It’s sickening just how skewed Joe Biden’s priorities were as Afghanistan fell.
Hundreds of Americans are trapped within terrorist hands because of him.
A horrendous phone call is making all of Joe Biden’s lies unravel.
On July 8, President Joe Biden was asked directly about reports that predicted Afghanistan was going to rapidly fall to the Taliban without a continued U.S. presence.
“That is not true. They did not reach that conclusion,” Biden said then.
When pressed on the issue Biden said that the Afghan government had the capacity to fight.
“The Afghan government and leadership has to come together,” he said. “They have the capacity. They have the forces. They have the equipment. The question is: Will they do it?”
Biden was focused far more on painting an optimistic picture rather than evacuating Americans in Afghanistan.
Biden pressured Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani to claim that the Taliban weren’t winning, “whether it’s true or not,” in a phone call on July 23.
“I need not tell you the perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things are not going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban,” Biden said.
“And there is a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.”
At the time the Taliban had already seized much of Afghanistan and was only weeks away from taking over Kabul.
Biden’s suggestion for the situation was that Ghani should give a joint press conference that backed a new military strategy on how to defeat the Taliban, saying: “That will change perception, and that will change an awful lot, I think.
“I’m not a military guy, so I’m not telling you what that plan should precisely look like, you’re going to get not only more help, but you’re going to get a perception that is going to change in terms of how, um … our allies and folks here in the States and other places think you’re doing,” Biden said.
Biden offered aid to Ghani only if he could turn the situation around.
“You clearly have the best military,” Biden said. “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 all the way through the end of August, and who knows what after that.”
Biden knew that the Afghan government was falling and yet he neither took steps to keep the regime from crumbling nor did he make any effort to get Americans out of harm’s way.
His actions created the crisis that led to 13 U.S. service members being killed in a terrorist attack.
There are 27 students from San Juan Unified School District in Sacramento alone who are trapped in Afghanistan.
These children are victims of Biden’s lies and incompetence.
