Washington Post fact check accuses Biden of inflating size of Afghanistan military: ‘Bogus’

“Kessler slapped Three Pinocchios on Biden’s assertion, stating in his analysis how Biden barely escaped the worst rating of Four Pinocchios.”

(Fox News) The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler accused President Biden of inflating the numbers after claiming Afghanistan‘s military is bigger than many NATO allies in a fact check on Wednesday.

Biden was forced to return from Camp David this week to deliver a speech on the unfolding crisis in Afghanistan following the withdrawal of U.S. troops….

Since the exit, the Taliban have regained control of key parts of the country and desperate scenes have captured Afghans trying to flee the terror group. In Biden’s address, however, he defended the decision to end U.S. military involvement in the region and argued they left Afghan military in good shape.

“American troops cannot and should not be fighting in a war and dying in a war that Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves,” Biden said on Monday. “We spent over a trillion dollars.  We trained and equipped an Afghan military force of some 300,000 strong — incredibly well equipped — a force larger in size than the militaries of many of our NATO allies.”  View article →
