The fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban is a disgrace to the entire United States. Yes, most Americans wanted our troops out of the country, after 20 years of fighting. But most agree that Biden did an absolutely terrible job of it. The crisis we are seeing now was totally avoidable, had we a real president in office.
The Taliban took over the country in a matter of days. Things got so bad, so quickly, that the Kabul airport shut down. Thousands of Americans are stranded. The State Department cannot guarantee their safety as they journey to the city for evacuations. And now, the Taliban is warning the United States that they better be gone by August 31, or else.
Joe Biden, blissfully unaware of reality, claims everything will be fine by the end of the month. He claimed there will be no problem with getting our people out before that time. If he doesn’t, then who knows what the Taliban might do.
But Democrat Adam Schiff, member of the House Intelligence Committee, had some bad news.
Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill following a classified intel briefing, Schiff said that it’s “very unlikely” evacuations in Afghanistan will be over by August 31 due to the overwhelming number of Americans, Afghan allies, and potential refugees currently stranded in the region amid an increasingly hostile security threat…
“It’s hard for me to imagine all of that can be accomplished between now and the end of the month.”
“We had 11,000 people in a single day,” he emphasized. “Nonetheless, given the logistical difficulties of moving people to the airport and the limited number of workarounds, it’s hard for me to see that being fully complete by the end of the month.” [Source: Breitbart]
Adam Schiff is no friend to conservatives or anyone that disagrees with Joe Biden. He is a Democrat and has every reason, politically, to prop up and defend Biden’s decisions. So, for this man to be saying it is unlikely that we’ll get everyone out by August 31—you know it’s pretty bad.
Schiff was part of a classified briefing given to members of Congress. That means he knows much more about the situation in Afghanistan then the public does. He would have reason to want to “massage” the information, so that the administration looks better than it does.
Even with that factored in, the man couldn’t hide the truth. It is unlikely, very unlikely, that Americans and others in danger will be out of Afghanistan by August 31.
This is because the Taliban is in control of the country and is already showing hostility. Reports suggest they are seeking American allies to punish. Americans are being robbed of their passports. Some stories are truly grim, with civilians being beaten and killed.
And that’s before the Taliban’s red line. The terrorist group warned that there will be “consequences” if U.S. and NATO forces aren’t gone by August 31. But with thousands of people still stranded in the country, that means many civilians could be left behind.
None of this would have happened, had Biden not made such a rash decision. And even today, he refuses to own up to it.
For someone like Adam Schiff to be telling the truth, you know this administration has really lost its way.
