Joe Biden’s inept bungling of the Afghanistan situation has placed American citizens in a situation most people would never have believed possible – the facilitators of 9/11 that took the lives of more than 3,000 Americans 20 years ago are now hunting down and killing U.S. citizens in Kabul and other Afghan cities.
Suicide bombers at the gates of the American-held Kabul Airport are blowing themselves up killing allies and U.S. soldiers as Biden orders U.S. troops to cut and run abandoning allies and Americans including children condemning them to certain death.
The Biden administration’s lack of leadership has led to a massive hostage situation for Americans trapped on the ground according to combat veteran and Fox News commentator Pete Hegseth. On Monday, August 23, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby couldn’t even answer a simple question, like how many Americans remain, opting instead to say that they can’t be sure because it changes by the hour.
An American woman names Fatma pleaded by phone for help to Fox News. She says she’s stranded in Afghanistan and that the Biden administration appears to be ignoring her pleas a day after White House press secretary Jen Psaki pushed back on the allegations that U.S. citizens were being abandoned there.
“We are stranded at home,” said the woman to Fox & Friends. “We can’t get to the airport. When we try to get to the airport, we either get beaten up or we are afraid for our lives,” she said.
“He better get his act together or we may still experience Biden’s Little Big Horn, or another Iran Hostage crisis,” says Amelia Island, Florida resident Bill Craun, a former U.S. Army Airborne Ranger Captain and mercenary who spent 15 years fighting the Taliban. He’s the author of the recently published “Working the Kill Zone, a book that vividly depicts the brutality and viciousness of these medieval savages.
“Biden won’t do anything to retaliate,” believes Bill. “There are five million people in Kabul and thousands surrounding the airport trying to get in. Collateral damage would be unacceptable. If I was Taliban, ISIS, or Al Qaida, I would not let the Americans all simply go, I would punish them on their way out. Allah would be pleased,” says the man who has witnessed the brutality of those murderous fanatics and understands their warped mindset.
Even far left-kook California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff totally contradicted Biden on the evacuation of Americans and troop drawdown in Afghanistan. He said it was “unlikely” the Biden administration would be able to evacuate Americans and allies from Afghanistan by the Aug. 31 deadline that Biden had mandated.
Biden is adamant that he just wants to leave, consequences be damned, He’s leaving. He doesn’t care. His administration is disengaged, and Biden is inept. If he had all his faculties he would be more dangerous. We have no president and no leadership. We have a squinty-eyed disoriented old fool and the lasting damage that he’s doing right now will be substantial.
The blame for the humiliating and disastrous fall of Afghanistan mostly goes to a blundering, clueless, and spineless Joe Biden. But he got help from America’s intelligence community and the Abbott and Costello team of the State Department’s Antony Blinken and Defense Department head Lloyd Austin.
The Taliban told Biden “get out” by August 31. Has any other U.S. Commander in Chief been ordered by an opponent to “get out” by a certain date and then frantically and cowardly rushed to comply? He has disgraced the presidency, the troops, and America.
They told us it would take the Taliban at least 90 days to capture Kabul, if ever. It took them a week. And along with taking over the entire country, they are now one of the most militarized nations in the world, thanks to all the lethal weapons Biden left behind. Let’s hope they can’t read the owner’s manuals. If they can’t there are evil folks in Iran, Somalia, Syria, Nigeria, etc. who’ll be happy to have them.
For what he’s done Biden deserves to be impeached for treason and dereliction of duty and as Commander in Chief he should then be court martialed and sentenced to prison for betraying the country, deserting his post and abandoning the troops on the field of battle.
