​The top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee — which plans to release a report this week on the military withdrawal from Afghanistan — knocked the Biden administration for its “complete lack and failure to plan” the exit.

Texas Rep. Michael McCaul, the ranking Republican on the panel, said there were “many sins” committed during the botched pullout that resulted in the deaths of 13 US service members and the abandonment of thousands of Afghans who assisted the US in its 20-year war.

“There was a complete lack and failure to plan. There was no plan and there was no plan executed,” McCaul said in an interview Sunday on CBS News’ “Face the Nation.”

“I think the State Department probably didn’t have the resources it needed to carry out an evacuation of this size and enormity,” he continued.

“They had 36 consular officers at HKIA trying to process hundreds​ ​of thousands of people,” he lawmaker said, referring to the chaotic scenes surrounding Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul last year.
