, which details the significant threats to the $8 billion that the United States has given to the Afghan people after its withdrawal in August 2021.

The report was released as Afghanistan experiences a “humanitarian catastrophe” brought on by the violent Taliban government, which seized power after the United States withdrew.

The hearing is titled “The Biden Administration’s Disastrous Withdrawal from Afghanistan, Part I: Review by the Inspectors General,” and it is taking place before Congress on Wednesday. Inspector General John Sopko and watchdogs for the Defense and State Departments, as well as the U.S. Agency for International Development, will be the participants testifying.

They will be providing legislators with updates on their individual analyses of how the Biden administration handled the pullout, which resulted in the deaths of 13 U.S. service members and the displacement of thousands of additional Americans and Afghan allies.

James Comer (R-Ky.), chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, said in an announcement regarding the hearing on Wednesday that, “…this Administration not only continues to offer justifications for the self-inflicted humanitarian and national security catastrophe, but senior officials are actively obstructing meaningful congressional oversight.”

The White House has denounced GOP-led criticism of its approach to the Afghan conflict as “politically motivated” and charged Congress with failing to move legislation that would increase the number of people eligible for special immigration visas to resettle Afghan nationals.
