11:01 pm
believe nobody behind. >> the joe biden administration is managing that as well as we can. >> is what america is all about. leaving nobody behind. >> could this have been done and what orderly manner? >> i respectfully disagree. sean: americans held hostage, held behind enemy lines and tonight we began one month before the fighting season and this was the deadline for withdrawalit, if they follow through, they knew if they harmed and the americans were killed inul the allies, they knw the consequences that they would be dire. and according to president trump no matter what the united states
11:02 pm
would maintain control and opportunity. we own it, we are keeping it, but then came joe biden. the self-proclaimed foreign-policy expert in his coolest advisors arbitrarily pushing a withdrawal date to august. okay. during the peak taliban fighting season. and he did nothing as the terrorists began what was a full-scale assault on the afghan highlights allies which started in april, may and june, and insf fighting back at any point, pushing back on the taliban and holding them accountable is donald trump said that he would, stopping their advance, joe biden ordered a full-scale retreat abandoning base after bayes, leaving weapons and aircraft and military and
11:03 pm
biometrics data behind all for the taking of the taliban and he's now harmed them completely. in private they knew that his policy was rapidly collapsing, but instead of being honest with the american people and warning americans that were there as we had control and telling them that we are going to speed up the- withdrawal, immediately he goes on national tv and is now, everything is great. we have one of the best trained armies in thehe world. he promised that they were more than capable of defending the country. that's what he said in the month of july, the same month that he talked t about this. >> you have the afghan troops, you have 300,000, well-equipped, as well as any army in the
11:04 pm
world. as well as an air force come against something like 75,000 and it is not inevitable. a maximum of that was true, we now know that joe biden knew that was not true. joe biden had lied to you, the american people, right there. and we have the proof to show you and according to a leaked phone call conversation transcript from the month of july courtesy of reuters, we know that he also encouraged the afghan presidentnt also lie and change the perception whether it's true or not. project a different picture that all is great. he needed a political when, so perception was more important than the reality that we all knew that he knew and the rest of the world knew. so while engaging and encouraging to change perception, he abandoned the airbase in the middle of the night. and in doing so he left every american and every one of the afghan allies in kabul totally
11:05 pm
and completely defenseless. within one month the taliban marched to the outskirts of afghanistan and the capital city. not prepared to take control of such a large city. "the washington post" is now telling us that the taliban actually offered notot to invade and let joe biden keep kabul. warning to the report, he said no,or nothing. just let us have the airport. and don't worry, he was telling us the american people, he plan for everyll contingency. he promised the united states would not leave any american behind. he said that over and over again. >> the commitment holds to get everybody out that we can get out that should come out and that is the objective in what we are doing now, that is the path we are on.
11:06 pm
>> the troops may have to be there beyond august 31? >> cement they understand we will try to get it done before the 31st. >> but what if they don't? >> that will determine who is left. >> and what? >> and if they're american citizens amah we will get them all out. cement rearward disdainfully get them all out. joe biden seen lying to the american people. it was terrific, thousands of people rushing to get in. many trampled, many eaten and cast at theea checkpoints, there were scenes of babies being passed tots u.s. soldiers, moths and fathers even throwing themnd over walls of our wire and razor wire, taking hours and sometimes days for anybody to get to the airport gates, american citizens, those with american visas weree all left to fend for themselves. countries like france, uk,
11:07 pm
dutch, they were sending special forces behind enemy lines to extract their citizens, u.s. forces were under strict instructions not to leave the airport walls. as a result, many turned to private security agencies, ofnding tens of thousands dollars to secure safe passage to the airport. make no mistake, there was no safe passage. the state department memos to people in afghanistan so that we cannot guarantee your state of trance cd, but you might want to make w your way to the airport. how comforting. and a suicide bomber detonated a massive bomb at the gates of the airport, killing 13 u.s. servicemen and women and more than 150 others and yes, their blood is on the hands of joe biden because all of this could easily have been prevented. just four days later on the u.s. forces were gone and now we have note the dramatic presence on
11:08 pm
the ground, we have no embassy, limited intel, no security forces whatsoever. but there are still hundreds and maybe more than a thousand. they don't know the exact number of americans trapped behind enemy e lines and that includes hostages to the whims of the taliban. thousands more of our allies, yes, they remain hopelessly trapped. there is no way out, and now they are at the mercy of the terrorist in the taliban and also was. it is the single worst foreign-policy failure in my lifetime and one of the worst in american history. for this weor joe biden, congratulating himself as mission accomplished a job well done. he goes on j to say it is an extraordinary success, the best decision. >> the extraordinary success of
11:09 pm
this mission was due to the incredible skill, bravery and selfless courage of the united states military and our diplomats and intelligence professionals. some are now saying that we shouldd have started evacuations sooner. could this have been done in the more orderly manner? well, i respect leaders agree to matt joe biden has failed this country and we will never forget it. you'rere with reaction is our station chief dan hoffman. and a fox nation host as well. okay, starting with you, like all of you here to your credit, you have been been told that it is much higher than what they
11:10 pm
are saying. >> o, without a doubt. i mean, day by day, officials and those that were in the evacuation, when joe biden said there were 7000, they didn't even have an m&a people on the tarmac that day. we didn't have the ability to process 7000. so i mean, they said it on even a fraction of that. and there's a lot buried in there as well. they were not letting people in. the gates were closed. so when he said we are not leaving anyone behind him outside of the airport was all enemy lines. the taliban controlledmy at all, except where the afghan president and the special operations forces are still fighting rightht now. so it was so extraordinary is that you can have american women, one woman who is three
11:11 pm
months pregnant was at the gate begging for help for the third day, she had been there for the third day. i really want people to try to understand that there were american citizens, a mother with her three american children, green cardholders. all of these people were left behind in the joe biden administration state department has dropped every effort at every turn. what i heard from multiple sources is that they have been going to all the neighboring countries and blocking the rescue efforts. but they are furious that there has been concern americans who are saying enough is enough. they don't want to be misrepresented by the administration that doess not represent the heart of the american people. and this is a mark of shame that they refuse to carry.
11:12 pm
>> he also promised the allies that we would get them out as well. not necessarily that we would get them out of there. okay, joe biden claims he has leverage here. and so i argue, we don't have any leverage. they are called hostages. where i grew up, we call them hostages, we talk about financial aid, where i grew up, we call that ransom. that's the only option we seem to have. so what if it becomes isis beheading people. we have seen the videos and all of us have watched them. smack you know, it is inevitable right now. can you imagine h the horror of being a woman with american
11:13 pm
passport there in afghanistan. you heard the president of the united states promised that, you know, the taliban is not going to overtake afghanistan, they have 300,000 people. we have billions of dollars of equipment right there and also cash. not only was he wrong, but he lied. july 23 is going to be that pivotal moment when the democrats have got to come to the table and be honest about the principle. the president of the united states lies to the american people, he created a façade that was nott there. making life or death decisions about whether or not to depart and leave the country based upon what joe biden and kamala harris told them to do. and it was a death sentence. >> dan hoffman come you have sure been here in the intelligence community for a long time. one thing that i know for sure is that this was not in any way an intelligence failure. my two-part question. number one, do you agree with d what people have said when they
11:14 pm
pulled out seven weeks earlier, and they said in no uncertain terms, one day i assume the papers willhe be released, numbr one i want to ask you about what they knew when they knew it and we have anyhe k options here sht of the ransom the joe biden has said that he's willing to go for? >> you know, the cia has the same mission that they always have had, which is to preempt threats before they're on our shores. but the mission also includes taking care of our own. nothing says mission not accomplished like the 100 plus american citizen still sitting inside afghanistan. including the translators and then senator biden, to help to save his life. we don't have an embassy, the military capabilitye anymore an.
11:15 pm
i think that the cia is going to figure out a way to get there, but it's not going to be the same and we won't have military bases and we won't have the leverage to extract our people. and i don't think the taliban needs our money. they have china, russia, pakistan, they have had a relationship with iran that has provided them with material assistance. we are in a bad place. we have somema leverage. we had all of that. and that was our leverage. if we had evacuated civilians and at that time, we would be fine, but we reversed it and said -- and that is the key takeaways. president joe biden realized back then the afghan national army wasn't going to make it. and that was the time to hold and keep our military until we got our civilian out as a
