It’s not overstating things to say that the nation’s 46th commander in chief’s handling of the situation in Afghanistan may be the worst foreign policy debacle of the last 100 years.

Following a deafening silence over the weekend from the administration, President Joe Biden took to the podium Monday afternoon to try and control the messaging around his team’s massive failure.

By that time it was already too late.

According to a new poll by Convention of States Action and the Trafalgar group released Monday morning, nearly 70% of all Americans believe Joe Biden has mishandled the situation in Afghanistan. This includes 89% of Republicans, 75% of Independents, and a plurality of Democrats at 48%.

Biden told the American people that the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan would be different from Saigon.

That part is true. It’s far worse.

We’ve already heard reports of the Taliban executing detainees, raping women, and forcing girls as young as 15 to marry terrorists.

Heartbreaking video emerged this week of Afghans desperately clinging to the fuselage of an Air Force transport plane; some held on long enough to fall to their deaths.

The passage of time will reveal the total number of casualties, but it’s obvious right now that Afghanistan will once again become a breeding and launching ground for global terrorism.

While Afghanistan falls, Biden has been busy twiddling his thumbs, casting blame.

The president initially indicated he wouldn’t address the crisis for a “few days,” only to backtrack and move up his address to Monday afternoon (Aug. 16, 2021).

In his written statements, he’s blamed President Donald Trump for the Taliban’s rise to power, citing the peace talks between the Trump administration and the radical Islamist group.

Meanwhile, the President’s underlings have fumbled and stumbled their way to some of the most ludicrous claims imaginable.
