It’s been years since Haji and his wife have had a good night’s sleep. “All night, my wife wakes up,” says Haji. “She’s scared. If [she hears] somebody is coming, she calls me, ‘Haji, someone is coming!’” His wife says the first thing she does is hide the children. “Then I get up and go to the door to see what is going on. If there are Taliban, I tell them no one is at home,” she says. Haji’s English has become tentative since CNN first met him 10 years ago, during an embed with the US Marine Corps in Afghanistan. But his message cuts

Time to 'get out of Dodge', as they say. The border to Pakistan is essentially non-existent. Slip in and disappear. We don't need any more Muslims. If some feel we need to support these people, then assist them in settling in a Muslim country, not here.

Ironically (if that is the right word) The Taliban, in a couple of weeks has gained control of vastly more territory and is a thousand times better armed than they were when we began the 20 year war against them. How'd that 'Nation Building' Thing work out for you, Bush? Of course 0bama is ecstatic that another muslim jihadi organization has been armed with advanced weapons systems from America, and biden probably would be happy about it too, even if he were capable of grasping the situation and how bad it will be for his 'legacy'.

Leaving behind and ignoring the Afghani/English interpreters is the worst of Joe Biden's war crimes. I hope he burns in hell for this...stupid old man.

If those people are so terrified, and i don’t doubt they are, why don’t they bundle up their families and head for the border. Any border. But we don’t need anymore Muslims in this country, I don’t care if they can speak English or not.

Doubt anyone can escape. The Taliban control every road, avenue, path, animal trail, cave, and bolt hole in Afghanistan by now. The last way out is probably by air, and the Taliban are hard at work taking over every air strip. This was all inevitable, but its brutal to see it unfold. May God protect these poor Afghans whose only 'crime' was aiding the United States and the current 'government' of Afghanistan. Everyone understand why we were in Afghanistan for 20 years? It was to prevent the slaughter that is currently underway. The Afghan government could never protect the country, and we knew it.

This afternoon, Joe Biden tried to defend not only his decision to pull out of Afghanistan, but also the way his team carried it out. As to the former, Biden said, “American troops cannot and should not be fighting in a war and dying in a war that Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves.” But Afghans were willing to fight against the Taliban and to die doing so. That’s why the Taliban was never able to take over major population centers, not even when the U.S. force diminished to somewhere between 2,500-3,500. All they required of us was that we maintain something like that level of commitment.

One of my first reactions to the fall of Kabul over the weekend was concern about what this would communicate to our other allies and enemies. It’s hard to look at our abandonment of allies in Afghanistan and not conclude this is bad news for a place like Taiwan which is dependent on the US for its continued freedom. As you’re probably aware, China’s Xi Jinping has recently vowed to reunify Taiwan by any means necessary. “Solving the Taiwan question and realising the complete reunification of the motherland are the unswerving historical tasks of the Chinese Communist Party and the common aspiration of all Chinese people,” Xi said.

President Biden defended his decision to withdraw American forces from Afghanistan during an address to the nation delivered Monday, one day after the Taliban routed government forces and took over the capital city of Kabul. “I stand squarely behind my decision,” he said. “After 20 years, I’ve learned the hard way that there was never a good time to withdraw U.S. forces. That’s why we’re still there, we were clear-eyed about the risks, we planned for every contingency. But I always promised the American people I would be straight with you.” “The truth is, this did unfold more quickly than we had anticipated,” he added. While he had argued for months

President Biden is scheduled to return to the White House from the Camp David retreat Monday afternoon to comment on the deteriorating crisis in Afghanistan. Biden will deliver remarks at 3:45 p.m. from the East Room, he tweeted Monday. The president released a statement Saturday reiterating his commitment to end the decades-long conflict in Afghanistan despite the Taliban’s rapid resurgence and recent military conquests. “I was the fourth President to preside over an American troop presence in Afghanistan—two Republicans, two Democrats. I would not, and will not, pass this war onto a fifth,” he commented. Since that press notice, the Taliban has toppled all major provincial capitals and cities in the territory.

The shocking fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban is such a failure that even the liberal networks on Monday have abandoned Joe Biden's decision making (at least for now), hammering the President as “completely wrong” and executing a Vietnam-esque Saigon “debacle.” On NBC’s Today, Savannah Guthrie opened the show by blasting, “A catastrophe for its people and a debacle for the Biden administration. A triumphant Taliban storming the presidential palace in Kabul, seizing total control of the country.” Guthrie piled, on: “And the President at Camp David standing by his decision but under fire for a botched withdrawal.”

Ward said it is “clear” the Taliban is now back in “charge” of Afghanistan. “As soon as we leave our compound, it’s clear who is now in charge,” Ward stated in a report. “Taliban fighters have flooded the capital.

Sheer cowardice has always been a Biden hallmark, so it might at first glance seem to be why Joe Biden is now in hiding as Afghanistan's collapse, the biggest foreign policy failure since Vietnam, engulfs the news. But evidence is mounting that something different is going on: the Biden team is splintering into some kind of internal warfare and trying to conceal its disarray. Victory, after all, has a thousand fathers, as JFK used to say, and defeat is an orphan. The Bidenites aren't stupid enough to believe their own propaganda about the Afghan horror being a news-cycle nothingburger,

Embattled President Biden has been hammered by political opponents over the botched troop exit from Afghanistan that allowed the Taliban to seize control but something more concerning for the Democratic administration happened along the way: it lost the mainstream media. Mainstream, corporate media outlets have long earned their reputation of leaning left, often overlooking potential damning headlines aimed at Biden while criticizing conservatives at every turn. But some of the media industry’s most outspoken liberal pundits and progressive news organizations have taken Biden to task over scenes of chaos and desperation as the Islamist terrorist group takes power.

Extraordinary footage of Afghans clinging on to a United States Air Force plane in a desperate bid to flee the country have been described as the “defining images” of the decades-long military intervention by Western powers. Videos shared widely on social media on Monday showed hundreds of people running alongside a US military jet as it prepared to depart Kabul airport. One video showed several people climbing onto the plane as it progressed down the airport’s runway, some of whom appeared to be hanging off its moving front wheel. Another horrifying clip appeared to show at least two people falling from the sky after the plane has taken off.

President Joe Biden will remain hidden at his presidential retreat at Camp David through Monday, according to the White House, as the Taliban swiftly seized control of Afghanistan. The president’s daily guidance for Monday indicated Biden would remain at Camp David for at least one more day, with no public events scheduled. But a senior administration official indicated to reporters Sunday evening that Biden might address the country “in the next few days,” according to reports. It remains unclear whether Biden will speak from Camp David or return to the White House to deliver his speech, the reports noted. He was previously scheduled to remain at Camp David until Wednesday.

What will it take for Joe Biden to admit he is disastrously wrong about Afghanistan? The US leader struck a defiant pose last week. Sounding like a slightly desperate Olympics coach, he told Afghans it was their country. If they want it, they have to fight for it. In American politics-speak, this is called tough love. Without the love. Biden has more hands-on foreign policy experience than any president since George HW Bush. That doesn’t mean he knows what he’s doing. Opinion polls suggest his abrupt Afghan withdrawal has majority public support. That doesn’t mean Americans will remain indifferent as the carnage and misery mount.

The Pentagon chief is said to have made remarks during a call with other US government members Sunday, as the Afghan capital began to fall to the Taliban, its US embassy closed, and the number of American troops deployed there rose by 1,000 to 6,000. Austin and fellow intelligence officials blame the Afghan army for not opposing the Taliban in a more prominent way, FOX News reported.

As the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack looms, the National September 11 Memorial & Museum is crying poverty for the second year in a row. This time, it says it can’t afford to mount special exhibitions planned to mark the two-decade milestone. In 2020, the twin-beam “Tribute in Light” was canceled only to win a last-minute reprieve after soon-to-be-ex Gov. Cuomo pitched in state resources. But no such bailout appears in the offing this time. In fact, this year, the museum is shamefully restricting the reading-of-the-names ceremony exclusively to the families of 9/11 victims. No hero firefighters, cops, first responders or emergency workers,
