CIA Secret Talks with Taliban Leave Questions

The President made us look like a country full of clowns. Straight up fools. And desperate Americans are still being evacuated while Biden drools on his own chin.

The only thing I’ve heard from our so-called leader is that he cancelled a weekend trip to Delaware. As if that’s somehow enough to compensate for this mess he created.

So what exactly did the CIA accomplish by meeting with the Taliban? I have to wonder when Democrats will realize they picked the wrong guy. And they picked the wrong gal to back him up. Please tell me our CIA has some kind of plan. One that makes sense.

As Fox News explains:

CIA Director William Burns secretly met with Taliban leader Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar in Kabul on Monday, a senior U.S. official confirmed to Fox News.

First reported by the Washington Post, the rendezvous was the highest-level in-person meeting between the Biden administration and the Taliban since the group took control of Afghanistan‘s capital earlier this month.

The meeting took place as the U.S. continued to evacuate Americans still remaining in Afghanistan and Afghan allies who had assisted U.S. forces before their government fell to the Taliban.

France, the UK and Germany have all mentioned extending the Aug. 31 withdrawal deadline in order to carry out an orderly exit, the BBC reported.

“We are concerned about the deadline set by the United States on August 31,” Jean-Yves Le Drian, France’s foreign minister, told the network. “Additional time is needed to complete ongoing operations.”

“The British position is we want to stay longer if it is possible to do so,” U.K. Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said, according to The Associated Press.

Wallace, however, told Sky News that he is pessimistic about the U.S. extending their timeline.

“I think it is unlikely,” he told Sky News. “Not only because of what the Taliban has said but if you look at the public statements of President Biden I think it is unlikely.”

In fact, at this point, no one extended the deadline. Further, clueless Biden gave a speech about infrastructure and climate change while ignoring Afghanistan. And to add insult to injury, the Administration won’t even tell us how many Americans are trapped.

According to another article, Americans are pissed at Biden’s stance.

“I hate to break this to @potus but he could spend 30 trillion on infrastructure and it still won’t erase the stain of his surrender in Afghanistan,” Bloomberg Opinion columnist Eli Lake tweeted.

“The White House can’t feel the moment. They aren’t in reality. It’s all a white paper to them. Biden talking about infrastructure and climate change while Americans are trapped,” former DNI Ric Grenell wrote.

Let’s get real Democrats.

If Trump were in office, this would have NEVER happened. Never. We had a President that supported our military. A leader that respected our troops and took seriously his role as their commanding officer. Now, we have a buffoon and dead bodies on his watch.  And there is nothing comical about the sh*t show Biden puts on.

The Pentagon said in a Monday briefing that it will consider leaving American troops in Afghanistan past Aug. 31, in consultation with Biden and allies, but dismissed the idea of the U.S. military taking back Bagram Airfield to speed up evacuations.

Meanwhile, Taliban officials told Reuters that they are unwilling to extend the deadline and the “occupation” by U.S. forces. The group warned about “consequences” if the deadline is extended.

The U.S. ramped up its evacuation efforts in recent days, getting roughly 21,600 people out of Afghanistan in a 24-hour period that ended early Tuesday morning. A senior U.S. official is describing it as “an historic operation in scope and scale.”

According to Gen. Stephen Lyons, who’s in charge of U.S. Transportation Command, a C-17 is taking off from Kabul every 48 minutes.

Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby said the progress has been aided by cooperation from the Taliban.

“Thus far, and going forward, it does require constant coordination and deconfliction with the Taliban,” Kirby said. “What we’ve seen is, this deconfliction has worked well in terms of allowing access and flow as well as reducing the overall size of the crowds just outside the airport.”
