Retired Marine Corps bomb technician Johnny Joy Jones, who lost both legs fighting in Afghanistan, said Friday on “The Five” that President Joe Biden’s continued failure to lead as commander-in-chief leaves veterans wondering whether He was betrayed, while the Delaware Democrats blame everyone except themselves for their failures.

“It’s not about blaming Biden for the crisis. We can talk about that. It’s about being a leader,” Jones said. “Strong leaders make bad decisions. Every good leader makes a bad decision… but they move through it.”


As a leader, President Biden is a coward. He blames the Afghans, he blames Trump and he blames his own generals – he says ‘buck stays with me’, I decided unanimously – you know how you got out of it Exit. You don’t look like a strong leader.”

Jones said Biden “shouted his way through” a “victory speech”—which was not helpful in trying to convince the American people that he understood the gravity of the situation:

“It’s not just the fact that we got out of Afghanistan. It’s not just the fact that we have a 20-year war on which we have to claim failure. It’s posturing,” he said, referring to some of Biden’s top military. Brass also deserves scrutiny for both his decision-making and his recent statements:

“You have a Marine general sitting down and saying the Taliban are our allies,” he said of Centcom Commander Kenneth “Frank” McKenzie Jr.

“You almost have the whole administration saying one thing and doing another – so you have about 22 million veterans who are like ‘Wow. Were we betrayed? What happened here?’ You have to understand the tone and tenor of the men and women fighting to end this war. [Biden] does not.”

Former Representative Sean Duffy, R-Wis., added to Jones’ remarks, adding that the Afghanistan crisis has successfully filtered through left-wing media for the American people because, unlike the coronavirus, border crisis or economic inflation, population He knew about the 20 year long war.

“In Afghanistan … the media had to report the story. So when they report it, they see that it is a complete failure. 13 service members died, they left billions in our devices . To Joy’s point, we look at leadership. You want leaders to change course with the facts on the ground,” he said.
