1:01 am
before another natural disaster strikes haiti and alongside victory for some years, new president managers to win an election after standing for 6th time. ah. despite the unfolding crisis in the canister, the us president is strongly defended. his decision to pull out of the country, joe biden made his 1st public appearance more than a day or 2. the taliban seized control of the capital cobble in a live televised addressed. biden said there was never a good time to withdraw and endless military deployments were not the solution. i didn't conceited, however, that event quicker than expected. although he blamed afghan leaders for the collapse, development should have taken place. i stand squarely behind my decision. after 20 years, i've learned the hard way that there was never a good time to withdraw us forces. that's why we're still there. we
1:02 am
were clear eyed about the risk. we planned for every contingency, but i always promised the american people. i'll be straight with you. the truth is, this did on fall more quickly than we had anticipated. so what's happened? have ghana stan political leaders gave up and fled the country. the afghan military collapsed sometime without trying to fight. if anything, the developments of the past week reinforce that any u. s. military involvement of gas and now was the right decision. the mixture of cannot and should not be friday, you know, or, and dine in a war that afghan forces not willing to fight for themselves. she ever turns
1:03 am
is in washington, dc for us. so she had an unapologetic tone from president biden. how's it going down there? i've got funded medical fundamental problem, but has been seen everywhere there, which is that the biden keep saying the buck stops with me, but then he's blaming afghans. he's naming everyone else for the chaos that we've been seeing over the last few days. but what he was trying to do that quite clearly was keep the american public opinion on the big picture. yes, sean's in recent days have been gut wrenching. but did you want us to stay? that seems to be the message quite, quite clearly. and, in fact, he's using the argument about the cables. he's using the pictures that we've been saying to suggest that's all the more reason why we have to get out of i am the president who's finally going to do it. the implication being brock obama was elected on a promise of withdrawing us troops from an unpopular failed war. he did not,
1:04 am
donald trump was elected all the same problems. he did not, although the framework of the withdrawal was signed by donald trump. it was joe biden who extended it and changed that framework, but he's saying, look in the end, no matter what we're seeing right now, where you have to remember that this war was a failure and we have to get out. and i am going to finally do that, so that's what they're, what they are hoping for. if they keep say, well, it will, it will happen a bit quicker than we'd expected. and that's a gray area which no administration spokes person is truly addressing. because even as biking is making the case that they now have the intelligence capabilities to deal with any threat, it got us on the fact remains that they didn't have the intelligence capabilities even what was going to happen and cobble as soon as they, as soon as they were, they were beginning to leave the leave all mass. the final troops will begin to evacuate mass, the final troops, embassy stuff,
1:05 am
so that these are the contradictions that are being that the now being highlighted by critics of the president. having said that, those critics that have a plan either and many of those critics, the ones who said, despite public opinion, despite of knowing what a failure the african mission has been for the us. and we have the ask amazon papers that were leaks in 2019, which were the internal cables from administration offered ministration, which said, quite clearly that come the rebuilding afghanistan and, and all the, all the great advances in africa and that you were basically complete nonsense. and they were knowingly lying to the american population and the world at large about 5 . but anyway, many of these folks who are criticizing biting has to be said didn't have a plan oliver, for how the u. s. could leave in an orderly manner. and in fact, many of them have long said that they wanted a long term presence without garrison in perpetuity, and that's what biden has on his side. and he's, i said also that if the taliban data tracking troops that,
1:06 am
that have to carry out the evacuation the, the response would be swift. you have to imagine that the thinking is it simply would not be able to tell about best interest to hamper or impede the evacuation now because they do not want they want. but how about have one, why would they want to escalate, escalate the situation and cobble now? i mean that presumably is what the administration is banking on. but the problem then comes with the thousands and thousands of afghans who need to be evacuated. and well, actually we saw there was a shelter in place order for the remaining us citizens. it, i've got a son to, to, to, to not move anywhere. how do you evacuate all these people, especially of a little action necessarily in the vicinity of the u. s. embassy and cobble one of the plans moving forward that i think that's going to be a very, a very key issue now. and again, you're seeing, you're seeing the narrative off the u. s. once again, we haven't seen so many failed interventions, leaving their allies behind. she ever times you thank you very much. earlier i
