Breaking news today on the secular resurrection license in human form and now this is we know jurors may seek to exploit the situation and target views and Afghans are American troops maintaining constant vigilance to mom maintain the cost to monitor and disrupt threats of from any source, including the likely source. Isis Isis K, the Afghan affiliate referred to as Isis K but were under no illusions about the threat we want to hear from you, Sharon poster, call 1-800-684-3110.
This Isis the threat is real is a Q is persistent and it is something that we are focused on with every tool in our arsenal and now your secular secular outlets of the title of the show.
Today, the resurrection bodies Isis no joke there has been a resurrection a return of the Islamic state.
It Afghanistan utilizing the withdrawal of US troops to begin amassing their own troops their own fighters. Other taken some actions before in original provinces, even some attacks in Kabul. What we are saying is a combination of two different terror groups who are now utilizing Afghanistan. What is the County network that is a mixture of Qaeda Al Qaeda and the Taliban. I exploited as the Ford terror force of the Taliban. Like how Iran has the output force which is therefore terror force. This is the Taliban and a version of that they work with Al Qaeda to the plan attacks overseas targeting non-Afghans targeting Americans. We also see a rise by the Taliban who have said, by the way, if you don't get this done by August 31, not extending any kind a safe haven.
However, that's actually been in operations to receive reports of violence and death out of the Kabul airport that I can extend past August 31. On top of that, we went from 2500 troops that were keeping Afghanistan relatively called keeping the Taliban out of power, keeping the Afghan government in power without the 6800 troops justice just to hear more in airport. We are on the brink.
Unfortunately, I think of one incident leading to a another war in Afghanistan. That's the problem then you got Khalil hi Connie, the high Connie network which is a leading Taliban figure he was out of Afghanistan.
Here's the problem. He's the one who trained with and that his network is kind of a hybrid of the Taliban and Al Qaeda. He trained Osama bin Laden, that's who he trained and radicalized him so the people that are now coming back into the country with influence not just come back in the country, but the coming back in the country with influence are the very ones that cause the terror attacks in the United States.
So when we say the resurrection of Isis. We wrote a book when Isis first became prevalent: rise of Isis was number 1.New York Times bestseller. Now you got it Afghanistan you have Isis you have the Taliban and then you have the splinter group from them. You're calling Isis K because the province that he controls his book that part of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Now, 2500.
I was all in favor of getting troops, not merely process limiting what this is not orderly or a process. No, I think listed. We have not got into it yet but that that way that the administration talked about this in the lead up to the withdrawal you would've imagined that Isis was both major threat there at all. The major threat from Al Qaeda, either that that yes, there were to be some bumps along the road with the Taliban.
But that those outside players who are now the reason why the airport in Kabul is more dangerous is because of the resurrection.
Think about this Donald Trump and his administration eradicated Isis. They are back now operating in Afghanistan which will become a safe haven for them to operate. If US troops to withdraw, which is exactly what happened and how 9/11 was played by Al Qaeda's Afghanistan became a safe haven and they were able to make their plans travel freely and ultimately release police that a deadly attack on the United States.
We don't want to see history repeat itself be better for you are prepared on this.
We are doing the work we could do all this is the ACLJ recruit LB Geordie is the broadcast day what you support the work.

Because Isis was eliminated their top leadership was eliminated on this is an Isis that operates in Afghanistan, but shares the same audit around the globe. I suggested they learn after Callaway had lost a caliphate. They work the world threat from Isis was on) was relegated to get other groups in northern Africa and there were groups and like it Afghanistan trying to claim this the banner of Isis but was it really Isis was that I was a question that we got answers that. But before we got the answers of the administration yes Isis is back three days ago present bride is addressed to the Dacian, said this about the threat of terror groups inside Afghanistan. Let's play love is put this thing in perspective here. What interest do we have in Afghanistan. At this point with Al Qaeda God. We went to Afghanistan for the express purpose of getting rid of Al Qaeda in Afghanistan as well as as well as getting Osama bin Laden and we did. But now these terror groups are back and they're saying let's play the bite work that's both person acknowledges that Isis threat is acute and present, and this is what what is the President is waving with reaping him who is telling him to give a speech to the nation to the entire country and say that Isis is gone there not a threat, and then three days later have to deal with an acute and present is exactly what the words I listen to the how real is this Isis threat. The threat is real is acute is persistent and it is something that we are focused on with every tool in our arsenal Commanders up now play the bite bite again. I want people to understand that this is what's going on just the beginning of love is put this thing in perspective here. What interest do we have in Afghanistan. At this point with Al Qaeda God. Okay, so there is within 72 hours you get to completely prosecute my question within toxic hearings is bipartisan concern or what is the temperature in Washington. All of this right now is Jake Sullivan had to be prepared to didn't just get up there and say acute and present without getting that approved from the White House well and Jenny wouldn't set unless the evidence was so abundant that it was unavoidable because that is not an admission that he wanted to make here.
Here's the concern that I hope is apparent on Capitol Hill today that should have been readily known to them before this damning Isis is been looking for a safe haven from which to operate for the last how many decades now.
Of course this was good to be an obvious place for them to reemerge. If we have to withdraw that. Is this disorderly J this week on the hill. Look, there is are as many as five committees who have said they are going to have hearings on this.
We don't have a formal notice for one yet. The house is just returning today so I think there's a high likelihood you'll see a notice today.
I think probably Wednesday is a day that were looking at about look J, I mean having hearings is one thing, asking real questions of this administration that will improve the situation on the ground as we speak. It's another.
I think that remains to be seen whether or not that will happen on the same day Pres. Biden said Al Qaeda was God and now they've admitted your Isis is back to the same day just like an hour later I was even that much later. Adm. Kirby from the State Department spokesperson said this about Al Qaeda is a real confidence builder.
By the way, we know that Al Qaeda Al Qaeda is a presence as well as Isis and Afghanistan. We talked about that, here's my question for everybody out there listing especially if you served in half if it if in Afghanistan or you are just thinking about this if 2500 American troops working alongside the Afghan national military were able to make these threats minimal from Isis and Al Qaeda to the point where they weren't really able to operate.
Why was the Biden plan to just cut and run like this. If these were working, you could in the conflict keep enough troops in place like we have a Germany like we have in Korea but not like what we did in Vietnam, but enough troops in place so that these groups who ultimates their ultimate goal is to get attacks restarted.
Is this working to be waking up to again new attacks in America by radical Islam. Think about how long it's been since you've used that kind of terminology where that was a consistent threat the United States was radical Islam is to be radicalized by groups like Isis I groups like Al Qaeda.
Is that a new threat now because I want you to understand what the Taliban had told Joe Biden is not what they are telling you there tell you if we need to extend past August 31, we can know what the Taliban had said Talbots. If you go past August 31 US and and and and UK what the answer from the Taliban is no to. If you stay there will be consequences. Again, this this is on the cusp of a second US Afghan war, and as you said, we seen an increase of troops from 2800 20,000 now you have an August 31 deadline. Okay. And by the way, on top that will talk about this next segment critical response unit that the Trump administration had with our military in Afghanistan around Afghanistan gone in June, which is why were filing a FOIA lawsuit on that.
Listen to the reporter question which is August 31 listen to the response from Joe Biden my hair on the discussion was military, extending as we will not have to extend the discussions. I suspect how far we are we don't even know how many Americans are in right now in a state the number is so broad it's 10 to 40,000 that is that I be that that's not a number that the military could figure out okay with that 5000 Americans outsource they won't tell us was numbers by the way they say always loved 30,000 people out there I tell you a breakdown of who the people are because let's say you know you got to 25,000 Americans that would be sizable if you thought it was between 10 and 40,000 but if you not giving us that number. What I'm guessing is it's very very bendable because they don't know. Now they said they were moved dedicated to the checkpoint unit. The checkpoints are the reports from the ground on this is important reporters on the ground are saying that the passports are being ripped up by the Taliban at the checkpoints along the way. When you get this a little bit later to Christians are being targeted specifically by the Taliban going door to door searching for Christians expected. Ask him inspecting their iPhones to see if there are any kind of Bible apps or Christian content on the this report in the Christian post. So Christians are being specifically target everybody's been targeted not tell Bender be a target but I this is where is the critical response unit disbanded in June why you not disbanded. What were you thinking or are they not when these generals get up it would do respect does it give you confidence when Adm. Kirby gets up there and speak to Jenna confidence builder for you because it sure not for me, the woke generals are our doctors damaging the US military internally here, here, the United States recruitment things like that but there that you see the President when they're focusing on whether not they should be teaching abilities, wondering whether this be teaching critical race theory instead of how they're figuring out Afghanistan there's a problem they should all this is such a big failure.
You would think they'd all be reside fired, but the problem is that for the Biden team. I don't know if they're competent enough to pick next replacements. Certainly Joe Biden has shown the levels of incompetence of his leadership.
Kemal Harris has left the country. She's running away like about this yet that she's running away and so you have spokespeople giving us the updates on what people should be taking action on the ground in Afghanistan. Let me take some folks if you if your woman Afghanistan.
Your life is significantly change if it's not overdressed their reports of father's heavy weapons there for their daughters say either use it to defend yourself or to take your life and how serious it's God because of being captured by these these monsters you. That is, that is, the Taliban, which is very similar because we got to know Isis very well that there are different reaches the world a different cylinders of these are what the way they operate very similar, very similar.
According to counter term counterterrorism analysts and a variety of different organizations. This the kind of the common consensus is that Isis is been waiting for an opportunity like this works.
Fighters can now exploit one unfortunately is clearly chaos, so they let let me ask you this.
We know congresses is concerned about this, which is one thing but let's talk about what we're doing with a million a minute and 20 seconds and we got a FOIA going out probably today on this is freshly the critical response team well one of the things we've learned J it's good to Congress gets involved, but it often takes groups like us, pushing them to look in the right directions and demand actions in the right direction. This FOIA J wheat we want to know why they didn't evacuate. First, we want to know why the resources and weapons on the ground were not either secured or destroyed in advance of this and we also want to know why dissent cables inside the State Department were either ignored or not elevated as high as they needed to go J. Look, I mean it. It's a good thing that Congress is looking at it, but we have learned time and time again we actually have to focus then in on the questions that need to be asked and answered if there can be effective to really take your calls or house record out our senior advisor for foreign-policy national security is joining us in the next segment of the broadcast. You get your coveted Facebook YouTube periscope.
Also, you call the broadcast was the Samaritans. Yeah, we'd love to hear if you want a hug 684 31 two that's 1-800-684-3110. As always, I would be revived you during the month of August are matching challenge double the impact of your donation to the ACL dates critical importance.
How we continue to expand as organization ACLJ only one.

And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice defend the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn. It's called mission will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ Jesus were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the worship ministry and what Obama care means to the pro-life discover the many ways your membership in the ACLJ is powering the right question.

Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 $50 gift becomes 100.
This is a critical time for the ACLJ.
The work we simply would not occur without your generous report and are matching challenge today make a difference in the protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you.
You forgive today online ACLJ secular joy of our senior advisor, financial security for policy record now Rick, I would ask is right off the bat because we saw this response from the Taliban saying it was a direct response to the present. Biden also the UK say that if you try to go past August 31 were to say no to the root to get people out of Afghanistan that is that they called a redlined interesting enough of the Taliban using that language. What concerns me now at 6800 US troops there, up from 2500 troops and the Taliban and making that kind of play that will start attacking basically after August 31.
What makes me conservatives that are we looking at part two of the Afghan war instead of the drawdown.
That's a great question look of this year we had a very you know in Afghanistan we had we had freedom and the Afghans were looking forward to creating more freedom and the embassy US Embassy was working well. All of that on January 20 this year and now look at the chaos that we have. We went from Donald Trump telling the Taliban exactly what to do in the Taliban and in fear that they would be bombarded from the air and now fast forward to today. That's how man is telling us what to do there telling us to get out by a date certain. The whole script has been completely flat. This is a political crisis I want to be very clear.
I keep saying this, this is not an intelligence failure for those listening, you should understand that your government US government through intelligence and State Department foreign service officers and men and women in uniform at the Pentagon. They all did their job.
They presented warnings to the political class. It was the politicians that mess this up at the end we need to be very clear with our US military. They protected the states they went to Afghanistan they got rid of the immediate threat they did their job. They should be very proud of them a debt of gratitude a politician Washington are the ones who must Rick be. The reports are Amy Jake Solomon said this, he talks about the ISIS threat is being acute and persistent. This is come screen days after Joe Biden saying that ISIS is is not a factor in Afghanistan so totally get that wrong. Then another troubling report and not just with it because it's Christians mother as I note that the persecution of with the Taliban is doing to women in other groups is just outrageous were now finding reports coming out of Afghanistan it the Christian there are a lot of Christians in Afghanistan, but that operate pretty much underground.
As you can imagine, we know Fort Worth man, but now the Taliban is literally they got a list because there's the house churches almost like China and they're going door-to-door there asking for their phones, seeing if there's any kind of Christian content or Bible apps on their phones and then they destroyed these people kill them and this is what were dealing with, and Joe Biden then decides in June to remove and dismantle the critical response unit that when you were in office was right there in the region to prevent exactly that. What are they thinking who is advising the administration's like you said is not intelligence here it's it's what this is a policy move. Let's talk about with advising stations rights is considered to be the policy advisor, that's funny. She's actually running the foreign policy but you know are two deputies were when she was the national security advisor. One deputy wise Anthony Blanca Secretary of State now right to set deputy Haynes, who she's the director of national intelligence now owes those were Susan Rice's two deputies are national security advisor right now Jake Solomon is the individual who sent Hillary Clinton classified emails on her laptop. This is a group of people that are highly highly partisan.
They gave us Libyan disaster in Benghazi. They sat on their hands during Syria when it unfolded into a genocide and Isis took over. Now that delivering us Afghanistan blood Susan Rice's the one who was Bill Clinton's advisor when the room genocide unfolded. This is a history of failing in Washington. That's what happened. Failing up is the right word because you people get promoted from the State Department to the White House minutes of it with the number two now that the lead person.
The thing that I'm soaking you mentioned Benghazi I think were seeing Benghazi replayed on a much broader scale because I mean this this were the United States of America and the Taliban and Al Qaeda are not hearing us. They are controlling the situation which is, I wrote a book called the rise of vice is the end of that was.
We finally defeated them.
The caliphate was destroyed when you were in office now. Not only is it reconstituting it's it's more dangerous I want to make two points are very important for our audience, one that Donald Trump was in office. He wanted our troops home a long time ago he adjusted the deadline constantly. Not because he wanted to because of facts on the ground real-time information that forced him to adjust. You can have a goal of bringing our troops home that you have to pay attention to the information that's coming on the ground.
The second point is very important is that yes, the Trump administration spoke with the Taliban consistently.
That's not the problem. Speaking to the Taliban is not the problem. The problem is what does the Taliban here they heard when Donald Trump was in office if they made a move on cities they would be bombed and that they would face severe military pushback under the Biden administration. The Taliban is not hearing that there were rushing to take over Afghanistan. You know Rick you actually I tweeted out today and is very simple treatment that that the Pentagon and the State Department have no idea how many Americans are trapped in Afghanistan get these numbers about evacuations about having brother flights. We have got no breakdown yet of how many Americans have actually been able to get out of Afghanistan.
How serious is that it's very serious Secretary of State. I think it's a disaster this past weekend he was talking about top two in his words, Pres. Karzai, Pres. Karzai is not the President and what's scary is I'm wondering was he speaking to the former President pretending like maybe he was still the President did he not know or did he mix up the names. Either way, we have a press Corps in Washington that is just interested in the facts that are racing to cover up already, and move on and talk about ask COBIT issues. Look, this is this is relevant to every single person listening if Afghanistan becomes the same payment and all for the Taliban and and for Isis and Al Qaeda, which is exactly what happened.
They will be able to plan future attacks and that's what we wanted to guard against. That's why we wanted you to utilize technology. The Trump administration wanted to use that utilize technology maybe bonding from the air or other forms but we were watching them and there were conditions on the Taliban always going Rick is always, we appreciate your comments. Your insight into this always something unique in hopes you, happy father, Steve microgrid now because your sports ACLJade August semantic chance month we did know what occurred.
Afghanistan, the having Rick having my cocktail on the team because of your support for ACLJ financially. Why would you do it from starting online ACLJade.org that's ACLJ.org. Be right back at the American cerebral injustice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate, it will be managed $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 you can make a difference in the protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms are most important to you and your family. Give a gift today online ACLJ.keeping you informed anything now is Jordan secular with the Department of Defense has no policy solutions for you that's actually direct. Quoting from the department of defense spokesperson Adm. John Kirby, I think most of you have got to hear it from the back. I'll tell you yeah you know, first of all, he was the one who said right after bytes of there was no Al Qaeda.
He said yes. There was weed same day with an hours start see that kind of conflict the messaging you realized you have a dysfunction covered that's not good when you got in active conflict going on around the world included.
It is focusing on Afghanistan. So we now know one that the that the Taliban has said you cannot go pass August 31, there will be consequences that is that me that's with the Taliban says will start firing on those aircraft if they did wait that long. Is that what you that's a major threat in our present say well maybe we will have to go pass August 31, we have to go pass August 31 and the the new weapons at the Taliban have have now collected utilize to get these transport flights and then no longer giving what quote unquote safe passage through their checkpoints which are not really doing already. What's increase. Others say this all gets worse at what is it turned into a full on war zone. That's almost 7000 US troops there are still 5000 NATO troops there, that's a war we are the brink of a potential war restarting a war that was done in Afghanistan restarting because the failed policies of the Biden administration and what do you expect with their own spokesperson at the Department of finance answers questions like this about all the weapons be taken by the Taliban, listed by 55 we have a vested interest obviously and and and not wanting that to happen, but I don't have any policy solutions for you today about how we would or could address that going forward policy solutions already put in place by the Trump administration to destroy any of the weaponry we could bring back turn it returning destroyed. We make it inoperable and unusable at present truck going so far to say they were going to do that to the ports yes it Afghanistan. So even the infrastructure that we had built.
We could move it with us to destroy it. So don't tell their kids that there's no solutions you missed the solutions because you you withdrew the troops who could've carried that out and you just left the Taliban and Isis and Al Qaeda with sophisticated weaponry so that they can first terrorize Afghans and any American still in Afghanistan and potentially start another conflict with our US troops.
The brave bitter women who serve our country because there is an absence at the Department of Defense, that's for sure.
Lloyd Austin give me a break. He loves doing up congressional hearings on the diversity of the military and critical race theory. The military vaccinations of the military. What he doesn't like doing press conferences on his Afghanistan and the and the additional what 4300 troops. He just said to be in harm's way against Al Qaeda Isis in the Taliban we need to see another beheading video of an American to realize the threat that these guys pose. So here's what you have Reuters headline late last week says planes, guns, night vision goggles. The Taliban hands new US-made warchest official said that while there are no definitive number for Dave dependent numbers about nothing.
The current intelligence assessment was that the Taliban are believed to control ready for this more than 2000 armored vehicles, including US Humvees up to 40 aircraft including 60 Black Hawk helicopters scout attack helicopters and scan Eagle military drones.
Why in the world when we were deplaning this pullout was this stuff not removed network fan I know will your 52nd tier. Congress needs to get answers.
We are filing a lawsuit will because the planet Jordan was talking about was well underway and the drawdown was all the way down to 2500 troops and guess what, just like Rick said, J there was calm Taliban was at bay. There was still an environment where you can make these extractions and yet when you accelerated and you abandon the plan. This kind of chaos happens. And quite frankly Jake you hear the Taliban say in this act, consequences, and provoke a reaction that's their way of Seymour J. Divorce also are utilizing the rhetoric of the Biden team against so first we told you the Taliban said that August 31.
The red line that's taken out talking about Syria chemical weapons. There trying to now say that the US is the root cause is the word they use the turbo use root cause liver that was the root cause of the immigration crisis that has been solved using the language against the American Center for Law and justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those for their faith. Uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy and fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress. ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 $50 gift becomes 100.

You forgive today online ACLJ only one.
A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice.
Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold edition will show you how you are personally support the publication includes all major ACLJ only cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist the ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the abortion industry and what Obama care means to the pro-life in many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right question free copy of mission life today online ACLJ/is proficient. The last segment was the idea that we be controlled by our enemies and adversaries around the world. So you have the Taliban using the famous redline which was a direct shot at that Biden Obama T because the is the redlined language about the chemical weapons in Syria.
They did nothing to protect the Syrian civilians with an aside lease chemical weapons on their people lives ignored walked away so they're using that saying August 31. That's all redline ads. By the way, I refilled their redlines are more serious than the Obama Biden team's redlines have ever been on top of that you got the Chinese called the US the quote root cause word you hear that a billion times. Root cause of the Afghanistan crisis using the same language that the Biden team used to describe how to figure out the border crisis which we ought it was a joke. They were going to other countries incentive for gap. What was happier aborted because it would put in the wall. They don't want to use the security that would make the arrest.
They don't want to do the removals of those who have been here illegally, even during a pandemic where they have even more ability to take action, but also the Taliban continues to troll Americans by again utilizing what is a famous image out of Iwo Jima utilizing new to their new uniforms in the new technology that have that's why they kind of look like US troops there that is not that is the Taliban special forces they are seeing on our team they have special forces to you can see how those special forces blade right into any situation and you would think they were coming from a Western military are no longer hiding in caves know what was going on their part.
Their political leaders still dress like that. There militates their top level military looks like ours not say this trade regardless of the scary part of their Bockius. Yes, the mocking is Celeste Smith is doing is Col. Smith is on the road today but is called in Celeste we just reported 2000 armored vehicles Humvees 40 aircraft including H UH 60 Black Hawk Scott attack helicopters scan Eagle military drones, countless ammunition left in the hands of the Taliban.
Your military guy.
What in the world are they thinking here just keeps multiplying over and over and out what's going on with Afghanistan and the Biden note billions and billions of dollars of military equipment admission supply normally in military operations as you're getting the civilians out ahead of time which what should well you're also getting your military equipment out and if military equipment is about to fall into the hands of the enemy 44 400 years for more than 100 years. What what the military is always God, you destroy the equipment you never let every armament and equipment like that fall into the hands of enemies. We did nothing. We didn't use our airpower to even hold the Taliban. The Taliban and check to keep them from taking couple and we have that capability, but we also gave up Bagram airfield surrendered without a fight there, which is where most of our military equipment and went to cobalt Airport, which is a single runway airport that now because the bonding bundle. He just kept going on a note that airport workers are is literally surrounded by the enemy surround about element Jake this is this is made our NATO allies still uninformed and somewhat great cast iron yeah and the American people are long but tell you who's happy to nature our enemies are watching this with delight and it also emboldens them think about Taiwan a lot the last week in days because what this is doing is giving China tacit permission that they can perhaps take Taiwan militarily because what we're seeing here is an administration that is not willing to take decisive action difference between heavy course and having the willingness to use the court on behalf of your nation and its people. And at this point they're not doing that by ministration decided to do in June last is to remove the critical response unit militarily explained to everybody, but that is the we we keep.
It operates through the State Department. Actually, in coordination with the date that we keep a team. All the work because it can happen anytime, anyplace with the world.
They are quick reaction force is this kind of force.
Although it was a little more loosely organized and godly disaster. But it was back trying to force that back then they Obama administration refused to let that force deployed to Benghazi to rescue the people and there, but we do have that that that team always on duty always on alert and what the President Biden J. He disbanded that team the critical response is the reason the guys some it's all politics.
They know it's not about actual what is going to be best for the Americans there to keep these in place. It's all of this was in response to something we all gold which that was another situation where American lives were lost and they did respond with that critical response to that it allow them to move forward so they don't like that idea. So they got rid of it because it reminded them of another bad decision they made up the I put out an image. Do we have the elections have consequences individual over those too late because literally if that is image I put out over the weekend. By the work you should see it just on social media as a present.
It's a picture present Biden picture of a Taliban fighter and she says elections have consequences were bringing back unfortunately as we get close to the 20th anniversary of 9/11 there back back because of our policies, not because of how great they are because of how bad our policies, but in a matter of months months is all it took 20 year battle to get them under control.
It worked with 2500 troops left in stably clear legal weeks of policies put in place by this new administration which is new anymore and never really was due to his essay people from past like Rick was going through. All I can do this because I experienced what Obama would do and Biden would do in the past which is nothing. Now here's my question to pan the fact is, there is bipartisan condemnation of this going on right now. Even the left media has turned on Biden on this. They have J.
I don't know how long it will last, but to me this is just proves the point that Jordan was making all the more. If you are lying just a few weeks ago there was not only consensus that there should be drawn down in Afghanistan there is really consensus J which is almost impossible to find in Washington DC.
It was be keep being carried out effectively because it was it was happening without additional harm to US troops without additional intelligence of terrorist gathering that has all flipped on its head pajama quickly make one point in its will. It's one that Rick and Jordan were alluding to Jake Sullivan, Anthony Blanck and Susan Rice, Avril Haynes, this is what we were talking about when we said the foreign policy of the past will repeat itself date we we should have known in advance that if you put the same people in the same places you're getting get the same results, Congress has to come together in a bipartisan weight this week J and demand that something changed and a lot of damage has already been done. But we're in the middle of this still and we can still get evacuations out if they will write course. But J without personnel change. I don't have a lot of confidence that will happen this when a person's rights agreement will what are art those who watch the brush Associates take a look.
This is this is reality of the elections having consequences not just domestic policy especially comes to a present for policy. If so much more leeway to act without Congress be able to step in and so this is I direct Todd's which we are now it is 2021 and were to be talking about ice that is that that can't really talk about Al Qaeda again in the Connie network in Pakistan again. In all these places are going to rise.
The top of places that were relatively calm where you get these people may have harbored the feelings but they did have the ability to carry out these attacks and with 2500 troops. I think you could remain there have ABC keep the embassy protected other consulates and this would happen. Instead, we are the Taliban armed Al Qaeda just like fast and furious, but this time is that of drug cartels.
The Obama Biden team is a proposal.
Bob also deserves a lot of blame for this. He drew the redlines and know what that never mattered. He went in there it out the root cause of immigration crisis understand they have armed the Taliban armed Al Qaeda. They have armed ISIS with more in the newest and best advanced military equipment possible. There's no excuse for that. You could've literally just blown it all up.
To get the plates just destroy. I think the American taxpayer with a lot happier with that policy solution. John Kirby then no solutions which is what he saying right now or or letting our taxpayer paid for weapons. Just go to the Taliban. It's disgusting. As American but the world we play that booster, the department of MP who serve Afghanistan who talked about the diminishing role of the United States in the world. We have told you that there is a difference between America first. What this group is all about. They don't want American be first. I question whether they want America even be a superpower anymore. They are so much I be there hold their whole thing is making money. The Bidens bought and paid for by the Chinese.
We know that Hunter Biden 75 Thousand dollars piece of artwork, now Chinese so you get a hold them accountable. No pandemic that they caused no not going to believe that a key for this out. Like Rick said there to try to move to the Cove or the tribe of the other stories so you don't see the atrocities that happened Afghanistan. Unfortunately, Al Qaeda in the Taliban and ISIS are pretty good at making sure the atrocities are see this is exactly right. And this is a catastrophe right now that's unfolding and there's been a beep.
There are people being killed hurt and one of foreign policy failure. Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
This is what you get back with more clear because we serve an updated stand calls at 800 684 31 to 684-3110 only one.
A society can agree that the most vulnerable.

Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 $50 gift becomes 100.
This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous heart wrenching challenge to make a difference in the protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you today online okay military is destroying the military also putting our lives at risk. This is, I'm not talking about people who serve it talk about those who writes the very tiptop about the secretary to fits this yet.
The guys who go from generals to CIA director. One of those by Kate was very involved Afghanistan but you know is that avirulent antitrust person. He actually retweeted this image.
I want to show it to everybody to understand that our military leadership and former leadership is pretty disgusting so it's out top. It's a picture of Isis it's actually sent a similar picture from the rise of ISIS book that was number one New York Times bestseller that you wrote. It says there Taliban then it says are Taliban and it's just a picture of Americans in trucks and cars flying US flags with from any from truck 2025 election, and sake are Taliban. This is how our military is thinking about our own citizens believe says you should ship those people back to get strip those Americans Afghanistan. This is the best running intelligence and CIA meet its this is that smart their partisan hacks and most of it at this point in their career are being made by foreign government and their data probably hated by making more money from Muslim majority Muslim countries or the Chinese.
One of the two are both could ever make in the United States at and I say that because that's what they all end up doing, and they become these to survive their Washington circles. It's disgusting. It's disgusting but yet we got an actual conflict on her head so that it that is that is scary.
I believe it is scary because not just on the ground getting the 10 to 40,000 Americans out, but are we allowing again the restructuring of terror networks whose goal is actually not to terrorize Afghanistan. They let the bigger Taliban group to that that while that's going on. They plan to tax right here in the United States, radical Islam is not totally dead. We defeated a lot of its main elements into rally elements if you will, in his landmass is a bill and we were destroyed. That would give them a safe haven with new weapons, new materials and new found purpose. If you will, and what they will do immediately start planning on how to attack Americans abroad, so they let me ask you this. We got a room information act request is going out, maybe even today were to raise a lot of questions about this and we want documents, especially why the critical response unit was taken down on Justin.8 weeks ago. Also about the various cables that came in others also supposed to be congressional hearings.
What is the status of that because working to do this we know what you get from the White House and the State Department on this working I have to probably go to court once again and that includes against the Department of Defense, which were going to do. I'm not authorized.
That is soon as they don't respond. We go to court. What is the situation right now with these oversight hearings. Well, the reason were getting out ahead. The reason were not waiting for these hearings to actually be held days because we learned that we actually are. You have to push Congress on this. I mean like it was days ago was the middle of last week when you heard from Gregory Meeks and Robert Menendez that there would be hearings this week on Afghanistan will guess what has been scheduled yet. Jake hearings on Afghanistan a look. I think they are going to happen, but DC moves at a snails pace.
Jake and when you're in the middle of a catastrophe like that you cannot wait for it, so look when I can have an answer from the State Department and others. By the time these hearings take place, but will we will have done is put them on notice that we will not accept a nonanswer or an incomplete answer as a response.
We are to find out why they made this change why they disbanded that critical response team why they ignored the dissent, cable, or how high that dissent cable got a J went when Americans are in harms way like this.
We have to get answers and there has to be accountability at the State Department at the military level and yes at the commander-in-chief level. So look RR the hearings can happen this week. My guess would be yes J but how effective will they be. I think that remains to be seen in one other thing I'd say to you and Jordan talked about how China is saying that US is the root cause of course Al Qaeda and the terrorist organizations were the root cause of this Jake, but if you look around the world. US standing in the world is definitely taking a hit because this because look United States is the security lead on this. So, the United Kingdom and all of the others there in chaos over this as well. Now looking at our studios. We have all the TV cameras of one of the one of the current right now was report Taliban taking Christian women and children. We know that the going house to house with list of questions looking on their phones to see if they could bear fights them with apps and then killing them because of their faith and then we got the report that the Taliban are taking Christian women and children. That's all going on right now besides the fact it's total chaos.
I don't care what religion is in there right now it's totally out of control and psychical yet Julie called from California online two hi Julie, welcome to secular you're on the start thinking about and picking the person that he is not even performing basic duty of protecting the United States of America greatly Afghanistan and also people in trucks coming in from the partnership and can you start thinking about teaching.
I'm really sure that you know Julie would be your presence and right Kemal Harris equally right so you have to question then do you go through. You act like the Democrats and do this just for political purposes with bioidentical votes for Republicans in the minority. The house it doesn't move forward. But second, I mean be careful what you wish for because she disappeared into the set somewhere else in Southeast Asia, not the problem area in Southeast Asia. By the way, Afghanistan or somewhere around there. She disappeared and was asked about Afghanistan question she would to Vietnam, which by the way some interesting symbolism there because the Vietnamese leadership there.
That was it that beat the United States. They are still also horrendous regime. Not quite as much of a threat internationally to the US. Obviously we do work with Vietnam that would normalize relations, but they will be made on those terrorists.
Those people in her mind to remember what it was like when maybe helicopters were taking off in Hanoi.
I mean, this is just what we are really living. It's not want this to be a political discussion but it's just ironic that it's always in these administrations, it's that it's that it's Jimmy Carter nice guy. Horrible policies okay you know the kind, was the exception. Bill Clinton was pretty pretty totally needed to be. The others Obama. I don't what he was doing world.
The new right shifted along 2000 and she remembered a lot of Democrats. The reason why her equipment was having issues getting over the top verse Obama first in that second, even the universe is present from was that the progressive really like her.
They thought she was too too much of a hawk. The term to promilitary and I think we could both attest see your work in the State Department. We disagree on most policies can't afford policies, especially when it came to have you take military action may proceed to get the biggest calls. She was tough that she was not shifted from the Democrat party that's a different Democrat party. I certainly yes it was in the Job I decide what he was going to do was go back to this kind of previous Obama war administration or or even flashback this back. I'd say he's lucky back to Jimmy Carter right now yeah I be the one exception fairly. Clint was of course Benghazi, but even that. Remember, she was try to walk a line that wasn't her reported ministration that had put in this new policy. I do want to say that we play VP brought that if you piece Joe Biden.
This is who you get is present. Running away to Vietnam which the symbolism there horrendous right now.
Cancel that meeting is that it's diverse. It's not even important. What is so important Vietnam right now with all the issues facing the world that you need to be in Vietnam, but this is how she asked the course Afghanistan. This is this is today you read that the embassy got rated was about to be rated by the Taliban. There is no more US Embassy humor, the US Embassy in Kabul is now the airport pick the building that was the embassy has been taken by the Taliban so she's lying again are most at the very most expensive embassy fibers are unreal and that is that is just not tell you right back folks of the ACL.
