"Maintain the fight against hers and i've ghanistan and other countries. We just don't need to fight a to do it. We have called over the horizon capabilities. Which means we can strike terrorists and targets without american boots on the ground or very few of needed. We've shown that capacity just the last week. We struck isis k. Remotely days after they murdered. Thirteen of our servicemembers. Dozens innocent afghans into isis k. We are not done with you yet. Commander in chief. I firmly believe the best path to guard our safety and our security lies in a tough unforgiving targeted precise strategy that goes after tear where it is the day not where it was two decades ago. That's what's in our national interest and here's a critical thing to understand. The world is changing. Were engaged in a series competition with china. We're dealing with the challenges a mobile front with russia. We're confronted with cyber attacks and nuclear proliferation short. America's competitive to meet these new challenges in the competition for the twenty first century. We can do both fight terrorism and take on new threats that are here now and will continue to be here in the future and there's nothing china or russia was rather have would want more in this competition. The united states to be bogged down another decade in afghanistan as we turn the page on the foreign policy is guided our our nation last two decades. We've got to learn from our mistakes to me to that are paramount i. We must set missions with clear achievable goals not ones. We'll never reach and second mistake. Clearly focused on the fundamental national security interest of the united states of america. This decision about afghanistan is not just about afghanistan about ending an era of major military operations to remake other countries. We saw mission of and afghanistan getting the terrorists and stopping attacks morph into a counterinsurgency.

We got five thousand five hundred americans out well. You told us a week ago that we had anywhere between ten and fifteen thousand. America's you didn't know you can't tell us how many americans we do know from your generals. We left americans behind. We left them behind enemy lines. There are no troops on the ground to help them. They have been abandoned by you and your calling that a success with unparallel results. The right decision the wise decision. The pesticide vision. No joe. this is a disaster and unmitigated disaster. You wanna talk to. The people now caught behind enemy lines. You wanna talk to the families that were apoplectic and livid that you met at dover air force base again a joe because if this is success i don't know what fa what how do you define failure. How do you declare a war's over and ended. When fact americans are still trapped behind enemy lunch. We've got a lot of leverage you don't have any leverage against the taliban and the idea whether the sworn enemy of isis k. Isis is the sworn enemy of the taliban. No they're the ones that. Let them the hell out of jail. Joe and the idea when he started going into blaming trumpeted started going into you know for those that say that we could have done this and in june or we could have done this in in in in may or ju- why not we actually controlled kabul as the and this lie that he said they already controlled fifty percent of the country. No they did not. That's why we do our time lapse map every night on hannity to show people. This is just total. Bs what he saying. No nation has ever done this now. Americans don't leave. Fellow americans behind enemy lines joe no they. Don't you know they're they're always was going to be a crush of crowds. Well why did you give him air force base because we had it we owned it. We built it. We paid for it. Wanna talk about the trump deal with trump deal was not what you described because it was based one. If the taliban didn't abide by every dotted i and cross t and every comma every period he would obliterate them like he did baghdadi and associates. And the al qaeda leader in yemen. Like he did to seoul the money and like he did to the caliphate that you and obama allowed to grow and grow and grow and never lifted a finger. Trump's plan was to obliterate them if they didn't abide by the agreement so they guess what we didn't lose an american in eighteen months. Thank you donald. J trump. donald trump's plan was based on conditions on the ground donald trump's plan was in perpetuity that we would keep calm air force base the taliban agreement. You know i it was my choice to either. Keep the agreement that i inherited what you didn't keep donald trump's plan to secure our borders. You didn't keep his plan to keep us energy independent. You didn't keep his peace through strength plan on anything. And when are you going to answer for the equipment.

"To our two of the Clay Travis and Buck Sexton show. This is Buck and Clay and I are trying to break down. All of the latest updates here from the Pentagon, the Biden White House about the catastrophe in Kabul. The unbelievable mind blowing incompetence of the Via administration on full display for all to see. And a highly volatile, precarious situation. Not just in general terms for US foreign policy, but also for the thousands of Americans who are still on the ground in Afghanistan. Not clear they'll be able to get out are admitted our government. The White House asked the Taliban for permission. To extend the August 31st deadline. Have given up on this notion of using meaning America has given up on September 11th of some kind of a symbol of the end of the war. And the beginning of something new. Now the Taliban is the one that is going to be using that symbolism for their own purposes. Fact is the Wall Street Journal Op Ed, referring to the Taliban 9 11. And going into that in some detail. We can talk about that with clay here and just a few moments, But before we came back here to join you and bring everyone up to speed on what's going on. You had representative Mike Wallace was a former special forces guy. He was S F And a good guy. I know him and know that he's a straight a straight shooter, so to speak. And he's warning about the possibility already of this going so badly that we could have to send Soldiers back into Afghanistan, not for evacuation, Perhaps But even for direct combat roles This isn't about politics. This is about the fact that America now is less safe. Here's why we're in even a worse position than we were in 2000 and one Because now we have no bases in the region. The intelligence community has been very clear they have the will in the intent to hit us again. So as we head into the 20th anniversary, the 20th anniversary of 9 11. We now face the prospect of our soldiers having to go back in. Play. That's what I think. Is in the back of a lot of people's minds here. On the one hand, there's just the Look, this is one of those moments where this isn't about politics. This is about what's really important, which is getting every American out of Afghanistan safely. That's that's what you and I care about. That's what we're sitting here, hoping for. First and foremost. If that doesn't happen, and something goes bad, and we all know what that would mean here in the context of a place like Afghanistan run by the Taliban. There is the additional possibility of We We go in and we start. Trading blows with the Taliban again in direct combat operations. That's not going to be a short, quick thing. Clay were to be And I think to your point Buck the Biggest failure of the Biden administration is not necessarily the evacuation itself. Although we know how much of a failure that evacuation has already been. It's creating a situation where the Taliban has all of the control and we have none of it and we've hit on this for the past couple of weeks as this Maelstrom of disaster has continued to on spool itself. You've got situations where 19 year old kids with guns who are Taliban. Really have the fate of the Biden administration on their trigger finger, because if those kids and I say kids because you're 18 19 years old, suddenly lose their cool or even accidentally start firing on crowds. Then you got Benghazi on steroids for Joe Biden and what is so humiliating about this is we have no plan for departure. And we have said, and this is the biggest failure of all. Hey, we have to be out of there by August 31st So, But what happens if, as seems likely there are still many people left in Afghanistan? Well, that's essential play because we're all wondering, Are we going to be able to get everybody out? And when you start to look at what the answer to that question is based on the numbers of logistics, the realities on the ground. Some are already saying no. In fact, we need to be prepared for The the eventuality here, the imminent reality of Americans being yes. The word stranded would certainly apply. And then I mean, if the Taliban shuts off all access, the airport says Sorry. You missed the deadline. Now. Now we are talking about a mass hostage situation for it could be 50 could be 500. Who knows? Could be 5000. Americans stuck there, and we won't be able to have the kind of visibility to know what's even happening to them necessarily. And representative Mike McCaul. He's just straight up saying it. We're not able to get out and Biden Item may have blood on his hands. The president just announced a firm withdraw date of August 31st. I can tell you there's no way we can humanly get our all of our American citizens. An Afghan partners at a country by that time, I've called this consistently and mitigated disaster of epic proportions. It will be a stain on this presidency and particularly after decision made today and what we heard today he will have blood on his hands. People are going to die. And they're going to be left behind Clay. I hope representative McCaul Is wrong. I hope he's wrong. Do not think he will be. And that again goes to the essence of this failure of Joe Biden and and the fact that As we started the show. Talking about this. This is resonating in a big way with the American people without necessarily a tangible disaster occurring in terms of loss of life of Americans. 26% buck approval, according to the most recent USA Today poll of our withdrawal from Afghanistan..

"Me? The United States government can't figure out NGOs, contractors, military people, and who knows? Maybe there are visitors. I'm sure it's not that many, but you can't tell me and give a rough number Who's left behind. You can't reach out and do it. That doesn't sound right to me. Why are they doing that? Most of you already figured it out. This gives me uh No pleasure. Obviously in telling you this nothing but pain. They're preparing to blame these Americans when they leave them behind in August, 31st I hope and pray this isn't true. I desperately hope that the public outcry From this calling your congressman calling your senators what? Whatever it may be whatever you can do to get involved and have your voice heard right now stops them from doing this. But I've heard from multiple credible people well aware of what's going on with Intimate familiarity. Geopolitics. All of this nonsense going on right now that they are preparing to leave these people behind. And the blame game is going to be well. They didn't register. They didn't non register so Sorry by bad.

He spent eight years in prison before being released and becoming one of the key negotiators and Taliban peace talks over the past 24 hours more than 21,000 people were evacuated from Afghanistan as flight from the country continue to wrap up.

Sen. Cotton Says It's Shameful Biden Doesn't Take an Aggressive Stance in Kabul

"The Taliban is the enemy. The Taliban is animated. Remember the Taliban is a ragtag gang of a bunch of illiterate goat herds. Uh yes, they have support throughout the country in various segments of the population. But they could not for a moment stand up to the troops that we have inside the Kabul airport or more troops that we could flow into that airport. So it is shameful that Joe Biden and his secretary of state Saying that the Taliban and control of Kabul and we have to negotiate with the amount of reality. All we have to say is the United States is now in control of Kabul and anyone who interferes the evacuation of an American citizen will be killed on site. Uh huh. He's not going to do that. Is he, senator? Of course, he's not going to do that. I mean, this is an example of Joe Biden and his prickly stubbornness and pride fullness. He thinks that he's been right about Afghanistan for 12 years at a minimum, and everyone to include President Obama should have listened him. He's going to show everyone and know what they're saying, Mark. They're saying that no Americans are stranded and we're going to get out. Every American who wants to get out ridiculous. I'm afraid that that's their way to justify rolling up. Operations later this week, so you can get all the troops out by August 31st and then anyone who's stuck. Well, I guess they didn't want to get out because Joe Biden so incompetently executed his decision to withdraw our troops from Afghanistan.

There is no way to evacuate this. Many people without pain and loss heartbreaking images. You see on television but that may not actually be the most important thing that he said. Axios is politics editor. Glen johnson joins us now with the latest on afghanistan and withdrawal. Good morning glenn margaret so gwen us troops are supposed to be out on august thirty first. That's one week from tomorrow. But yesterday the president seemed to be saying that he was open to changing course. Why would he need to do that. And what does it say to you about the scale of this operation well throughout his comments he made clear that the scale was overwhelming He opened up his remarks by detailing almost in a salesman's like pitch a recap of his record over the past month or so exactly how many people had been moved out. It was clear that they were trying to address the specific argument that they had not handled this. Well he just wanted to lay out the scale of what they were trying to accomplish. What was interesting. Later was in response to reporters questions. He expanded upon his prepared remarks in actually dropped some news into each one of the things he said when he made well first of all. He acknowledged that while his plan is to get. Us troops out of kabul by august. Thirty first It make extend beyond that deadline Whether it's facilitating the removal of additional american citizens or american supporters or coalition Friendly's there has been discussions clearly about extending beyond august thirty first second of all to make that happen. He talked about how there had been an expansion in the perimeter. Remember this was. I the kabul airport and then from the civilian side over the military side. Now he's talking about a expansion around the airport itself in third of all he said all this had become possible because of conversations with the taliban especially about providing safe routes to the airport. So you know. He's been dancing with the devil. A little bit here as he's been trying to secure both route out for american citizens and people who have helped us as well as the safety of the. Us troops that have been put into action here so big theme of the president's remarks the american public was about restoring their confidence in him over the withdrawal for afghanistan. But you saw a bigger strategy there. Didn't you what was interesting yesterday. The president preceded his afghan update with an update about hurricane honory and he talked about all the administration had done again in very specific detail. About what the fema administrator was doing what they done to sit for cities and states about how dangerous storm could be and how they were poised pair crews. Everybody this is. Politics wanna won.

Joe Biden Addresses Afghanistan Evacuation

"Biden says he's focused on getting Americans out of Afghanistan by August. 31st The president updated the country today on the status of evacuations out of Kabul, less than a week after the Taliban overthrew the Afghan government. NPR's Asma Khalid reports, The administration has been facing mounting criticism for the chaotic scenes that continue to play out at the airport in the capital. The White House says the military has evacuated roughly 13,000 people since August 14th. It doesn't have an exact tally of how many Americans are still in Afghanistan. Despite reports of chaos on the ground near the airport, Biden offered this promise. Let me be clear any American who wants to come home, we will get you home. There are reports of Afghans getting stopped at Taliban checkpoints. The president says there's been no indication that Americans can't reach the airport, citing an agreement with the Taliban to allow Americans through. Some reporting on the ground calls that account into question.
