As I previously reported, President Joe Biden briefly broke out of vacation mode Friday to address the ongoing crisis in Afghanistan.
And, as you might expect, his “speech” was nothing more than blame-shifting and avoiding journalist questions.
“But the point was that although we were in contact with the Taliban, and Doha, for this whole period of time, at some point it wasn’t expected to be a total demise of the Afghan National Force, which is 300 persons,” he said.
He continued: “Let’s assume the Afghan National Force had continued to fight and they were surrounding Kabul. It would be a very different story. A very different story, but the overwhelming consensus was that they were not going to collapse…”
Biden turned his back to the reporters, who were still asking questions.
One of them wanted to know the big thing that’s been on everyone’s mind.
