The Capitol Police officer who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt on Jan. 6 defended himself against criticism from former President Donald Trump and others who claim he should not have used lethal force on the 35-year-old Air Force veteran.In his first public interview since the Capitol riot, Lt. Michael Byrd said it was "disheartening" that Trump, in particular, said Babbitt was "murdered," adding he would take the same actions if he was in charge of protecting the former president.

I fail to understand how shooting and killing an unarmed woman "potentially saved" others from injury or death. Unless we see the video , I will never be convinced that she was a threat. I understand that things happen during high stress events. If she was shot by accident admit it and stop making yourself out to e some type of hero.

If an intruder were half inside my home's window and I dispatched him with a pistol, you can gamble your entire hind end I'd be up on murder charges as well as a wrongful death suit from his relatives.

This piece of trash is a lieutenant??? Give me a break!!! That liar should not be near a gun!!! There was police behind Ashli who knew she was unarmed, she was 5.2'!!! He left a loaded gun in a bathroom! I guess why he was promoted! I would not allow this POS to protect garbage put out for collection!!!!! She was not listening/obeying to his commands. So, that Floyd saint I recall did not obey commands. Hmm, the police did not shoot him. The flake died because of the drugs he had imbibed. Anyone tested the lieutenant what drugs he had imbibed??? Ooops, I forgot, when black cop gives command you better move yesterday or he will really, really use all of his 'power'!!!! Filthy dirt bag!

If a police officer shoots an unarmed person in any city in America the city attorney's do a detailed investigation to determine how this could have happened. Did the officer believe the person was armed? What type of weapon was perceived to be involved? If the answer is, "I didn't see any weapon that was a threat to me but I killed the person anyway" that is murder under color of authority. Did this officer fear for his life from Babbitt being pushed through the small window head first with her hands pinned beside her? Were her hands above her head and empty? This story is not over.

Lester Holt is a piece of crap - he never asked how a 5'2" 125 UNARMED woman was threatening? There were armed gauds behind him, a simple body in the way would have stopped her. Also when Byrd tried to portray himself as the victim, I wanted to throw up, he's receiving death treats well so is Babbitt's widower. Defund the Capitol Police.

So, out of the dozens of Capital police officers there that day, with all the chaos in and out of the building, with the rather passive attitude than many officer displayed towards protesters and those that entered the building, out of all of that this man believed that he needed to fire one - exactly one - bullet at a woman trying to come through a window? He is incompetent beyond belief. He left his gun unattended in a public location. He was substandard, is substandard, and should be brought up on manslaughter charges at minimum. I pray Ashly’s family pursues a civil suit.

Bottom line there was no reason for him to shoot her. If he were in any other police department across the country he certainly would have been held to account. He is lucky he did not shoot one of the other Capitol Police Officers who were behind the victim.

Watched him in replay on Tucker. What a squirrel. Eyes darting back and forth. And saying it didn’t make any difference whether Ashli was armed or not. Lester Holt tried to prime him to say that he had waited for some time before deciding to shoot, and he sort of agreed, but I saw the first video, taken by John Sullivan aka Jayden, before it had had an opportunity to be cut. Byrd was hiding in a room off to the immediate left of the glass-paned doors to the Speaker’s Lobby, which were locked and barricaded with a significant pile of heavy-looking furniture. Ashli went up on the back of a man she’d requested boost her so she could see. Byrd’s forearm and hand holding gun with his finger on trigger suddenly came out of that side door and he immediately shot. There was no hesitation. There was no warning. Both the video and the sound quality were very good on that video.

Ashli was a tiny woman. I’d be surprised if she was 5’2 and she didn’t look like more than 110#. She couldn’t see over all the taller men clustered in front of the glass paned doors. I watched her circulate through the crowd - I could see the American flag design on her backpack - and she finally got a tall man in front of the broken glass paned door to boost her on his back. One witness said she wanted to take a picture with her cell phone. She was almost immediately shot and pitched straight back, falling all the way to the floor.

The fathers of at least two of the Marines killed in the bomb attack on Kabul airport yesterday are blaming Biden for their deaths, saying he turned his back on the troops on the ground with his chaotic evacuation attempt that made them sitting ducks for ISIS-K. Thirteen US troops were killed along with 170 Afghans at the airport on Thursday when a single suicide bomber detonated his vest. Among them were Navy medic Max Soviak and Marines Hunter Lopez, Rylee McCollum, David Lee Espinoza, Kareem Nikoui and Jared Schmitz. Kareem's sickened father Steve told The Daily Beast on Friday:

During an address to the nation Thursday evening, President Biden vowed to “hunt down” the terrorists behind the bombings at the Kabul airport and said the U.S. military will continue to evacuate American citizens and allies despite the disruption. Biden spoke hours after two bombs were detonated outside the Hamid Karzai Airport in Kabul. One suicide bomber detonated an improvised explosive device at the airport’s central Abbey gate, killing at least twelve American troops and wounding 15 others. A second bomber detonated his device outside the Baron Hotel, near the airport’s perimeter. It remains unclear whether any Americans were killed in that blast.

One of the things that disgusted conservatives following news of the bloody terrorist attack in Kabul that killed twelve Marines and one Navy corpsman was the fact that Nancy Pelosi, during a public appearance in San Francisco, not only didn’t mention, she was also in an exceptionally jovial, joking mood. My bet is that this wasn’t mere callousness on her part. (snip) I believe that the reason Pelosi is behaving in this way is to keep her base from realizing that something bad happened. It’s a form of gaslighting that involves her shaping their reality through lies, not to drive them crazy, but to keep them ignorant.

The deep grief on President Biden’s face as his eyes swelled with tears was painful to watch. But his personal suffering cannot exonerate him from the responsibility for what happened in Kabul.

Biden says the buck stops with him, but he doesn’t really mean it.When the enemy strikes with deadly results, it’s somebody else’s fault. That’s not leadership and it certainly isn’t presidential.

One of the most effective ways for the MSM to shut down an inquiry into misconduct is to say it is all a conspiracy theory. Besides avoiding an unwanted discussion, the charge also invites scrutiny of the "theorist" instead of the issue itself. Notice how quickly some even start off saying something like "I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but..." Expecting their reaction, we have become almost trained to do this. But are there really no big conspiracies? It has been claimed that the phrase "conspiracy theory" was invented by the government to discourage the questioning of official explanations for important events, especially the JFK assassination.

President Biden is being attacked from all sides after the deaths of at least 13 American service members Thursday in an ISIS-K terrorist at the Kabul airport, with calls for his impeachment and resignation from some. The outrage over the American deaths Thursday was compounded by news that the U.S. gave the Taliban the names of Americans and Afghan allies it wanted to evacuate. The political crisis for Biden follows a foreign policy crisis in Afghanistan after the Taliban swept into power as American troops withdrew from the country on Biden's orders. And even Democrats are criticizing the president's actions. Prior to yesterday's bombings

In a move no one can grasp, U.S. officials in Kabul gave the Taliban a list of names of American citizens, green card holders, and Afghan allies, believing the Taliban would allow them to enter the militant-controlled outer perimeter of the city’s airport. Lawmakers and military officials are outraged. The insane move was designed to expedite the evacuation of tens of thousands of people from Kabul by the August 31 deadline. It also came as the Biden administration began relying on the Taliban for security outside the airport. ISIS-K has since set up forces around the soon-to-be-renamed Hamid Karzai International Airport.
