If you thought the situation in Afghanistan couldn’t get any worse – you were wrong.
The Biden administration didn’t just completely fumble the U.S. withdrawal, now its messaging is so wrong that White House officials are actually telling blatant lies to the press.
For example, Jen Psaki just made an outrageous claim about Afghanistan despite clear evidence to the contrary.
Joe Biden’s handling of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan will likely go down as the worst military decision Americans have ever seen.
But in true Biden form, he’s trying to manipulate the facts to paint a better picture, and his staff is doing the same thing.
On Monday, during the White House press briefing, Fox News’ White House correspondent, and Jen Psaki’s nemesis, Peter Doocy, asked Psaki if Biden understood that most of the criticism against the withdrawal from Afghanistan was about Americans being “stranded” in Kabul.
“Does the President have a sense that most of the criticism is not of leaving Afghanistan? It’s the way that he has ordered it to happen by pulling the troops before getting these Americans who are now stranded. Does he have a sense of that?” Doocy asked.
Doocy’s question, as they often do, made Psaki’s skin crawl and the Press Secretary grew visibly annoyed with him.
Psaki said it was “irresponsible” of Doocy to say that Americans are stranded in Afghanistan, which they undeniably are.
“I think it’s irresponsible to say Americans are stranded. They are not. We are committed to bringing Americans who want to come home, home,” Psaki snapped back.
Interesting comment coming from the White House Press Secretary given all reports stated otherwise.
Not one to let Psaki skate through, Doocy followed up, asking if it was the “official White House position” that “there are no Americans stranded.”
Psaki responded by giving a rather bizarre, almost incoherent, “Bidenesque” response.
“I’m just calling you out for saying we are stranding Americans in Afghanistan when we have been very clear that we are not leaving Americans who want to return home. We are going to bring them home, and I think that’s important for the American public to hear and understand,” Psaki stated.
Doocy never claimed the White House was “stranding Americans in Afghanistan.”
He simply asked if the President understood many were upset that there were Americans left in Afghanistan. Still, once again, someone from the Biden White House cannot give a straightforward, factual answer.
The footage is out there, and it clearly shows the chaos in Kabul.
The White House can try all they want to cover it up, but Afghanistan is in crisis, and Americans are indeed stuck there.
And in the end, the one responsible is Joe Biden.
