Obama’s Dreams Of His Father

From the annals of either (take your pick) utter tomfoolery or bold faced lies comes this drivel from the official White House spokesmouth: “Psaki says Afghanistan evacuation cannot be called ‘anything but a success.’”

That certainly begs the question of what failure would look like to these jackals, but decorum demands that I respectfully decline to inquire. Instead let’s focus on what Joey and P-saky define as success:

The Biden administration’s attempt to negotiate with the Taliban to help get our people out of Afghanistan safely has resulted in yet another embarrassing defeat.

After sending CIA director William Burns to secretly meet with Taliban leader Abdul Ghani Baradar in Kabul to ask him to extend the August 31 deadline for U.S. troops to airlift American citizens and Afghans out of the country, the deadline remains the same—and Taliban claims another victory over the United States. The plan to have U.S. troops out of Afghanistan by August 31 has been approved by Joe Biden. - PJMedia

Barack Hussein Obama has essentially achieved his purpose of fundamentally transforming America into the paper tiger dream of his and his anti-colonialist African father.

“Barack Obama has made it clear that he thinks the world would be a better and more peaceful place if the United States were too weak to affect the course of events…(he) has slashed missile defense, dramatically reduced investment in future military technologies, and broken promises to our allies. In addition, Obama is transforming our military into a politically correct force that no one will want to join.” – Jed Babbin

It’s a shame we didn’t think to classify “getting our citizens/allies/records and weapons out of Afghanistan ahead of the inevitable Taliban takeover” as infrastructure that both parties could have rallied around. Clearly a more shovel-ready project on earth has never existed. Which is why our inept withdrawal is even more mind-numbingly incomprehensible than usual.
