Adopting Obama’s foreign policy of appeasing Islamists is really working out for Joe. And America.
“The likelihood that there’s going to be a Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely,” Biden claimed not all that long ago.
Now he’s pleading with the Taliban to spare our embassy and avoid another Benghazi, instead of doing the sane thing and evacuating now.
American negotiators are trying to extract assurances from the Taliban that they will not attack the U.S. Embassy in Kabul if the extremist group overruns the capital in a direct challenge to the country’s government, two American officials said.
I’m sure the Taliban and the various Al Qaeda and other Jihadist elements in the country who have been killing Americans for nearly two decades can be trusted to keep their word.
If not, Jen Psaki can come around to lecture them about how, “The Taliban also has to make an assessment about what they want their role to be in the international community.”
“American diplomats now are trying to determine how soon they may need to evacuate the U.S. Embassy should the Taliban prove to be more bent on destruction than a détente.”
The time to evacuate the embassy was the withdrawal. Biden should be evacuating now. Not waiting around to see if the Taliban will play nice.
Biden administration officials insist that there are no immediate plans to significantly draw down the embassy’s staff of 4,000 employees, including about 1,400 Americans, as U.S. troops formally complete their withdrawal from the country.
Combined with about 600 troops, Biden is leaving 2,000 American hostages to fortune. This is criminal insanity.
But don’t worry, Joe’s got a plan. Bribe the Taliban.
Mr. Khalilzad is hoping to convince Taliban leaders that the embassy must remain open, and secure, if the group hopes to receive American financial aid and other assistance as part of a future Afghan government.
Paying Islamic terrorists not to attack our embassy.
1. It’s criminal treason
2. It doesn’t work. Obama was paying off the Islamic terrorists in Benghazi. They still attacked us.
Mr. Neumann described a push-and-pull strain between the Pentagon and the State Department in similar situations, given the military’s responsibility for carrying out evacuations and diplomats’ duty to maintain American assistance and influence even in danger zones.
The Pentagon is right. Get Americans out of there or Biden will have even more blood on his dirty hands.
