Is Afghanistan Saigon Redux or Benghazi Redux?
At this point, what difference does it make?
Biden’s bungling pull-out from Afghanistan has shadows of the Iranian revolution, the fall of Saigon and the same lack of accountability we saw after Benghazi.
Honestly, why are these people called “experts” again? Can someone remind me?
As the incomparable David Burge (AKA iowahawk) famously said on Twitter years ago:
Like I said yesterday, these faculty lounge academics have failed us time and time and time again.
And yet despite all their failures, they still skitter around the halls of the Pentagon and State Department like an infestation of cockroaches.
So should we be surprised that the people who brought us Benghazi are now giving us Benghazi redux?
In his interview with George Stephanopoulos, Biden dismissed the horrifying footage of Afghans dropping to their deaths from US planes because, hey, it was “four days ago, five days ago.”
Yeah, it was two days before that interview. But you get his point. Who cares? What difference at this point does it make, says President Benghazi Redux.
I don’t know who the hell thought that having this volatile old man sit down for an interview over his failure in Afghanistan was a good idea, but whoever it was probably won’t be in a position to make any further decisions.
Biden was defensive, combative and clearly unprepared for anything remotely close to a challenging question.
There’s a reason that both times Biden spoke at the White House this week he scampered away like a frightened coward without taking a single question from reporters.
Like I mentioned yesterday, that’s what he did on Monday. And, guess what? We have a second image of him doing it again yesterday after he attacked Republican governors and people who don’t want their kids forced to wear masks in school.
You know what?
It’s better when you can hear the explosion of questions from reporters as the coward high-tails it out of there.
Yet despite Biden’s inability to make the case for the disastrous calamity he unleashed, someone in the White House gave a green light to that interview with Stephanopoulos.
At least when Hillary Clinton made her “What difference at this point does it make” remark to the Senate, she was required to testify there. Biden was under no obligation to do that interview. He didn’t have to set himself up for a Benghazi redux moment. But he did it anyway.
And as with Benghazi, the aftermath of Afghanistan is nearly as disgusting as the event itself.
The excuse-making, the dismissal of those who died, the admission that they have no plan to rescue all the Americans stuck in Afghanistan.
Holy moly. With each passing day this just keeps snowballing.
The only difference with Benghazi redux — other than they haven’t yet arrested some obscure YouTube videomaker — is unlike Obama, who at least stayed in the White House on September 11, 2012, Joe went into hiding at Camp David.
And guess what?
He plans to leave the White House again this week to hide in Delaware for another long weekend.
Benghazi redux is so bad, Vice President “Loom Over Biden like a Turkey Buzzard” is going out of her way to distance herself from this mess.
In addition to refusing to stand behind the President during his excuse-making address on Monday, note Kamala’s body language in this photo tweeted out by the White House yesterday:
How much you wanna bet she wishes she still had the authority to arrest that photographer and toss him in jail like a pot smoker? Ah well, too late, honey. Maybe you shouldn’t have bragged about your role in the Afghanistan decision because now you own it too.
