Afghanistan Vet: Biden Taking Responsibility For Challenging Evacuation

 

The Biden administration and U.S. military forces continue to conduct the most successful evacuation of a war lost by the United States. Afghanistan war veteran Laura Jedeed tells Lawrence O’Donnell that with war “there is no happy ending when you lose,” and foreign affairs analyst David Rothkopf says the way it’s currently being handled is the “best of all the options that are available to us right now.”

    1. The Biden Administration just laid blame on the Obama administration for not having the “Courage” to get this done……..Biden was apart of the Obama Administration…

    2. Matthew Neddeau gotta make multiple accounts so we can spread mis information. Ariwon no dat!

  1. “It’s really quite amazing. It’s not perfect, we’re leaving people behind. That’s awful… It should have gone better. It should have been more organized.” By the way. 80,000 out of how many? 4 days left, clock’s ticking.

    Foreign Affairs Analyst..- “There is no way to end a war and LOSE the war and make it look like you’re winning the war. The current admin. has shown a lot of character. The last 3 presidents didn’t have the courage to do it.”

    1. yeah I love how she boasts about it being the biggest evacuation ever. LMFAO how did people vote for this type of incompetence ?!

    2. @Mixed Music Arts I believe the statement was for non- military “people”. Why didn’t already arranged, or at least make a mention, that American civilians should vacate Afganistán. It is trump’s non doing. Indeed.

    3. “GET OUT !…GET OUT !….
      THE BUILDING IS ON FIRE
      SAVE YOUR CHILDREN !…
      SAVE YOUR DOGS AND CATS !…
      SAVE YOURSELF !!!!!!”….

      “dweeb”…
      “trump, trump, trump, trump, tr….
      What’s that ‘smoke’ ?..
      trump, trump, trump, trump, trump, t

    4. ABC, CBS and especially NBC/MSNBC…
      “Mostly peaceful bombings, today, as President Biden leads the Greatest Evacuation from Kabul (mostly NOT Americans) harkening back the days of Dumbkirk! While, on our Southern Border… we’ll, there is no border as hundred of thousands rush into the country to escape the Taliban. On the financial side, whatever “free money” you got to stimulate is now officially LESS than the inflated prices of groceries and gas… so call this a progressive eight months!”

    5. @George Rady nice propaganda. So you’re obviously against free press and free speech. Why do you hate America so much and why don’t you just leave.

  2. “The most successful evacuation”, is akin to celebrating that you’re onboard the best lifeboat from the Titanic. Only the Titanic had more survivors. MSNBC is even more predictable than Fox. Did you send flowers to the Journalism funeral?

    1. I don’t blame Biden. He didn’t get us into this. The same media that was cheerleading Bush for starting two loosing wars of aggression and occupation and one over false pretense of weapons of mass destruction, is trashing Biden. I’m just glad we have a president that had the courage to do what three presidents couldn’t. But here yo

    2. It is not leaving Afghanistan, it is leaving people behind. That is the issue, he is the Commander in Chief.

    3. @Heather LaPoint No,they are trying to make it seem as if this would have happened under any administration…..Which is not true…..ORDER::::::EVACUATE THE PEOPLE…….DESTROY THE INTEL AND WEAPONS NOT GOING WITH YOU…….THE REMAINING MILITARY LEAVES……..BUT WHAT BIDEN ADMINISTRATION DID……SHUT DOWNTHE MOST STRATEGIC AIRPORT…..REMOVE THE MILITARY TO CREATE A CRISIS .LEAVE THE TALIBAN A AIR FORCE,INTEL ON ALL WHO WORKED WITH THE UNITED STATES AND ALLIES………PRETTY MUCH SABATOGED THE WHOLE PULL OUT OF AFGHANISTAN…..THEY GOT VIDEO OF TRUMP SAYING IN 2017 ,THAT IF YOU PULL OUT QUICKLY THERE WOULD BE A VACUM….NO SANE PERSON PULLS OUT THE MILITARY BEFORE PULLING OUT THE CIVILIANS…..NO SANE ADMINISTRATION LEAVES A RADICAL FORCE 600,000 GUNS, AMMUNITION, STACKS OF MONEY.ALL THE ID OF THOSE WHO WORKED WITH THE U.S. …….WHO SCREAM…DEATH TO AMERICA…….YOU ARE A FOOL ….You and all trying to spin this in to something good. YOU LUNATICS!!!!YOU DON’T CARE THAT THEY ARE STEALING VISAS FROM AMERICANS OVER THERE. THERE ARE MORE AFGHANS COMING TO THE UNITED STATES AND THERE ARE STILL AMERICANS LEFT BEHIND.NOT JUST A FEW EITHER. THERE ARE THOUSANDS………SO KNOW THAT YOUR WRONG AS YOU MAKE MORE STUPID COMMENTS…..NO MORE TALK!!!

  3. They’re giving these numbers like we should be impressed but these numbers just seem like they were unaccounted for people that we were willing to leave behind before we started an uproar over all of this.

    1. @Heather LaPoint you missed the part where it is mathematically impossible by the TALIBANS time. You missed the president admitting they will leave americans behind on that date and use other means to extract them. You missed the part where he left 80 Billion dollars in weapons, cars, helicopters etc with twrrorists(while attacking the second amendment at home).

    2. “GET OUT !…GET OUT !….

  4. The truth shows it was important for use to be there in support to keep Afghanistan from being a terrorist base. That’s history that’s facts. All that genders studies you want Americans to remember goes out the window when terrorist strike. Why do liberals think bad guys won’t hurts us if we are nice to them.

  5. I think most criticism for the evacs come from the fact that the Admin didnt pay close enough attention to the speed at which taliban forces were sweeping across the country. Had they acted sooner, they could have worked with the Afghan forces to properly secure safe exits and track down allies at risk. The fact they didnt and now all exits are controlled by the taliban, makes the evacs of internationals, US and allied nations citizens as well as natives at risk a much more dangerous and difficult task. Those of us living in reality understand trump and his cowardly admin set this crisis in motion when he surrendered Afghanistan to the taliban without securing any national security strategy to get people out or prepare the Afghan forces, however the Biden admin have dropped the ball and have difficult times ahead. Its not just about getting US folk out, we have a duty to save Afghani allies and those at most risk too.

    1. Finally a reasonable comment! Scrolling through the comment section is like wading through crap…a lot of crap. I always have to remind myself that, although the majority is reasonable, the minority still consists of millions of people.

    1. Your right. It’s 50 times worth. The terrorist got 85 billion in planes, helicopters, weapons etc Biden the hair sniffer left them you demoNrat. 2022. Bye bye turds

    2. @Gary Katzenmaier
      Hi !… I’m Joe Biden…….

      Did you know dog hair
      doesn’t smell
      NEARLY as good,
      as little girls’ hair ?….. ….

  6. > The Biden administration and U.S. military forces continue to conduct the most successful evacuation

  7. “Most successful evacuation” are you kidding me? You brought 2500 troops home only to send 6000 back for the US citizens you abandoned!

  8. Leave it to MSLSD to spin for Joe. I bet it took them days to find some vet that did want to unload on this old fool.

  9. Militarily it was NOT a lost war. We had control and Afghan women, men and children had a better life for the past 20yrs. America leaving now makes it a loss for the Afghan people.

    1. This administration retreated and surrendered literally everything including the embassy. That is a loss and pathetically weak and embarrassing. He should be removed from office for leaving AMERICA prisoners of war. These people are lying sociopaths

    2. @Brandon Gadles I 100% agree. I am also highly irritated the Biden administration has most of the news propaganda channels stating the Afghan military did not fight and allowed the Taliban to take over. The facts according to U.S. military service members state the Biden administration did nothing to support the Afghan army as the Taliban marched all across the land. What good are 208 aircraft, 75,000 vehicles (20,000 of which were Humvees and 2,000 were armored vehicles), 599,000 weapons, and 16,000 night vision goggles without guidance, fuel and ammunition? No intelligence or logistical support? Zero supplies while they were being marched on? Mind boggling Biden is blaming the Afghan people. What were they supposed to do once they ran out of fuel, ammo and supplies. Giving up was their only option. Biden offered them zero support while the CIA and Defense Dept watched in real time as they practically took over in one week.

    1. What human being would stand by and back this pathetic weak administration. It’s disgusting. Character? Capacity? What in the world are these evil entities talking about???

  10. People don’t care if they don’t have a seat. Just put them on the plane & let them sit/stand on the floor.
