(NOQReport) – Biden Demonstrates ZERO Leadership as Staff Explores Ways to Spin the Worst Foreign Policy Disaster in Modern History
The last person our government wants handling hard questions about Afghanistan is supposed to be the leader of the free world.
Let’s not pretend Joe Biden was ushered off to Camp David in a coincidental move that totally wasn’t timed perfectly with the fall of Afghanistan. The White House saw the writing on the wall that the Taliban was advancing faster than they anticipated, so they hid their greatest liability, the so-called “President of the United States.”
They had the gall to post a picture of him in deep thoughts while in hiding, as if anyone actually believes he’s contemplating what to do next about this debacle. He’s contemplating ice cream right about now as his staff informs him they’re going to handle things for him. This type of incident is far too complex to rely on Joe Biden’s failing mental acuity.
This morning, the President and Vice President met with their national security team and senior officials to hear updates on the draw down of our civilian personnel in Afghanistan, evacuations of SIV applicants and other Afghan allies, and the ongoing security situation in Kabul. pic.twitter.com/U7IpK3Hyj8

When will Biden address the nation and the world about the humanitarian crisis developing in the Middle East? The White House told CNN he’ll come out of his hole “in the next few days.” According to The Gateway Pundit :
CNN: ‘Joe Biden is expected to address the nation in the next FEW DAYS about the crisis in Afghanistan, according to a senior administration official.’
Biden is currently hiding out at Camp David, the presidential retreat in western Maryland as Afghanistan falls to the Taliban. Taliban leaders, including terrorists who spent time at Gitmo have taken over the presidential palace in Kabul.
American citizens stuck in Afghanistan are being told to “shelter in place.” Earlier Sunday the White House comms team tweeted a photo of Joe Biden wearing a polo shirt and sitting alone in a room.
Joe Biden won’t be addressing the nation for days because of his severe cognitive decline. CNN was even stunned that Joe Biden is hiding.
“There are many who are asking, ‘where’s the president?’” a CNN anchor said.
“There are no indications that President Biden is going to address the nation,” another CNN reporter said.
Joe Biden is supposed to be the leader of the free world. He sits in the office with more power than any human on the planet. Well, technically he’s not sitting in the Oval Office. He’s on vacation. He’s hiding.
Meanwhile, the debacle the United States created with the initial invasion of Afghanistan and perpetuated through two decades of failed attempts to tame the nation is turning into the worst possible scenario for the people in the region. As you are reading this, women and girls who were safe a month ago are being raped and prepared to become sex slaves. Free men are deciding whether to accept their new normal or die.
Afghanistan today is far worse off than it was before America intervened. But let’s set aside our foreign policy mistakes of the past for now. Today’s situation cannot be blamed on George W. Bush, Barack Obama, or Donald Trump. There were many mistakes made, but none of the three made the cataclysmic mistakes the Biden regime has made in the last two months.
Lest we forget, their priority in Afghanistan just two months ago was LGBTQI stuff:

We could have pulled out properly. We should have. It was clear our presence there was not helping, but there was a better path to secure Afghanistan than to yank us out cold. One does not pull out a knife immediately after being stabbed for fear the damage upon exit could be worse than the original wound. That’s what’s happening in Afghanistan today and millions are suffering as a result.
But with these mistakes comes a reckoning at the White House, one that they’re desperately trying to avoid. They’re busy on the phone right now begging for positive coverage, offering alternative spins to the mess. They’re dangling carrots that mostly point the finger at Donald Trump, but even our Democrat-friendly, Trump-hating press is finding it hard to spin this in any way that doesn’t make the Biden regime look completely responsible.
Leftist shill Jake Tapper from CNN had some thoughts. According to Red State :
We rarely get the opportunity to credit CNN with committing journalism. But, CNN’s Jake Tapper did do a little journalism today in his interview with Secretary of State Antony Blinken. He asked Blinken the ‘ Saigon ‘ question.

Tapper asks, “President Biden is intent on avoiding a Saigon moment. That, of course, is a reference to the hasty and humiliating U.S. evacuation from Vietnam. But with this troop surge to air lift Americans out of Afghanistan, aren’t we already in the midst of a Saigon moment?”
Blinken’s response is delusional. “No, we’re not,” he insisted, despite the fact it’s already happened .
“This is not Saigon. We went to Afghanistan twenty years ago, with one mission. And that was to deal with the folks who attacked us on 9/11. And we’ve succeeded in that mission. The objective that we set – bringing those who attacked us to justice, making sure that they couldn’t attack us again from Afghanistan – we’ve succeeded in that mission.”
He said they guaranteed that al-Qaeda wouldn’t be able to attack us again from there – then went on to claim that continuing to stay there wasn’t in the country’s national interest.
What? How do you think you’ve ensured that they wouldn’t attack us from Afghanistan in the future? Indeed, as we noted earlier in reporting on Liz Cheney’s remarks, that’s the one thing that the Biden bunch has in fact not ensured – that Al Qaeda or other Islamic terrorists won’t be able to safely attack us from there – because now there will be a completely-controlled Islamic state in Afghanistan. If Blinken doesn’t understand that at this point, that’s a serious reality failure. He apparently missed the DHS advisory that speaks about a resurgent al-Qaeda as well.
Americans have been torn for months about whether this regime has what it takes to lead the nation. They have failed miserably at every turn when it comes to Pandemic Panic Theater. Not only did they fail to convince as many people as they’d hoped to inject themselves with experimental drugs, but they’ve also turned a large chunk of the nation against them by promoting draconian mandates.
Critical Race Theory. Open floodgates at our open borders. Disastrous economic moves that portend a coming collapse. All of these and many other issues had America divided between those who saw the truth and demanded the Biden regime change their ways and those who have tried for months to pretend the White House was doing things right when they knew they weren’t.
Most of that division can be tossed out the door today. Even Democrats are starting to doubt that Joe Biden knows what he’s doing. That’s not to say they wish Trump was still in office, but perhaps they’re wishing the DNC hadn’t ganged up on Bernie Sanders during primary season. Maybe they’re wishing Michael Bloomberg wasn’t so abysmal at debating. This isn’t the strong leadership they thought they were getting. This is Joe Biden.
Many Democrats learned today what most Republicans have known for a while: Joe Biden is not a leader. He’s a creepy guy with fading mental capacities who likes to sniff kids and thought last month that everything was going to be hunky-dory in Afghanistan. He’s a coward who goes into hiding more often than his degenerate son.
When the nation and the world needed a strong leader more than any time in recent history, we got Joe Biden instead. As usual, he has called a lid, this time on the nation of Afghanistan.
