‘Disaster… bigger than Saigon’: US Afghan war veteran who lost both legs slams Biden’s ‘horrendous’ exit strategy in RT interview

The US pullout from Afghanistan has been “completely botched” and demonstrates Washington’s lack of political will to do things right, a US Afghan war veteran told RT, adding that the war lasted for too long in the first place.

The way the American troops withdrew from Afghanistan was “a blunder on a worldwide scale” that made many Afghan war veterans feel “let down” and “angry,” Gabriel E. Martinez, a veteran who served in the United States Marine Corps and lost both of his legs to a mine blast in Afghanistan, told RT.

This is a disaster. This is bigger than Saigon.

The chaotic withdrawal, which saw the US troops abandoning their military equipment and munitions at their Afghan bases and virtually leaving thousands of civilians who worked with the US and its allies to their fate was a wrong move on all accounts, Martinez believes.
