The crisis in Afghanistan is not getting better. Joe Biden’s callous and unplanned withdrawal has put many lives in peril. His short-sighted decision has armed the Taliban with state-of-the-art weapons. And he can’t even get Americans out of the country.
With the Taliban taking control of the country, the commercial airport in Kabul shut down. Biden and his mismanaged Pentagon are scrambling to find ways to evacuate civilians (though reports show he is clearly prioritizing Afghans, not Americans). Since this is the Biden administration, it is being handled as well as a circus run by a six-year-old.
Biden had vowed to be out of Afghanistan by August 31. But it is very unlikely he can evacuate everyone in need by that time. The Taliban is giving Joe no wiggle room, since they clearly have more power over the situation than this “president.” But after making a threat to the United States, only one person gave the right response. It wasn’t Joe.
President Joe Biden said on Sunday that he may keep U.S. forces in Afghanistan past the end of the month to continue evacuations…
After Biden’s comments, Taliban spokesman Dr. Suhail Shaheen said that the terror group would hold the Biden administration to the August 31 deadline…
“If the U.S. or UK were to seek additional time to continue evacuations — the answer is no. Or there would be consequences,” Shaheen said…

A little too crass for you, perhaps? At least Crenshaw is standing up to this group of killers. Joe Biden is a coward who disregarded the advice of seasoned intelligence officers and military personnel. Like everyone he’s done in the White House, Joe made a hasty decision and is now scrambling to fix it.
(The same as the border crisis, the stimulus bill that caused inflation, and the vaccinate rollout disaster.)
Meanwhile, Joe lacks the resolve and courage to confront a terrorist group that was previously living in caves.
At times, we’ve had to wonder who Joe was actually working for, the United States or the Taliban? (Or, perhaps China, who has interests in Afghanistan?) Biden has abandoned not only Americans and Afghans, but all our allies who were serving in the foreign land. From England to France to Germany, NATO leaders have expressed outrage that Biden made such a mess.
Yet we do not see a shred of backbone from Joe. This “president” refuses to admit he’s wrong, while at the same time showing enormous cowardice when discussing saving American lives.
With just a few words, Crenshaw is showing the kind of attitude an American leader should have. He is not putting up with the threats of a group who rejected our deals and quickly took over a land they do not have claim to. There is zero reason why the U.S. should be taking orders from a group of drug pushers and murderers.
Perhaps Crenshaw should be in the White House and Joe Biden in an old folks’ home?
