[Ed. – A blast from the past, confirmed by Obama himself who said of Biden’s candidacy, ‘don’t underestimate his ability to f*ck things up.’]
You have to give President Biden credit for consistency. Unfortunately, he has been consistently wrong. As Robert Gates, former defense secretary in the Obama administration, once put it, Biden has “been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”
Mr. Biden’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan (and former President Trump’s announcement to begin the process) serves political, not military, or national security goals and further adds to Mr. Biden’s already tarnished record of making wrong decisions.
It’s laughable to hear Pentagon spokesman John Kirby last week as the Taliban rapidly advanced to control more and more provinces playing the role of “Baghdad Bob,” who denied the presence of U.S. troops in Iraq, even as TV cameras showed them behind him.
