Biden says Afghanistan withdrawal was always going to be ‘chaotic’

Seemingly determined to double down on the humiliation that has befallen the United States amid the collapse in Afghanistan, President Joe Biden said on Wednesday that the chaos currently being witnessed by the world was inevitable and that there was nothing his administration could have done differently to prevent it, according to the Daily Caller.

Sitting down with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, Biden stood firm on his decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan and accepted essentially no responsibility for the stunningly swift and devastating manner in which the Taliban seized power.

Attempting to elicit some kind of acknowledgment of error leading up to the horrifying scenes from the preceding several days, Stephanopoulos asked Biden, “So you don’t think this could have been handled – this exit could have been handled better in any way, no mistakes?”

“No, I don’t think it could have been handled in a way that, we’re gonna go back in hindsight and look – but the idea that somehow, there’s a way to have gotten out without chaos ensuing, I don’t know how that happens. I don’t know how that happened,” Biden answered.

When quizzed about whether the administration bears any of the blame for — among other things — the catastrophic sight of Afghans so desperate to flee the Taliban that they clung to American transport planes, with some falling to their deaths, Biden angrily retorted, according to the New York Post, “That was four days ago, five days ago!” despite the fact that video of the latter had been captured two days prior.

Biden’s handling of the situation in Afghanistan has been so disastrous, according to Jim Geraghty at National Review, that it begs the obvious questions of just what is wrong with the president and of what can be done to mitigate the damage he continues to do.

Geraghty pointed out that in the thick of the collapse of Kabul this weekend and beyond, Biden went four days without making a single public appearance, turned up Monday to read a brief teleprompter speech after which he took no reporter questions, and then journeyed back to Camp David where he had spent the weekend.

As images of desperate Afghans trying to make their way to the airport in Kabul continued to be transmitted across the world, Biden re-emerged Wednesday to deliver another short speech – this time about COVID-19 and nothing else – after which he also declined to answer questions or take any accountability for the crisis, a decision Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera deemed “pitiful” and “pathetic.”

Whether Biden’s bizarre and defiant chat with Stephanopoulous is evidence of his cognitive incapacity, absence of empathy, or a combination of the two, it led liberal journalist Jon Ralston to opine in obvious exasperation, “This is so bad. No mistakes? No responsibility? No contrition? My God. That sound you hear is Democrats on the ballot in ’22 shuddering.”
