President Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan says we’re now trusting the Taliban in the latest reality-bending report on Afghanistan’s fall.
He said, “The Taliban have informed us that they are prepared to provide the safe passage of civilians to the airport and we intend to hold them to that commitment.”
Sullivan was then asked, “Do you believe them?”
“Yes,” he responded.
This even led one Korean reporter to ask whether Biden planned to withdraw from their country or others as well based on similar logic.
Sullivan answered there were no such plans, but the unbelievably irresponsible Afghanistan exit plan has led to people starting to question anything Biden may attempt next.
Yes, Americans were ready for the military to leave Afghanistan. No, they were not ready to leave thousands of Americans behind and give the nation to the Taliban as soon as the military left.
Military leaders knew the potential existed for this exact scenario to happen, but Biden did it anyway. By the way, Trump led for four years and the Taliban did not gain an inch in progress. With Biden, it only took seven months to give up the entire nation.
The Middle East is continuing to ramp up violent rhetoric and actions as the leadership in the White House is seen as weak and unresponsive. Instead of leading the nation, Biden was on vacation. If it gets really bad, he’ll send Harris on another visit, but has no plans to travel too far from home.
