President Joe Biden on Sunday said he had no qualms about removing U.S. troops from Afghanistan, telling reporters he had a decision to make, a judgment “no one else can or will make,” and that he is convinced he’s “absolutely correct in not deciding to send more young women and men to war for a war that is not warranted.”
Answering a question about a CBS poll published earlier Sunday that found that just 49% of Americans consider his actions competent – compared with 56% in April – Biden defended his decision for the U.S.’ chaotic exit from Afghanistan, which resulted in the swift takeover of the Afghan government by the Taliban.
“I haven’t seen that poll,” Biden said, laughing when he was told it was from CBS News.
“I had a basic decision to make. I either withdraw America from a 20-year war, that depending on whose analysis you accept, cost us $150 million a day for 20 years or $300 million a day for 20 years. Lost 2,448 Americans dead 20,722 wounded. I either increase the number of forces and keep that going or end the war,” he said.
“I decided to end the war. The only reason we are in Afghanistan is because this is the place from which (Osama) bin Laden attacked the United States of America. If this had been in other Middle Eastern country where he could have easily moved from, we would have never gone to Afghanistan.
“The question is when is the right time to leave? Where are our national interests? Where do they lie? The idea that we are in a situation where we cannot recognize that terrorism has metastasized around the world and the need for us to focus on other parts of the world which create an even greater danger of another al Qaeda-like operation can’t be ignored. We are in a number of places where we are doing that without permanent basing American forces there.”
Biden, under a barrage of criticism from U.S. allies, including NATO and Group of Seven members, also expressed confidence that Americans “will have a clear understanding of what I did, why we did it. That’s the job. My job is to make judgments, to make judgments no one else can or will make. I made them; I’m convinced I’m absolutely correct in not deciding to send more young women and men to war for a war that is not warranted.”
The president also touted the U.S.’s evacuation efforts, saying troops have evacuated nearly 33,000 people from Afghanistan since July, including American citizens, citizens of NATO allies and “our partners” and their diplomats and embassy staff, and promised that Americans who wants to get home “will get home.”
“We are also working to move our Afghan allies who stood with us side by side and other vulnerable Afghans such as women leaders and journalists out of the country,” Biden said.
He also acknowledged that the evacuation of thousands of people from Kabul will be “hard and painful, no matter when it started, when we began.”
“There’s no way to evacuate this many people without pain or loss and heartbreaking images you see on television. It’s just a fact. My heart aches for those people you see. We are proving that we can, though, move thousands of people out of Kabul. … But we have a long way to go. A lot can still go wrong. To move out 30,000 people in just over a week, that’s a great testament to the men and women on the ground in Kabul and our armed services.”
Biden said the U.S. has expanded its efforts to help evacuate Americans who’ve struggled to reach the Kabul airport and may extend the Aug. 31 deadline for a full U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“We’re working hard and as fast as we can to get people out,” Biden said Sunday at the White House. “That’s our mission, that’s our goal.”
The president declined to provide more detail about U.S. efforts to assist people outside of the Kabul airport perimeter. Biden said about 7,800 people were evacuated over the weekend, bringing the total since Aug. 14 to more than 25,000.
Biden’s Handlers, since he is no longer able to think on his own, are desperately trying to spin the blowback from his horrible handling of the Afghanistan Pullout into a fallacious argument that all the dissent is about the act of pulling out of Afghanistan.
Former President Trump had already devised a strategy for leaving Afghanistan. He had already reduced the number of American Military in Afghanistan.
He was doing it the right way.
Who in their right mind and with any common sense whatsoever would close Bagram Air Force Base, take our troops out of the country, and THEN tell the civilians to leave?
Joe Biden did.
And, as Former President Trump has said, this is the greatest Foreign Policy Humiliation in American History.
Our enemies around the world now know that we have a spineless demented old fool for President and “Woke” Military Leaders advising him who are nothing but a bunch of namby-pamby pencil pushers whom General George S. Patton would slap en masse like Moe slapping Larry and Curly in a Three Stooges Short.
It is obvious that Biden has completely left reality behind.
His Handlers can no longer cover for him.
Even Main Stream Media Outlets, like CBS and CNN, are beginning to turn on him because it is too dangerous to their continued existence to continue to cover for him.
Even Biden and his supporters attempting to blame this fiasco on Trump is not working.
Reason being, the whole wide world can see very clearly that Biden is not fit to be the President of the United States of America.
“Sleepy Joe” is off his rocker.
It is time for him to leave the Presidency and be put back on his rocker on his front porch in Delaware…where he can wave at the cars going by.
