Kabul airport bombing puts Biden in a hot seat

As this is written, at least 13 US troops including Marines and a Navy Medic have been killed in suicide bombings in and around the Kabul airport in Afghanistan attributed to an offshoot of the Islamic State.

It may get worse, especially as many Americans will be left behind and tens of thousands of Afghans who were allied with the United States may well be butchered.

Amid the death, destruction, a number of prominent Republicans are already clamoring for President Joe Biden’s resignation or, failing that, his impeachment.

There is no real chance for an impeachment given that Biden’s Democratic party controls both houses of Congress and, therefore, all key committees in both the House and Senate.
