As I’ve said before, this is what the Biden administration is going to be remembered for: failing in Afghanistan. At least, that’s what I’m hoping anyway.
Hopefully, he doesn’t screw up even worse than this, but knowing Biden, it’s extremely possible.
I honestly don’t think that we’re even close to learning all there is to know about what happened leading up to the Taliban takeover, the bombing that took place that killed 13 of our soldiers, and the botched rescue attempt that left hundreds of Americans behind.
Prior to the fall of Afghanistan, Joe Biden and the then Afghan President Ashraf Ghani had a phone call to discuss what was going on.
Biden told Ghani to downplay what was happening and to downplay the strength of the Taliban.
For what? This does nothing. Pretending like something isn’t as bad as it is, does not make it any less severe. But that’s how Democrats think, isn’t it?
This is what we’ve seen them do with everything else. Remember, Antifa doesn’t even exist in their eyes. Minneapolis was must mostly peaceful protesters. Never mind the burning buildings in the background.
The transcript of that conversation between Biden and Ghani was leaked and it tells us all we need to know.
Take a look at some of the excerpts from the leaked transcript:
“You know, I am a moment late. But I mean it sincerely. Hey look, I want to make it clear that I am not a military man any more than you are, but I have been meeting with our Pentagon folks, and our national security people, as you have with ours and yours, and as you know and I need not tell you the perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things aren’t going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban.
And there’s a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.”
You clearly have the best military, you have 300,000 well-armed forces versus 70-80,000 and they’re clearly capable of fighting well, we will continue to provide close air support, if we know what the plan is and what we are doing.”
“But I really think, I don’t know whether you’re aware, just how much the perception around the world is that this is looking like a losing proposition, which it is not, not that it necessarily is that, but so the conclusion I’m asking you to consider is to bring together everyone from [Former Vice President Abdul Rashid] Dostum, to [Former President Hamid] Karzai and in between.”
“If they stand there and say they back the strategy you put together, and put a warrior in charge, you know a military man, Khan in charge of executing that strategy, and that will change perception, and that will change an awful lot I think.”
