'Biden is going to own these ugly images': Top Republican on House of Foreign Affairs Committee slams the president over US troops skulking out of Bagram in the middle of the night

Rep. Michael McCaul, the top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee has accused the Biden administration of not having a proper plan for the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan, placing the blame square in Biden's hands.

'We are going dark in Afghanistan and there's going to be consequences long-term to this. And at the end of the day, when we fully withdraw, the devastation and the killings and women, humanitarian crisis, fleeing across the border into Pakistan, President Biden is going to own these ugly images,' McCaul (R-Texas) told Fox News Sunday.

The US left Afghanistan's Bagram Air Base after nearly 20 years by shutting off the electricity and slipping away without notifying the base's new Afghan commander, who discovered the Americans' departure more than two hours after they left, Afghan military officials said.

It has cost the US military 2,312 American lives and $816 billion, according to the Department of Defense.
