Disgraced Republican Liz Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, decided to attack former President Donald Trump once again.

This time Cheney is saying Trump bears “very significant responsibility” for the chaos and devastation unfolding in Afghanistan this week.

Cheney said this “didn’t happen in a vacuum” when it comes to the withdrawal from Afghanistan.

“Look, I think absolutely President Biden bears responsibility for making this decision. But there is no question that President Trump, his administration, Secretary Pompeo, they also bear very significant responsibility for this,” she said.

She continued, “They [Trump and Pompeo] walked down this path of legitimizing the Taliban, of perpetuating this fantasy, telling the American people that the Taliban were a partner for peace. President Trump told us that the Taliban was going to fight terror. Secretary Pompeo told us that the Taliban was going to renounce al Qaeda. None of that has happened. None of it has happened.”

Here’s more from the transcript:

CHENEY: This is — it’s a devastating set of circumstances but the delegitimization of the Afghan government, the notion and the Trump administration, the suggestion that at one point they were saying, “We’re going to invite the Taliban to Camp David.” They —

KARL: On September 11th.

CHENEY: Yes. I mean, they — this disaster certainly began — and, look, the notion of we’re going to end endless war, that campaign slogan, what we’re watching right now in Afghanistan is what happens when America withdrawals from the world. So everybody who has been saying, “America needs to withdrawal. America needs to retreat,” we are getting a devastating, catastrophic real-time lesson in what that means.

However, as Townhall points out, Pompeo was firm that “we never trusted the Taliban” and that “we didn’t take the word of the Taliban, we watched their actions on the ground. When they did the right thing and they helped us against terror, that was all good and when they didn’t, we crushed them.”
