Ex-Clinton Advisor on Afghanistan: 'We Lost the War, Biden Had Nothing to Do With It'
'All Joe Biden’s doing is just telling us what time it is'
Democrat and former Clinton strategist James Carville called the media's coverage of Afghanistan “hysterical and stupid” following Joe Biden's disastrous withdrawal from the country.
Carville claimed the United States had already lost the war in Afghanistan, which has seemingly been cemented with Biden's decision to withdraw U.S. forces.
“There’s no elegant way to lose a war,” he said.
“We lost this war 15 years ago."
"All Joe Biden’s doing is just telling us what time it is," he added.
"And the hysterical and stupid coverage of the mainstream press has been awful," he said.
"Just read New York magazine or Josh Marshall of Talking Points.”
Carville claimed the resurgence of COVID-19 was Biden’s biggest hurdle.
“[I]t looks bad. The country looks bad."
"When you lose a war, you don’t look good," he said.
"This war was lost a long time ago. And Joe Biden had nothing to do with it. He wanted us out before that.”
But the Trump's original withdrawal strategy was botched by Biden, who moved the dates and failed to honor agreements that would have prevented the chaos
Neon Nettle reported that the Taliban has been with 75,000 vehicles, 600,000 weapons, and 208 airplanes/helicopters, according to watchdog group Open the Books.
CEO & founder of Open the Books, Adam Andrzejewski, said:
“We've made the Taliban into a major U.S. arms dealer for the next decade."
“They now control 75,000 military vehicles."
Last week, Neon Nettle reported Biden's administration moved to end protections for U.S. citizens trapped abroad shortly before the botched withdrawal stranded thousands of Americans.
In June, the Biden admin moved to dismantle a Trump-era system designed to protect American citizens trapped overseas.
The Washington Free Beacon has obtained a June 11 memo sent around the State Department regarding the plan.
Biden told ABC News on Wednesday he did not believe the withdrawal could’ve happened without "chaos ensuing."
"When you had the government of Afghanistan, the leader of that government, getting in a plane and taking off and going to another country, when you saw the significant collapse of the Afghan troops we had trained, up to 300,000 of them just leaving their equipment and taking off," he said.
"That’s what happened."
