  1. Those working to get this job done deserve praise. Those spouting hate and blame should be ashamed. “He that troubleth his own house…

    1. Has the current administration spouted anything except for blame? All mindless MSM donkeys collectively owe the world an apology.

    2. @Ginger Grant leaders around the world don’t seem to think it was Trump’s fault, they’re all blaming Biden. Fact!

    3. T-3 Days: Would the last Service Member leaving please turn out the lights and don’t blame yourself about the American civilians and Afghan allies left behind. THAT blame falls onto your Commander-in-Name Only!

  2. Holy smokes! Are we learning anything this evening? Remember 9/11 was 20 years ago. Deadline is August 31st on Tuesday! I guess so. Prayers to Afghanistan from southern Colorado!

    1. @J sorry, that was another one of trumps deals, May 1, and he released all those Taliban prisoners back to Afghanistan. Trump with the big plan! He would have saved your day! He didn’t even carry it through himself. It was time to get out and Biden was the ONLY one to try!

    2. @J Trump handed Afghanistan over to the Taliban. In the Withdrawal Negotiations, Trump only talked with Taliban leaders and didn’t include the Afghan government. Therefore, he gave a green light for the Taliban takeover. I heard Trump say that the deal he made couldn’t be changed. When the Taliban took over everywhere, they released more Taliban prisoners, but ISIS-K members also escaped at that time. Taliban hates ISIS. It was ISIS that did the attack at the airport.

    3. @J trump the bone spur didn’t have the guts to start the evacuation! He left his dirty dial for the oncoming president he not only killed more the half a million people from the virus but helped the Taliban without the Afghan President being invited to the table for is Dirty Dial disgusting !

    1. @JK F1 you do realize that Biden funded police more right? This ain’t a football game dude. Stop rooting for a team.

    2. @Real American Trump negotiated a withdrawal date on May 1st. Remind me who was president in May of this year? Who broke the terms despite the Taliban PUBLICLY warning Biden to keep to the negotiated terms?

    3. @Diane Bannister thank you!!
      Finally someone who knows what they’re talking about.
      Click bait “media” is the biggest virus in this country.
      I’m so tired of people not doing their research before spewing & repeating what they don’t understand. Smh.

    1. News Flash! We share this planet with nearly eight billion people. We breath the same air and drink the same water. Our economy is connected to the entire planet. Do you want America to become another North Korea, isolated and failing?

  3. 74 soldiers died in Afghanistan in the years from 2017 to 2020. The deal that Trump made with the Taliban stated in Part 2, Taliban will take the following steps to prevent any group or individual, including al-Qa’ida, from using the soil of Afghanistan to threaten the security of the United States and its allies.
    The deal was always a failure.

    1. @Jeremy Byington yes all the allies were late in evacuating their civilians and their Afghan translators as well unfortunately! But you cannot fight against an enemy who strappa a bomb on himself and decides to commit suicide and take as many people as he can ! You can see a person coming towards you with a gun but you cannot see when someone is hiding a bomb inside his clothes and mixes himself with the poor Afghan who where waiting to have a chance to get away safely! This terrorists are now the Talibans problems they will have to fight themselves! Hope that they behave better than before and form a civilised inclusive government ! Praying for the Afghan people and for the American soldiers and the allies that they all live that place 20 years is too long to stay there!

    2. T-3 Days: Would the last Service Member leaving please turn out the lights and don’t blame yourself about the American civilians and Afghan allies left behind. THAT blame falls onto your Commander-in-Name Only!

    3. @Lillian Matthews You’re right, Trump had a plan to withdraw all our people and equipment from the country before leaving, but once Biden got in office through a rigged election, he tore up Trump’s evacuation plan.

  4. These four talking heads have all bloody hands from profiting off this 20 year war in one or more ways.
    If it bleeds it leads, but if it burns it earns.” Gore pimps.

  5. All these warmongers are still paraded out and described as “retired ex-” generals and spies, rather than which war contractor’s they’re currently consulting, lobbying for, and on the boards of.

    1. T-3 Days: Would the last Service Member leaving please turn out the lights and don’t blame yourself about the American civilians and Afghan allies left behind. THAT blame falls onto your Commander-in-Name Only!

    2. Yep! Maybe they should start doing their jobs instead of misleading their audience. Journalism got ruined when big money started consolidating.

    3. @William Stall you’re a great American. Why don’t you get behind your president like everyone did when bush drug us into that crap.

  6. As an immigration attorney in Houston Texas, I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand Afghan refugees require US citizenship so they can get benefits like health insurance, welfare, food stamps, etc. On the other hand, I know a lot of talented & hard working legal immigrants who paid $30,000 to $50,000 in immigration fees, taxes for a decade, and still can’t get close to a US green card.

  7. USA working with the Taliban like they worked with the Nazis after WWII in an effort to defeat Russia. ENOUGH ALREADY!!! Broken moral compass in Washington DC!

  8. When they talk about a gun fight, and don’t give details, does that mean somebody (US soldier or Taliban guard) had lost their nerves and fired into the crowd and not at an actual attacker?

  9. A terrorist attack? You mean like driving a pickup truck supposedly loaded with explosives within a block of the seat of government?
    Thank goodness that this Cosplaytriot cult follower wasn’t as religiously fervent so as to give up his own life as the cult follower in Afghanistan.

  10. No worries. Joenis working hand in hand with the taliban. He helped the taliban build back better

  11. The Resistance Holds Panjshir Valley

    Air Supply Through Tajikistan
    If You Want To Help, Send It There

  12. Apparently they had already been coordinating with the taliban.
    Their out of prison & there aren’t they.
    Also, have control & having more meetings.

  13. Biden is doing the right thing, withdrawal of the Americans troops from Afghanistan is the valid step. Don’t blame the guy for things you don’t know
