The 20th anniversary of 9/11 falls tomorrow. Joe Biden’s abject surrender in Afghanistan led to the deaths of U.S. soldiers and a lot of innocents. Biden needs to be held strictly accountable for his abominable leadership (if you care to call it that).
Here are excerpts from my latest at American Thinker:
On Thursday, August 26, Joe Biden made a contribution to the terror war… against us. On that infamous day, a suicide bomber attacked the Kabul airport, killing 13 U.S. soldiers and at least 170 Afghanis. How many of the dead Afghanis were American citizens is unreported. The deaths didn’t have to happen. Joe Biden made them happen.
Subsequent to the terror attack, in a televised address, Biden brazenly declared what an “extraordinary success” his cut-and-run was from Afghanistan. Only in the morally upside-down world of progressives and jaded D.C. players can ignominy, disaster, and deaths of innocents be the stuff of a victory lap.

The men and women (among them first responders) who died on 9/11 and America’s fighting men and women who’ve since surrendered their lives to defeat the Islamic terrorist menace deserve far better from a president. These braves souls didn’t die in vain. They and we the living deserve far, far better from a commander-in-chief than the cut-and-run that Biden gave us in Afghanistan. God bless America.

The catastrophe unfolding in Afghanistan is simply the latest Big Fail by the Biden administration. The other Big Fail, still very much underway, is the dissolution of the southern border. Two million illegals are expected to invade the nation this year alone, bringing among them hardened criminals, terrorists, and Covid. But no matter, petty tyrant Democrats want to force us to mask up again and force us to vax up to “stop the spread.” Is anything more grimly laughable than that?
Inflation continues to climb, taking bigger bites from paychecks. Biden’s binge spending, with an able assist from Mitch McConnell and 18 other establishment Republicans, promises to stoke inflation even more.
And this is happening in just seven months of a four-year Biden-Harris term. If you don’t think things can get any worse, they will. Greater crises are in the offing. Democrats have repudiated Trump’s very sensible, very successful policies, foreign and domestic, and now through the next 3.5 years there will be hell to pay. Bad decisions will have terrible consequences. So, buckle up your seatbelts. The ride is going to get awfully rough.
In case you missed it, here’s my latest at American Thinker, which is aptly titled: “Three and a Half more Years of Biden-Harris.” The link is here. Thanks for reading!

As this is being written, Afghanistan is on the brink of falling to the Taliban. Recall that we went to Afghanistan in the aftermath of 9/11 to root out Al Qadi. We ended up staying for 20 years. We stayed to nation-build … to transform Afghanistan into a peaceful, Western-oriented nation (more like a collection of tribes). Now, the U.S. is on the brink of failing spectacularly.
It’s important to note that I soured on the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan about the time Donald Trump decided to seek the presidency. Millions of Americans had come to that conclusion before I did. They were right much sooner.
