President Joe Biden has withdrawn troops from Afghanistan, ending a 20-year offensive against terrorism. Now he wants to use the anniversary of the attacks on 9/11 to take a victory lap — but that may be illegal.
Ethics watchdog group Protect the Public’s Trust requested information on Biden’s use of public lands to tout his supposed success in pulling out Afghanistan, Breitbart reported. PPT has filed a Freedom of Information Act to uncover what may be unlawful.
The group contends that Biden’s “insistence on the August 31 deadline for removal of all troops from the country was driven by the desire to use the notable anniversary as an occasion to make political hay out of his administration’s ending of America’s longest war,” PPT said in a press release. It further stated that if the pullout date was decided for that reason only, “they may have constituted violations of the law.”
