Father of the war in Afghanistan, President George W. Bush, has made a statement on the recent Taliban takeover.
Don’t get excited. It’s not an apology.
It’s a plea that Americans now accept thousands of Afghan’s displaced by the conflict.
In a new statement, the former president claimed that the United States has the responsibility and resources to help refugees and should “secure safe passage for them now, without bureaucratic delay.”
“Laura and I have been watching the tragic events unfolding in Afghanistan with deep sadness,” Mr. Bush said. “Our hearts are heavy for both the Afghan people who have suffered so much and for the Americans and NATO allies who have sacrificed so much.”
He continued by saying “the Afghans now at the greatest risk are the same ones who have been on the forefront of progress inside their nation,” calling the conflict an “urgent humanitarian crisis.”
President Biden has also expressed his desire to accept an unknown number of refugees.
It’s doubtful that they’ll move any refugees to any of the cities THEY live in or work in, but they’re quick to judge Americans who fear the rise in refugee population.
