Axios: Kinzinger: Blinken must accept some blame for Afghanistan crisis
Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) told CBS News on Sunday "a lot of people bear blame" for the chaotic U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, "and the secretary of State is one of these."
Why it matters: Secretary of State Antony Blinken is due to testify before Congress this week, including the House Foreign Affairs Committee, on which Kinzinger serves.
What he's saying: "It would be nice — and keep in mind, even under the prior president I would say this exact thing — for some people to just take responsibility," Kinzinger told CBS' "Face the Nation," stressing that he's against "armchair quarterbacking."
The other side: Blinken has previously defended the Biden administration's handling of the U.S. troop withdrawal, blaming former President Trump for empowering the Taliban.
