“America’s top general said Sunday that the United States could now face a rise in terrorist threats from a Taliban-run Afghanistan,” notes an Associated Press article. The big picture the article goes on to paint is indeed grim:
In June, the Pentagon’s top leaders said an extremist group like al-Qaida may be able to regenerate in Afghanistan and pose a threat to the U.S. homeland within two years of the American military’s withdrawal from the country. …
Based on the evolving situation, officials now believe terror groups like al-Qaida may be able to grow much faster than expected.
While the rest of the free world focuses on the threat the newly empowered Taliban poses, the Biden administration is off in a “woke” world of its own. On Monday State Department spokesman Ned Price “outlined the steps his department was taking to supposedly protect the people of Afghanistan”:
‘We are coordinating closely with Afghanistan’s neighbors,’ he explained, seeking ‘an aligned approach to the evolving situation’ with U.S. partners on the U.N. Security Council. ‘The fruits of that,’ Price said, was a statement from the Security Council that he called a ‘quite strong’ and ‘quite clear’ document.
‘This statement says that the sustainable end of the conflict can only be achieved through an inclusive, just, durable, and realistic political settlement that upholds human rights — including for women, children, and minorities.’
With the twentieth anniversary of 9/11 around the corner and knowing the Islamic terrorist community’s fondness for “historical dates,” Biden is directing all his energies toward ensuring the Taliban use politically correct pronouns and hire plenty of women and minorities to key roles.
How’s that working out so far? Not too well, according to NBC News, which headlines a piece out today “Images of bloodied Afghans contradict Taliban’s claims of moderation.”
One has to wonder whether Biden still believes the claim he made last month that “terrorism from white supremacy is the most lethal threat to the homeland today. Not ISIS, not al-Qaeda: white supremacists.”
