Biden’s incompetence brought us chaos:
A total leadership failure
Instead of peace through strength, Joe Biden has chaos through incompetence. What is happening in Afghanistan is an absolute disaster. Worst of all, it could have been avoided—if not for the arrogance and ignorance of key members of the Biden administration.
In an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, President Joe Biden said, “The idea that somehow, there’s a way to have gotten out without chaos ensuing—-I don’t know how that happens.” Forgive me, but that is bulls—-.
First, if Mr. Biden knew there would be this kind of chaos, why did he schedule a vacation for this time? They would have had a statement and a speech ready to go. Instead, they had to scramble to throw things together because they did not know this would happen in Afghanistan.
On July 8, 2021, Mr. Biden stated, “The likelihood there’s going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely.” He also said, “the Afghan troops have 300,000 well-equipped—as well-equipped as any army in the world—and an Air Force, against something like 75,000 Taliban.”
Remember, the former Secretary of Defense to Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama wrote about Joe Biden in his book: “I think he has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.” These are not the words of a political operative but a respected leader in the intelligence, defense, and foreign policy fields. Secretary Robert Gates was a prophet. --->READ MORE HERE

What Afghanistan tells us about Team Biden’s incompetence:
Last year, during the presidential campaign, Joe Biden promised the American people his administration would be characterized by order, discipline, experience, and, above all, competence.
That has turned out to be spectacularly and obviously wrong.
As we watch the spiraling disaster that is the withdrawal – which, unlike its antecedent collapse in Saigon, is likely to get worse, not better in the coming weeks — fundamental questions arise about the competence of the Biden administration and what the answers might mean for the remainder of its agenda.
There is no way for anyone on the outside to know or be able to quantify with any precision whether and to what extent President Biden’s capabilities are reduced compared to his previous performance as a senator and vice president.
We can, however, say with some precision a few things about his schedule, his apparent lassitude, and that of his administration. For at least the last six months, the president’s daily schedule seems to have consisted of the Presidential Daily Briefing (usually in mid-morning rather than at the start of the day as is typical for presidents) followed by one internal meeting or perhaps a phone call or video chat with a small group of whoever. --->READ MORE HERE
