A key member of Congress is demanding answers as to why the Biden administration appears to be covering up deadly failures in President Joe Biden’s botched 2021 withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

U.S. Representative Mike Rogers (R-AL), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, is demanding Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin provide answers and information about the Defense Department’s classified After Action Review (AAR) concerning the Biden administration’s mishandled operation.

Rogers alleges the report given to Congress is heavily redacted and leaves out critical information, even though he and others are cleared, and must be able to, review such details.

In the letter, Rogers wrote:

“I have written to you separately in a classified letter (transmitted June 8, 2023) pointing out multiple discrepancies in the classified version of the After Action Review (“AAR”) concerning the botched and deadly withdrawal of U.S. Forces from Afghanistan. My classified letter also addresses your associated personal reflections (attached as a classified memorandum to the AAR). Sadly, your memorandum does not accept responsibility, and propounds outright untruths, related to the Biden Administration’s actions and inactions in failing to secure a safe and orderly withdrawal of troops and related Non-Combatant Evacuation Operation (“NEO”).”

“(T)he Department’s AAR produced to the House omitted significant portions included in its Table of Contents, including all endnotes and other appendices to the report. Additionally, significant redaction of material in the classified report is not explained,” Rogers writes.

“The Committee relies upon transparency in conducting oversight for the American people, so I hope exclusion of associated documents with the AAR was unintentional and that the Committee can receive an appropriately un-redacted version,” Rogers added.

“While the fog of war is likely to result in mistakes and even tragedy, an honest appraisal of the Biden Administration’s involvement in implementing the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan has still not occurred. Towards this objective, it is incumbent on the Committee and its oversight responsibilities to determine what went wrong and how such a catastrophe can be avoided in the future,” Rogers concluded.

Biden’s mishandling of the withdrawal marked a turning point in his approval ratings, from which he has yet to recover, and is the subject of Articles of Impeachment now before the House.


  1. Biden has the reverse Midas touch, everything he touches turns to something other than gold. He and his handlers (Puppet masters) are coming close to destroying not only our nation but around the world, aka the progressive goal of globalism.
