Afghanistan Shows Biden To Be A Weak And Failed President

While Afghanistan, and with it American global credibility, blows up, Biden and the Democrats have been trying to change the subject. But our geopolitical disaster will not be ignored by friends and foes alike. Cal Thomas understands that.

Thomas Sounds Off

Thomas: What has happened in Afghanistan will not stay in Afghanistan but will have a ripple effect throughout the region and beyond.

In remarks Friday at the White House, President Biden again proved he is out of touch with reality. Responding to criticism that America’s credibility has been damaged due to his precipitous withdrawal of U.S. troops, Biden said, “I have seen no question of our credibility from our allies around the world.”

Several allies have been critical, among them German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who met with Biden at the White House last month. She called the withdrawal “an extremely bitter development.” We were not in this alone, after all. It is right for our allies who fought valiantly with us to feel betrayed.

Perhaps the most powerful and emotional criticism came from Tom Tugendhat, a member of the British House of Commons. Tugendhat, who served in Afghanistan, called Biden “shameful” for disparaging the Afghan military. He said he had lost friends there and accused Biden of having “torn open” old wounds with a withdrawal that appeared to be a “defeat.”

Biden Caught In Lie

Biden has also claimed to have been uninformed by his own intelligence agencies that disaster awaited a rapid pullout. That’s not what intelligence sources are saying in leaks to the media.

This bogus claim further erodes his credibility. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin contradicted the president when he said Taliban fighters have been harassing and beating Americans trying to flee Afghanistan. Biden said he has “no indication” Americans are being prevented from reaching the Kabul airport. Reaching the airport and getting on a plane are not the same, as the Taliban have it encircled with checkpoints.

Does anyone know what is going on in this administration? Aside from its claims not to know how many Americans remain in Afghanistan and its inability to ensure their safe passage out of the country — which could lead to the taking of hostages as in Iran in 1979 — the long-term consequences of our poorly executed non-policy will continue, perhaps for years to come.

Former Israeli diplomat Yoram Ettinger writes in his newsletter: “In 2021, the 14-century-old vision and strategic goal of Islamic terrorism is not limited to the territory of Afghanistan. It is driven by fanatic imperialism, striving to subordinate the ‘infidel’ West — and especially ‘The Great U.S. Satan’ — which is perceived to be the key obstacle on the way to Islamic global domination…

As we’ve seen after 20 years in Afghanistan, they are patient and we are not. Through immigration, a higher birth rate and achieving positions in Western governments, they intend to methodically rule the world. They count on the West’s weakness and exhaustion to help propel them to victory.

After only seven months in office, President Biden has shown himself to be a weak and failed president. What our enemies make of it will have serious repercussions far beyond however long his administration lasts.
