November 5, 2021 by

By Kelsey Bolar ~ The consequences of President Joe Biden’s badly mishandled Afghanistan withdrawal are old news for the left-wing ruling class. Congressional leaders have moved onto the president’s so-called Build Back Better agenda, where they duke it out over how many billions of taxpayer dollars to spend on “tree equity.” (Is $2.5 billion enough?)

August 31, 2021 by

By Thomas Spoehr ~ Viewing the chaos, death, and destruction accompanying the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, Americans have many unanswered questions. Cable news anchors repeatedly quiz their guests with questions such as, “Should the U.S. have abandoned Bagram Airfield in early July?” Others rightly ask, “How could the U.S. have come to be dependent on […]

Biden Still In Excuse-Making Mode

August 28, 2021 by

By James Carafano ~ The blame game continues. In his latest speech on the unfolding chaos in Afghanistan, President Joe Biden fingered the terrorist group ISIS-K for the bombing at the Kabul airport. He then delivered more excuses why the hole he dug isn’t getting deeper. After a 90-day intelligence review, his administration still can’t figure out if COVID-19 […]

By James Carafano ~ President Joe Biden stepped out of the Oval Office on Friday and delivered yet another defense of his Afghanistan withdrawal. For those convinced he’s in over his head, he did not disappoint. His excuses were as pathetic as ever—but there was more in these remarks. Biden, an inept statesman and a […]

Cowardly Biden Hides From The Press On Afghanistan

August 21, 2021 by

2

By Tim Graham ~ The very supportive media environment around President Biden has turned suddenly sour over this administration’s shoddy handling of Afghanistan. This debacle shouldn’t be buried and ignored by the press, like they’ve tried to do with the border crisis. But Biden’s gone back to hiding as a strategy, as he did in […]

Taliban Fighters Now Well-Equipped For Decades

By Thomas Spoehr ~ As if it were not enough that the Taliban took complete control of Afghanistan—imposing its will and murderous tactics on innocent citizens; endangering Americans still present in the country; and complicating efforts to extract Afghans who provided important support, such as translators—it gets worse. The Taliban has also seized tens of […]

Fall Of Afghanistan Seen As Historic Failure For Biden

By Fred Lucas ~ When candidate Joe Biden was asked if he would bear some responsibility for the outcome of a U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan if the Taliban took control of that country, he answered, “No, I don’t.” “Do I bear responsibility?

Running Away From A ‘Nation-Building’ Mess

August 16, 2021 by

0

By James Carafano ~ Where America got Afghanistan wrong is “nation-building.” That’s a myth. Nations don’t build nations. Nations rebuild themselves. President Joe Biden, predictably, learned the wrong lesson. The opposite of nation-building is not running away. It is being realistic. After World War II, Japan rebuilt Japan. West Germany rebuilt West Germany. Sure, America helped, but […]
