The Biden Administration now has a humiliating, tragic, international disaster on its watch that will go down in history (if we still have any honest historians) alongside the Bay of Pigs, the fall of Saigon and the siege in Benghazi. If any book is written about Biden’s handling of this latest and most tragic of his string of disasters, it could easily be named “Profiles in Fecklessness.” Biden has ordered 5,000 US troops in to help evacuate people, and there are reports of attacks by US bombers, but not on the Taliban. They're blowing up our own military planes and other weapons that the Afghan forces abandoned before the Taliban can seize them.

Biden was on vacation at Camp David when Afghanistan began to fall apart, and his silence was deafening (even his spokesperson, Jen Psaki, is gone for the week.) Filling the void were replays of his now-notorious July 8th press conference in which he assured us his Afghanistan pullout would be orderly and it was unlikely the Taliban would come back. Other high Administration officials also assured us that a Taliban takeover could be repelled because it wasn’t the type of thing that could happen between a Frida and a Monday --- which is precisely what happened.

Biden is facing heavy criticism from across the political spectrum in the US and internationally.

Former President Trump called on Biden “to resign in disgrace for what he has allowed to happen to Afghanistan, along with the tremendous surge in COVID, the Border catastrophe, the destruction of energy independence, and our crippled economy.” There have also been calls for the resignations of Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark Milley for bungling Afghanistan while focusing on wokeness in the military, Trump’s nonexistent “coup” plot and Tucker Carlson. Meanwhile, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken was reduced to imploring the Taliban to act civilized, which is like begging a charging rhinoceros to behave itself and not trample you.

In return, Biden tried to blame Trump for sticking him with the Afghanistan pullout decision, which I guess was the only Trump policy he thought was not reversible.

But while it would be easy and politically expedient (and not unfair) to blame Biden for this catastrophe, the truth is that the real failure here is of our “intelligence” agencies and the current military leadership. Trump also planned to remove troops from Afghanistan, and his plans also relied on the “intelligence” he was receiving about the relative strength of the Taliban (although I assume that unlike Biden, he would have paid attention to military leaders who’d actually been there.)

Those agencies were completely blindsided by the Taliban’s swift advance and by news that they already had shadow governments set up in various cities and were paying off officials to surrender. Any President’s decisions are only as sound as the “intelligence” he’s given, and both Trump and Biden were assured that the Afghan government was strong enough to hold and any assault would take months and could be repelled. They were devastatingly wrong on every count, and a lot of people should lose their jobs over it, not that anyone is ever held to account anymore.

Biden’s not responsible for the failure of intelligence, but he is responsible for being caught flatfooted and freezing when things began to spiral out of control.

Countless lives will be lost and innocent people tortured, raped and enslaved, and other nations will hesitate to trust us again, because our CIA and top military brass failed miserably. Maybe they were too preoccupied with trying to frame the last President and his associates, or focusing on the “real” threat to America (white supremacists), and couldn’t be bothered to notice what was happening in Afghanistan. In a better world, they’d be going to prison, but let’s hope and pray that the next Republican President – in 2024 – will at the very least issue a blizzard of pink slips to the FBI, CIA, NSA and Pentagon, and have these deadly incompetents and useless political operatives forcibly escorted off the premises.

    Further to previous comment:
    Forgot to mention that I DO have an overactive autoimmune disease; that I DO have severe allergies to drugs and food products. Also...my physician has a list of allergies that prevent a person from getting the mRNA vaccine. But would NOT give me the list...I had to list mine. When I said "tetanus shots" was abruptly told "No! you cannot get any of the vaccines."
    So...there IS a LIST of allergies!!! WHY HAS IT NOT BEEN MADE PUBLIC????
    And...have lost 3-1/2' of intestine directly from immune disease....and thyroid & parathyroids from taking flu shots. (CDC site also said..."Anyone with overactive autoimmune disease should not take any live virus vaccines." (Well...I learned that too late. Biopsy came back "severely diseased-no discernable disease") So..."been there, done that...have 3 "T-shirts"!

    And...I do receive your emails...thank you so much! And I also subscribe and watch your presentations on You Tube. (be careful there...or you will be censored also....have seen this done with many sites....even pastors who dare speak out.

    Jesus, Himself, warned us of all these things that we can see happening in the world TODAY. Matthew 24.

    Thank you for your presentations of truth and your continued service to our country. ???? May God bless you and yours! ??????

    Dear Governor Huckabee, i am already having YT comments and replies on comment threads taken down when I tell the truth about the mRNA CoVd vaccines which only serve to boost the immune systems; dangers to those who already have one of the approximately 50 overactive autoimmune diseases in the USA; "contraindications" to getting the CoVd vaccine (WAS on the official CDC site about 2 weeks ago...now cannot find.) Specific one I was interested in is allergy to DT, Td, DTaP (life threatening reactions to Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis (aka "Whooping cough) or any components. CDC had listed under "contraindications"....NOT "allergies". That has apparently disappeared from their site a short time ago. There are over 100 immune diseases in USA alone; about half overactive. millions may have; many unaware. CDC only interested in about 5 that are human-to-human transmitted. Severe reactions to CoVd (or any component) can be anaphalytic shock (at times can take 3 or more hours to be fatal) or longterm Coma...and/or death.
    Also..."breakthrough" infections to fully vaccinated happening at a higher rate.
    And...virologists say fully vaccinated individuals can "shed" the virus...thereby infecting others.
    Even inventor of mRNA technology says being miss-used. He & 37 experts had a panel on YT last week...now removed.
    FORCED VACCINATION IS INSANE!!! AND DANGEROUS!!! Whatever happened to "My body-my choice"? WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO FREEDOM OF SPEECH???

    Even orgs such as Frontline Doctors are being censored.
    When the most "at risk" are the elderly and those with compromising, underlying conditions....they are the "targets" of the Wuhan virus. And Faucci is just as liable as anyone. World population reduction "ring a bell"? It should..as China has now (fist time in eons) lifted its two child/family restrictions. Why? How many elderly and ill REALLY died from the virus?
    And...what about medications such as HQL and Ivermectin? Along with other vitamins and baby aspirin (clot prevention)..,early treatment DOES work!
    Apologize for the "rant".... but am so tired of being censored....or having people "blow off" the truth!
    cannot help but think of all the Bible prophesies. And....we have lost our freedoms...and....the America we love.

    Gov. Huckabee, Thank you so very much for your Bible verse everyday. Thank you for going to God and then sharing His wisdom and humor with us out here in this big world. I remember when we were staying close to the radio to hear news about the Korean War. Yes, it was a war. Now all these years later we are still keeping our ears close to the radio to hear about a place far away. We pray and know God is in control but we also know that on this earth there is much evil. I believe that biden is evil and those democrats and some republicans are also serving satin and his last battle. Verses such as Psalm 12:17 "The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time on earth and even for evermore." I so want to shout this verse to all those Christians who are being persecuted and killed in Afghanistan. I do believe we Christians here in the USA are going to see this fate also. God Bless!!! Praying for you and your work. Mrs. Claire King Prescott. Az.
