It was just a few moments ago, in fact, when a I published a piece bemoaning VP Kamala Harris for her inability to hold herself accountable on the question of Afghanistan. My polemic was less of a surgical strike as it was a carpet bomb. I went on to attack many on the Left for what I called a “savant-like inability to hold themselves of any of their leftist acolytes accountable to any standard“. No sooner is the piece published then I refresh my news feed and I see the buck, once again, being passed. This time by Harris’ boss, of course the gaffer-in-chief Joe Biden.
In a groveling and evasive speech given my Biden earlier today, Biden stated, devoid of courage or stoicism, “When I came to office, I inherited a deal cut by my predecessor — which he invited the Taliban to discuss at Camp David on the eve of 9/11 of 2019—that left the Taliban in the strongest position militarily since 2001 and imposed a May 1, 2021 deadline on U.S. Forces,” Biden said. “Shortly before he left office, he also drew U.S. Forces down to a bare minimum of 2,500.”
In response to the speech, none other than Donald Trump had clearly kept the powder of his rage on this point in a permanently dry state and was at the ready to open fire. Which he did in awesome form. To pull statements from TrendingPolitics.com,
“First Joe Biden surrendered to COVID and it has come roaring back,” Trump said while referring to the COVID-19 Delta variant. “Then he surrendered to the Taliban, who has quickly overtaken Afghanistan and destroyed confidence in American power and influence.”
“The outcome in Afghanistan, including the withdrawal, would have been totally different if the Trump Administration had been in charge,” Trump continued. “Who or what will Joe Biden surrender to next? Someone should ask him, if they can find him.”
