Taliban’s recapture of Afghanistan a ‘permanent stain on the record’ of Joe Biden

can i deal with the people who are jumping on a bandwagon now it’s a very emotional bandwagon and i understand why but these are the people who have said nothing for months and months and months about making sure that the people who helped australia’s defence force and the australian embassy in afghanistan over the 20 years that we were in that part of the world these people said nothing with their tv shows about the need to evacuate as many people from afghanistan who had helped australia as possible perfect example on the project last night where the emotion was turned up to 11 when frankly it’s too late but we’ve been doing stories for weeks now on the number of the interpreters trying to get back taking years of applications years and years and years like it’s pretty gross to use people and then just leave them yeah because that’s what’s happened in fact it’s not what’s happened you know it and i know it because here are the actual facts something that you didn’t hear last night on the project something you don’t see on the 6 pm news and i don’t know why has every single person who’s helped australia been taken out no but eight and a half thousand people from afghanistan have come to australia’s refugees since 2013. 1800 of them were people who were working as interpreters or helping the adf 430 of them have come in since april i repeat has every single one come out no should they of course but the idea that the government’s done bugger all is just not true and the truth right now is the chaos that is existing in afghanistan means there’s a very serious debate that has to happen inside our defence force and at the highest levels of government which is are you willing to risk an australian life to go and pick up those that are still left if you think that’s okay cool but you don’t have to live with the consequence of the worst possible news coming back out of a rescue mission the prime minister does since april we’ve been able to get 430 a bit more than that of those locally engaged afghan employees people working with us and their families out of afghanistan and here in into australia and they’re already here we’ve resettled about 1800 over the course of these past many years we shut down our embassy in may in anticipation of these types of events we are still working on to ensure that we can safely remove people from that situation with our partners and our allies i can’t go too much into the operational details of this but let me say this about our presence there we went there to stop osama bin laden and to stop al-qaeda having a base of operations in afghanistan and that’s what was achieved so when all else fails and i understand the emotion involved in it i share the emotion i share the frustration i share the anger that exists from lots of people here but it’s not binary it’s not all or nothing australia has done its part will everyone be saved sadly not but in part that’s because of what we know has been coming remember the people who criticized australia for closing its embassy a couple of months ago well that turned out to be a very smart decision because australia has not had to go through the experience that the united states is currently going through an embarrassing disgraceful display supposedly the great strategic mind that is joe biden was telling people this just a couple of weeks ago about what would happen when eventually the american troops finally pulled the pin afghan troops have 300 000 well-equipped as well as quipped as any army in the world and an air force against like 75 000 taliban it is not inevitable the likelihood there’s going to be the taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely but of course you have seen the disgrace that is the information that was so wrong all that they just weren’t telling us about the truth of what happened with the afghan army as i told you last night people weren’t being paid for months due to the corruption that exists in that country and when the time came they didn’t even fire a shot trying to push back the taliban at all the taliban now ends up with the very equipment that the americans helped fund for the best part of the past 10 years it is a permanent stain on the record of joe biden and because joe biden isn’t donald trump well inevitably the history books will somehow judge him better than donald trump but donald trump did not oversee what happened in afghanistan yes he wanted the troops to pull out but this idea that somehow he made a deal that couldn’t possibly be undone is garbage they want to undo the wall they want to put back the iran nuclear deal but joe biden who was on holidays when all of this was taking place apparently needed to be convinced to come back and address the nation in the united states today he’s not in the oval office tonight instead he’s back on holidays and he didn’t even engage with the central issue which was the failure to plan what happened this year i stand squarely behind my decision after 20 years i’ve learned the hard way that there was never a good time to withdraw u.s forces and unbelievably a media that has covered up for him for oh so long that’s looked the other way through all of his presidency well it’s officially shown that the emperor has no clothes the president also said we didn’t get them out earlier because many didn’t want to go well many didn’t want to go because people like president biden were saying it was highly unlikely that the taliban would overtake that country so there are failures on so many levels i think the honor of the united states depends on getting those afghans out i think the next month here lester’s going to be horrendous for him public relations wise this is going to be a propaganda tool on the 20th anniversary of 9 11. i was appalled there was such a profound bold face lie in that speech the thing that they were most concerned about was with the optics of a chaotic evacuation well they got exactly what they were most concerned of by failing to do what was right when we could have done it i am appalled that the president didn’t say was we need to be talking about how we’re going to get every single one of these people out by the way america has 20 000 interpreters and military assistance people they need to get out you’ve seen photos of them being able to shove 650 into one plane a plane people were literally holding on to and died because of course they weren’t on the inside and meantime there’s sort of this weird part of reporting that’s taking place now of course to be on the ground is way harder than sitting here and opining from the other side of the world but have a look at the strange juxtaposition of this reporting from cnn on the ground in kabul they’re just chanting death to america but they seem friendly at the same time it’s utterly bizarre this is a form of reporting we’ve seen before from cnn remember in the middle of burning buildings at the height of the blm riots where it was fiery but mostly peaceful so feel free not to trust cnn to give you the full picture
