‘Joe Biden’s Saigon’: Biden Ripped for July Assurance of Orderly Afghan Pullout

As a hasty American withdrawal and rapid Taliban takeover continues in Afghanistan, many conservative pundits and politicians have slammed President Joe Biden for previous comments on July 8 which all but guaranteed the current scenario was impossible, having boasted of the Afghan army’s capabilities while declaring, “There’s going to be no circumstance where you are going to see people being lifted off the roof of an embassy of the United States from Afghanistan.”
