Change to the Taliban's redline will keep August 31 withdrawal used in human form then and now. This is how that is how that data will redline saying that if the occupation is extended it will provoke a reaction want to hear from you Sharon, call one 800 683110 is not leading the way Americans are stranded they are not. We are committed to bringing Americans who want to come home. Home is just calling you out first thing that we are stranding America stand when I said when we have been very clear that we are not leaving Americans who want to return home.

We are going to bring them home now your home secular present. By using the beauty of would you seven leaders of virtual meeting with these the leaders of the G7 is just told the G7 leaders that the United States is not budging on the August 31 deadline. Now here's the way the White House is spreading it as that that this is there sticking to their plants. What we really know is that this is a cave to the Taliban it's the Taliban was made. This specific date of August 31 which was something the administration used as a kind of guideposts deadline. They seized audit.

It's okay. You gotta be up by then, or else it could be consequences no wiggle room on that and even though that the rest of the world was coming to the President of United States today, including our allies, the UK as well be in the G7. I would include dates of NATO allies as well to stay to announce that they would be stake keeping a military presence in Afghanistan for longer period of time so that we know the present is not going to announce that is going to state the of the opposite which is a cave to the Taliban threats because if you work worried about the Taliban threats are new that you can handle whatever threat they would pose, you would just say list you August 31.

It's got a bit goalpost but but again working with were believable.yeah that's it will even were finished we were ready and will deal with what whatever from the Taliban we need to deal with for the United States of America instead of this rush to get out before you don't fire the stone should do this yet, which is what this is setting up to be. Which is why I keep saying and also to get on today's broadcast. It feels like we are a action step away from a a Afghanistan part two for the United States. We've increased the troop size that's that that's there right now so that's one thanks. Let's be clear on that. The troop size actually increase number two, the Taliban center redline. That redline was August 31 and the bind administration apparently worked meeting with the G7 partners, which is going on right now, said okay word and abide by that you call it what you will but if we don't have people out by August 31, we need to get our people out West and there it will take us three or four days just to get the six 7000 military truth out in our diplomatic staff. There and what equipment we have an airport there. There is no way we can get all of that out. That'll take 3 to 4 days expert say and then still get another 10, 12, 14,000 civilians out J it is, it is impossible to do that by next Monday, so this is I get I think it's given the presence can address the issue later today after G7 meeting, but I think with what you have to understand here's what this feels like. Again, the United States caving to the Taliban you agree with that if you do if you do if you don't. If you have different topics that we want to get those at one 800 684 31 to 4 to be on the broadcast 100-684-3110 here competent Facebook periscope. YouTube is well. I we come back we get to 10 minute Washington DC get an update on what is occurring there. There is a classified briefing that was ongoing for members of the House of Representatives us are waiting to hear from congressional leaders to that were trying to get out our freedom of information act command through the Department of finance and the state is being worked on Vermont, sleep some more senior people so that you go out. Hopefully by the end of today is support the work. The ACLJAC LJ Or we have matching towns for the entire month of August so I get support workplace is a great time to do things doubly impacted donation ACLJ.the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those faith covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy 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 comes 20 $50 gift becomes 100.

This is a critical time for the ACLJ the work we simply would not occur without your generous matching challenge make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you today online okay 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 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 will show you how you are personally publication includes all major ACLJ cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists ramifications. 40 years later history and what Obama care means many ways. Your membership is empowering the right question mission in life today online/send someone to play.

This is a talented spokesperson said that with sky news. This I get to see understood this was today with this is really so August is time differences here were talk about Afghanistan that some these leaders. The Taliban are in other parts the Middle East right now as well take a listen to his remarks on August 31 so we can put in the context now we know that our President has told the fellow G7 leaders take this by third Paul wanted to extend a focus deadline in order to continue with vaccinations out of the country to agree to that point is that this is something you can sense I think that Pres. Biden announced this segment out to touch herself.

I guess they would withdraw all of the military forces. So if they extended. That means that extending a patient. Why then is no need to fall for that universal can I say something in occupation was 2500 troops there.

It is not occupation, so they use the language of the Palestinian authority and try to not transpose onto Afghanistan doesn't work. Number one, number two, there is a G7 meeting supposedly going on like right now and yet the binding ministration announced before that meaning that in fact as it relates to this whole issue of the deadline being the 31st that they were moving it rather it's an stone which is just basically kowtowing to the to the Taliban number three supposedly at this meeting Boris Johnson and others were going to encourage Pres. Biden to be flexible on the withdrawal date so they can get all the international forces out all of the people that assisted with the United States out and at the same time and this is I guess goes back to why would you give your your your enemy here a date less. Why would you do that militarily, what would you telegraph that is amateur hour. Apparently, not only of the telegraph. Yeah I'm a British amateur hour at the White House but more shocking for me as a retired military guy was amateur hour.

Apparently at the Pentagon as well. This is a mess and J there's not going to be any easy fix this mess that the administration got us into this will be ugly likely Americans are going to be left behind in some number and the Taliban will complete a complete takeover of Afghanistan and this is not a crisis in belief in the US military or its credibility is about a crisis of leadership in Washington DC. In particular, the White House, the Pentagon and the Department of State US administration by demonstration stumbled into this plan without any contingency plans if things went wrong.

It was an unrealistic plan to begin with. And like I said, it is a it is a hot mess that we are not going to get out of without paying a price I'm still concerned about while I divorce because there are so many things that the talismanic and ISIS could do on these exits out under just notes going on in Washington.

I know Adam Schiff is has been saying things he has to take us.

This is the head of the Democratic head of the Intel committee, but Ezio given his successor what he thinks it whether or not this can actually be completed at he made the statement for the statement from present by to the other G7 leaders was so released that they are sticking with this. August 31, I'd like to close the ship given the logistical difficulties of moving people to the airport and a limited number of workarounds is hard for me to see that being fully complete by the end of the month and I'm certainly of the view that we maintain a military presence as long as is necessary to get out and tomato patient to our Afghan partners you have.

There's not much agreement Washington DC on anything these days, but it appears that even we can agree with Adam Schiff on these points that this does not appear likely that they can actually accomplish what they want to accomplish.

Based off this August 31 deadline and let's all be honest and clear with Washington even when they say they can stick to deadlines not sticking to deadlines. The Taliban said if you don't you know conflict begins and then you then you get into the real mess. But that I we do know that the congressional leaders like housekeepers were being briefed in mass today. I explained that the people to Washington is not going to deadlines during the one thing they are good at is circling the wagons and when you're Pres. Biden, and you lost Adam Schiff on this unit, you've essentially lost everyone what we had so far is to series of briefings, the one that you played the comment from Adam Schiff of that happened last night to the House intelligence committee and actually Adam Schiff came out and expressed concern over three main points that that the one you play that that the concern about the timeline. He also expressed a concern about the airport security and then also adjourned.

Very interesting then you had a conversation with Rick and Al about this early in the week. He said this was not an intelligence failure.

This is an execution failure. But then today Nancy Pelosi called for a house wide classified briefing that members are just coming out of right now. She'll get some reaction out of that although it was in a classified setting and Jordan for this week is that briefing and then probably later in the week, you'll see a briefing of the gang of eight. Those are taking place of the hearings and that with the one piece of analysis I would give you their Jordan, that is, raising the importance the urgency level of these briefings is not an open setting. It's not in a hearing it's not back-and-forth is behind closed doors and it's classified and it's house wide so look again II think I would leave you with this when you're Joe Biden, and you've lost Adam Schiff, you don't have anybody else in Washington DC.

This is the deeply piling on. It is substantial, we have not seen a moment like this for the Biden administration. Where the press is frustrated, angry, the Dimock fellow Democrats in his own party angry disagreeing with the White House and of course Republicans as well. Now we know how long that will last, but there is this wide agreement, one was a widespread support for drawing down Afghanistan 70% of the American people support that as late as June. So at the idea of drawing down.

I think there was no explanation what that meant. That's very rare in conflicts, you win. Which this is what we had one we had the Taliban had lost they had been hot. They were hiding in the hills. Okay, that decimated niceties of the outlier group they were able to use this as a safe haven. They were able to operate.

They were executing people. The streets were women were being educated going to schools and that serving in proper position including a bit as Brockett being in the government. All these different things so we had one but when we win we don't ever leave credits. We haven't left. If you and I meet with you We lost or something like the something or so. That's when we left because we haven't had anything to protect or to keep. We been overrun yet, but we do have MMA, I was not in favor of having 50,000 to 400,000 machines with the 2500 troops which I thought maybe I should go to. I know that's not my call. That's generous close, but it seems like for 2500 people soldiers there.

It was pretty stable and things were progressing other government collapse was unreal. But here's what I was on Facebook says is an interesting point to tell a banner calling the shots is what you write. They are well armed with American weapons is terrifying, and Elsa right and and at the same time get ready for this. Western officials say that the Taliban is now seeking official recognition is the valid government for Afghanistan and we have left West military armaments of significant proportions in Afghanistan. So when you look at all of this.

Collectively it doesn't paint a very rosy picture to horrible picture. It is a horrible picture that the ramifications we will even know the full extent of them yet, and there were so many missteps whenever Pres. Trump agreed to withdraw. We started the initial negotiations with the Taliban and it was all condition-based and there were conditions on every step, every state and there were a few times when the Taliban push the envelope a little bit and they got attacked the US airpower all that went away in the last eight months so that they went from province to province and begin to take over the entire country which was part of the conditions we set up you can't do that, they started attacking civilians they were going to overthrow the government. The condition was you don't overthrow the government. You don't attack civilians and and you if you do these things. There is a price to be paid all of those conditions when out the window now so that they have pretty much swept the country and then in the middle of this, not reacting to them violating the conditions what we do we leave Bagram airfield, our largest air base in country with the $83 billion worth of equipment.

Much of it was there and allow the tell event to take that airport which is an hour and 1/2 north of Kabul so that we are crippled and getting people out 90 minutes.

It was just one bad decision after another. The last eight months of this guy, three-star admiral, John Kirby served in the Navy. Is this press spokesman for the Department of Defense is not a confidence builder. I will tell you that listen, listen to the statement has what is we work through this daily communication with Taliban commanders and have to continue that's just a fascist, a hard fact that when we really tell the truth the Taliban and then you pointed this out is now the managers were not just talking with Alabama telemedicine the conditions upon our belief that United States are no longer setting the conditions the Taliban are three of them. We know they've asked for J foreign aid no sanctions on then an international recognition. So from one of the biggest terrorist organizations in the world to the one to many foreign aid from the United States and the rest the world rifles for tobacco was a take out your calls, questions, comments, again Facebook periscope you to this is breaking news because the President has told other G7 leaders.

The US is not budging on this. They were actually asking not just for extended withdrawal.

The freight US troop commitment and again I think the debate that we did see is what we've all learned is that with 2500 troops. The United States over their allies was able to keep Afghanistan and control the Taliban out of power we write back only one.

A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, 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 mission will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists ramifications.

40 years later, planned parenthood's role in the Washington Street and what Obama care means to serve in many ways your membership is empowering the right question mission life today online ACLJ/the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those faith uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy 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. 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 protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you today online okay securely I give her to your phone calls.161, two, that's 100 684311002 phones Mary Ellen in Illinois online one.

He mailed welcome to secular on the air apparatus complex is out there waiting over there, and that airport and I see that French and British got a whole bunch of their excessively enough people being trapped in the countryside. They can even get to the applet with activating those two to get people out at least one there.

There's people so that they got a prioritize of the UK you prioritize the UK, the French are predators of first think the problem is that you hit on males that outside a cobbled. I don't know what what US capabilities are. It doesn't seem like we have a lot of capabilities at least were not telling when we do, and so is all this focus on getting to an airport. This is a huge country, one city, one airport with what one runway because our major base. There we close down bottom so the idea.

Again, I think that there are huge problems with the with the gun. They are right in the sense they say glistening Americans for the travel to games to them to tell us that there that's true, but they do have a sense of who is there on the ground, assisting USAID programs NGO programs that will be carrying out US you with US funding so there's that.

And then of course there is the second point this which is that we gave up our embassy already, so he Artie gave up our our embassy. Now we are operating everything out of the airport. Why did we. What reason this what I can figure on the planning. Why do we not keep sequence through the embassy which he could've had enough to solicit a week we could control Bob remembers which is 90 minutes from, so that's number one. Number two, the Central intelligence director William Burns meets yesterday supposedly secretly no secret from Washington with Taliban stop figure Abdul Barrett are income on Monday. Today we get that the August 31 deadline is that's what it is working me out by deadline. One of the folks on YouTube said Taliban did request anything.

The demanding ultimatums and they are not getting the CAA courses not commenting Mary Ellen's question raises an interesting one. And that's this, the French are able to function to some extent to try to get their people out. We have so pulled back on this.

The statements earlier made and I can't remember which.

Defense Secretary it was at said Joe Biden is been on the wrong side of every foreign policy issue. I don't we have that bite Bob Bob Gates for 40 year it's in his book for 40 years.

Joe Biden is been on the wrong side of every part major foreign policy decision and into Mary Ellen's question on their what we need to realize not only are there French and British special operations forces going out there doing it mainly in Kabul, which is a city of over 4 million people. But they know were some of the people are just like we do.

Their sending special ops teams from the airport into Kabul getting your people to bring in the back and the way they're doing it there putting the Taliban will notice this convoy leaving this gate do not mess with us does the United States have the ability to do the same thing.

Yes we do.

For whatever reason were not. I think perhaps I don't know this, that perhaps part of the reason were not doing it is that the State Department is leading this mission and are still operating as if they have a bona fide agreement with the Taliban and and that somehow another. They are good faith negotiating partner and so therefore we try to do what they ask and we don't want to to give basically hack them off and in faces, repercussions, and so because of that we are not doing what the French and British are doing and that is sending small teams out to grab our citizens. We could be doing that for which it Washington sure you were to hear from former members of Congress. As these briefings finish out today that we had every house never had the opportunity to join this briefing so it is since I do think we actually are seeing a unified message, it appears, overseeing somewhat the same messages, at least whether not the unified instructor but there could be power in Congress unifying here. If they were willing to get past the partisanship.

Yeah, I mean right now there is journey. I fully agree with what you said earlier that you don't know how long that's going at last, because at some point using it in a circle. Partisan wagons eliminate just one more example this is the Democratic chairman of the armed services committee Adam Smith.

He just said I am very confident will get as many as possible out, but all that is going to be very difficult and I did ask if the August 31 deadline is still the goal and I was very specific. We need to have a plan to go past the 31st. So again we just be very clear you just had the President at his party say I am not going to go past the 31st and the chairman from his party of the House armed services committee said that's not good enough.

We have to have a plan to go look past that shouldn't be remarkable in a situation like this, but in the DC as partisan as this one is pretty remarkable. This is again II just think that we are not were were living through a different time in the sense of where Washington is, in the sense of Congress, the American people that administration is not budget what their bedding is that you will not pay attention to this that's that's that that's there hoping know it will get enough troops out there that if there's not any conflicts of theirs, not shots fired right now had Americans. While there are Afghans being executed throughout the country as we speak.

If the if the shots are fired Americans and we believe that suddenly you know your to be painted to death kids back to school pandemic issues covert issues regular life issues.

Partisan politics goes back that's what they hope West right now the media is not not giving that past writings, I get that but you're exactly right.

Jordan what is going on here by the Biden ministration is a political calculation to a very serious evacuation/military problem, but the calculations are political.

You're right, they do not want this after say to the American people that we are now exchanging fire the telnet. In reality what we should be doing. We should have a firm stance we will get our people out forget the August 31 deadline.

We will leave when our people are out put the Taliban on notice and indicate to them. We are willing to use force if you strike to stop us. That message is simply not being sent into the British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace signaled late yesterday that evidently the United Kingdom was pretty much convinced that the Biden ministration was going to cave to the August 31 deadline. He said sniffling worth all of us continuing to try. Then he said this.

This is what I want everybody to listen to she's right. He said the threat from the Islamic state and other militant is increasing as the clock ticks down and you're good to see when the United States pulls out on the 31st.

Leaving all those armaments there leaving everything in place. You can see what happens when you have not done proper planning, let me say one thing despite this horrible situation that's going on there in the mess that's in Afghanistan. Our office in Pakistan has just had a major victory for a family, and in Pakistan it's family by family Christian family basically held in bonded labor. In Pakistan we fought back on that took years couple years and we have won their freedom. So then there they are on the screen understand that even in the middle of this American set up along just us and our affiliates around the globe are working to defend freedom and liberty individual for them that family. This was a significant as anything could be getting out of bonded servitude, which is another word for slave trade can learn about that to NACLJI.org, a new piece up there explained the entire story and how the office accident has been assisting this family aced to begin NACLJ.org support the work of a severe matching challenge extends the entire month August of the impact patient be right back a second, the American Center for Law and Justice 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 $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 could make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms to you and your family.

Give a gift today online ACLJ keeping you informed and now is Jordan secular parts of the news right now is G7 leaders are meeting virtually present by this or that meeting and that we know that there should be a lot of pressure from those leaders UK's Boris Johnson specifically but others as well from from NATO allies is too sick to ask. Not that the US just extend this important point to extend the withdrawal because of breaking news right now. Of course it is a bison were sticking to the August 31. I think that's a capitulation to the Taliban threats because they're the ones who said that's a red line and this could be consequences if you go past that so clearly that's what the presence messaging is out, but I think what has to be made clear that these are allies in this that this war have asked that the US not just continue at that that with the withdrawal longer period of time, but to rethink keeping a contingency of US troops and where the American people think largest.

What does it mean to end the war in an and what do you completely withdraw every trip. I don't understand if we knew were, hostile place like Afghanistan with hostile history of lots of bad actors you got a massive Embassy there and you got as a new condo. It's got a big military base, why not why you keep your base in your Embassy and that is in your occupying the entire country does it be you got there. You gotta try to gauge nonstop firefights. We all know that has been the case Afghanistan. It was the Afghans that were fighting the fight we were we were helping and assisting with airpower and also write on the ground intelligence. We out what I declare already that this was over what was said something interesting were during the break and I'll get them repeated and about set the stage for and that is what these 2500 troops did was allow for on ground intelligence, so you knew what was going on and then if you need to do: special forces or that capability you could do it. The problem here is not the drawdown from 200,000 troops to 100,000 troops to 50,000 troops. It's the surrender. That's what this looks like the surrender of this armaments to terrorists bad terrorists is good Terrace by meeting active Terrace I should say cell groups active organizations and then taking it a step further, if you will, and that is allowing our airbases to be run over a friend of mine posted on Facebook essay she worked as a civilian at Bob employee two years and she said this wasn't active military base and we've let it get into the hands of the worst of the worst in the Biden ministration seems to be tone deaf on the consequences of all this that's what's so hard for me to understand what's going on here yet. We spent billions of dollars building buccaneer base. It is a is a strategic base multiple runways.

Lots of hard facilities and so we built it up and then not only do we abandon this base and allow the Taliban to take it. We left billions of dollars worth of weapons and we left. For example, 40 Blackhawk helicopters, 75,000 armored vehicles across country. One sort of R&R another.

We left all of that, there, and just simply withdrew.

They took up land that that was supposed to be.

We would pull back the Taliban had to be conditions and Afghan would remain. Even though corrupt and inept relatively stable.

The Biden ministration change that plan so that your right J by removing even the 2500 troops. We lost our ability for Intel because some of those truths were in constant communication with other Afghans around the country about the movements of the Delavan about Arcata that Isis we lost our eyes and ears on the ground and in addition to that, that some of those truths were able when they got good Intel to call them airstrikes are: special ops mission again to keep the country stable.

Those are the things that the Biden administration abandoned and that's why were in this crisis today are socially Backward to take a five phone calls to 164 31 positive comments of Facebook periscope you to and I continue as well.

The House Republicans just as speaking after their briefing on Capitol Hill to all members of the House of Representatives, so we will see what comes out of that as well to get the they're able to share that classified everything.

Let me encourage you. I go to ACLJ.org you can learn about Victor out of Pakistan to get out if there are victories there are positive happening. Our work continues as well face to face you go through all this and support our work@theaclj.org department matching challenge day that ACLJ.org American Center for Law and justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad.

Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those who, through their faith, uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life reports 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. This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous heart wrenching challenge make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you.

You forgive today online okay 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 is called mission will show you how you are personally and publication includes all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists ramifications. 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the worship ministry and what Obama care means to discover the many ways your membership is empowering the right question mission life today online ACLJ/Taliban into clarification about what they mean by the threat they pose was stated that there be consequences if the US didn't finish his withdrawal by August 31. Now I see the reporting Taliban is there statement is that they will not allow Afghans to leave the country.

So when they talk about all of our at all those Afghans that helped us the Taliban who is running the checkpoints outside the airport in Kabul and has basically control the rest of the country. That's also a threat because if you say connect with those people cross through conflict can erupt very quickly but that also be all of those people. Although those interpreters all the MBM were helping us embassy staff are to be stuck in Taliban control Afghanistan. Can you imagine their fate, we are abandoning our allies, our associates because Joe Biden will move the dates because he doesn't know what's happening and what are these general's thinking and doing that every time they get up. It's like less confidence that is horrible where you believe the people that help us behind here because we instead of using Barbara to move these people, which we controlled.

We had to do this on Internet Kevin McCarthy, I just tweeted out so that he just left that classified briefing on the Afghanistan crisis. Here's what I can tell you the Biden ministration does not have an accurate count of American stranded in the country, or a plan to get them out so there's got to be this all this discussion about what language you want to use to describe the Americans who are there. So even the Americans.

He's he's not extending that today. The Afghans and assist us. But the Americans, the fellow Americans. There is no plan to get them out, but we kind of knew that right meet because the public message to those Americans was somehow get to an airport trust the Taliban to let you through.

By the way, today don't have the airport because Isis is here said that that happened this week. It's the messaging is been very basic at without a lot of specifics on what Americans should actually do and and when they're asked about it as they they have been today about the number of people whose hiding out. How do we do this, take a listen.

Jennifer Griffin asked Kirby about this by 41 number of people who are in hiding who were either recipients.

Some Americans Afghan allies face. Why not go in agreements healed from the Qatari's to common landing Kandahar Mazar-e-Sharif elsewhere because right now you're just left him, intention so that the throughput hasn't improved and increased and I don't think it would be useful expenditure of our time to Monday morning quarterback.

The whole issue with bottom let me let me tell you why this guy really concerns me. You're in the secretary of defense office. You better be Monday morning quarterback and because Tuesday's around the corner so I mean it's just this process.

Denial is outrageous. Not one.

"Again I quoted him earlier, this is Bruce Defense Secretary Ben Wallace. This is what he said terrorist groups such as Isis would like to be seem to take credit or like to be seen to chase the West out of the airport.

We are very very vulnerable should bestir us choose to do something and Wes, as you just said we are on the heels of September 11 which is a celebration day in the terrorist world did nobody think of this.

Did no one in our military say you know the why not say September 11 is a day that we try to do something where we were giving this land. This mass of equipment and armaments and military bases to terrorists that were wearing out reinstall that picture are not just wearing robes and turbans.

Right now they are wearing full military gear is where they got that from the United States. We have the picture there is. That's the Iwo Jima shopper trying to do to rub her nose in this look at that dog radio. You can't see but it's they look like American soldiers but they are Taliban soldiers and then in general. Kirby says I don't want to Monday morning. Our throughput is improved and increased throughput within seven days. Absolutely this is the thing that is so disturbing that the White House seems to be clueless about this, but the same Wes, let me ask you this question. Are they clueless Joe Biden just decide where out of their August 31 come Hecker high water that's the cluelessness that it truly yes he did decide that.

But the military leadership is going along with it and this is going some bad for a retired colonel say, but it's true that I worked in the pit and come for several years. When you get to the four-star senior leader level at the Pentagon you somehow are the Army officer, Marine Corps officer, whatever you used to be because those appointments are strictly political they are appointed by the President and if you're not careful.

It is easy to become a political lackey and to to go back on all of your training.

Your commitment to the troops your expertise. This is why last week and have never done this before. I called on both Gen. Austin and Jenna Millie to be relieved of their duties at the Pentagon, because it is that bad.

You are most important ally NATO is indignant and discredited by the Biden ministration who campaigned as a foreign relations expert. The incoming next probable German Chancellor said that this is a debacle yesterday, the House of Commons and the United Kingdom said this is shameful, cruel and humiliating Jake. These are comments from our friends, not our enemy don't listen German Foreign Minister said this This is really troubling.

Because of this, this deadline situation we are trying to work with the United States in great Britain to have on scenarios on how to work to take people out of Afghanistan after the end of the military evacuation.

You know how difficult it is going to be the situation will not happen. We don't have to be the situation we have a that I was ordering the daily Mail headline because I think this shows about the US standing in the world right now how quickly you can devolve into being feared by the world is aware of the present trump, no question about that, to being almost surpassed last chance to get out a couple. Joe Biden rejects pleas from G7 leaders to extend Afghan evacuation beyond August 1 August 31 after Taliban insist there can be no extensions despite secret meeting with the CIA director and bans Afghans from leaving when this is this is this incident that's that's accurate have an awfully accurate so if you are CIA director flew flew to Kabul yesterday and met with the head of Taliban at the airport and honestly did not negotiate a successful resolution is not scared of us know the director and yet they had to tell a bad there's so many ways we would imagine their families lives their livelihood there.

The fact that we assisted something from getting out of prison as a place like Pakistan so we could negotiate all but you were. I think the Talbots lady gave her so far around the support they have fired shots. We don't think we did it make you office it looks like the only time they've engages their actually stopping other Sino Afghans can lead like wearing some that work with us can no longer go now. I wonder Washington for a moment your thing because I know they came in a class by breathing so we don't know what's going on here, but there has to be a sense of dread on Capitol Hill right now and there's gotta be and were starting to get member reaction come out right now J. I actually think a lot of it's can be in that timeline you just discussed. Because when an ally like United Kingdom says look we got him extend the deadline and the reaction from the United States President is to send the CIA director over to negotiate and then come back and say oh working to choose the tallow band over our closest ally.

That's pretty telling. By the way JR Mike Walters been on this broadcast in the past. Good friend of the program. It is speaking now, but I would tell you to think. I think you can hear a lot about two groups of people. One, the White House is fighting about whether or not to use the word stranded, but they admit that there are Americans in Afghanistan that want to get out they can't get out. Quit fighting about the words and get them out to J. All the women and children that are now at the mercy of the tallow band and at this moment are we just gonna defer to the tallow band same or not to let them out with sounds like it we don't have to.

Here's the thing that that the just just this is crazy. It's mystifying we have the power to take some significant stances and to actually make the tell a man suffer. They have convoys as we speak.

Moving all over the country. We have the ability to go in and to tell the tell a man we're going to decimate you once again unless you don't negotiate with us to help us get our people that we help we have the ability J to take a firm stand on to exert power and to complete this mission.

Not only did they screw up the mission were not willing to exert power to complete an orderly way.

So we come back to get her to take i3 calls 164 3110 T to update your visit. Variable life situations. That's all it forces information. I gets out one from the presence me with G7 leaders, the other from the house members just like this classified briefing for all numbers of Congress and so far were not see a lot of difference between at this point what Democrats are saying Republicans are saying about the substance of of the briefings about where things stand and it just appears everything is worse and worse as as this develops is not just the Talbots say you better get out by August 31, but now the state were actually more Afghans out so that's in that incident after August 31 to say that right now so I think they're begging for conflict there begging for a firefight begging to see if if by the US will engage the problem is we put ourselves the situation where, how do you have you made good on all these promises you made to the world.

Take a listen years have McCarthy we've all just left the briefing is a classified briefing cannot talk about what was said inside, but I'll tell you this. I'm less confident after leaving everything. There's no possible way that we can get every American the still in Afghanistan. Out in the next seven days.

We are just three weeks away from the 20th anniversary of 9/11. At no time should America ever Bender allowed Caliban to tell us when we have to stop bringing Americans out there you go. I think that everyone understands that this is not physical partisan. This is this is more about America's standing in the world were not allowed a regional localized groups like the Taliban to tell the America what to do in the discussion. That's all Joe Biden to say he had to give the Taliban new dates just work that we August 31 were focusing on. But you were to finish were finished. That's all. But he didn't know that was that that that statement alone gives some confidence in your allies that you're not just gonna run and leave, and the atrocity trust is a bit right now it appears that's what we are doing what was astonishing was Pres. Biden who originally set September 11 as the date of the total withdrawal knowing that how did that happen yesterday.

10 years ago on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, they attacked our embassy in Benghazi 20 years from now. What are they going be doing there to be celebrating their going to be raising the Taliban flag over the US Embassy in Afghanistan for 11 business because he thought it was going to be Pres. Biden got us out the 20 year wars over it with be a bragging point for him, not realizing that that that the symbolic date. It is a dark and they like simple is like.

Similarly, like territory, may like symbolism and dates and holidays and symbolism matters.

That's why attacked at the Christmas market attack on Easter that babe like that symbol is in everybody's worried about is a really in-depth fact that this is Carter's mozzarella broadcast before. Take a listen just a veteran of the war in Afghanistan by 45. One thing that Joe Biden either won't admit or doesn't understand is that what happens in Afghanistan doesn't stay in Afghanistan. It spreads like a cancer, it will follow us home and many of us have been very clear about that danger across multiple administrations. This isn't about politics. This is about the fact that America now is less safe as we all understand that we receive radical Islam in the effect of these terrorist attacks in her own country were quick to move on in our country, but this is something, anything, to see all playing out once again, which would be we look weak right now is a country. Everyone can agree on that. That's not a partisan statement or attack on Democrats because Democrats agree as well that this is a given administration that is quickly letting the United States reputation evolve, let's go to John Ohio line 1 hey John, welcome to secular you're on the door. Unlike many of your counterparts, and even the conservative media. I agree with you folks that we should be keeping a military presence as we have for the past 20 years and it's plain to see. It provided government stability in a military deterrent to the Palatine you look at other countries like Germany and Japan will be better President since World War II. NUC NUC that they they want us there. They need a snare because were the strongest military in the world and our President ensures there is safety. And then you look at South Korea how he enabled them to establish free-market capitalism based on democracy in their manufacturing that is there. Their major competitors in the world market and in automobiles and in and in other other items as well and we we did that, I totally agree John, you look at where we've had success militarily United States how we've always kept presence and you look where we have not had success with cutting run now the differences between Afghanistan and Vietnam is that we have one Afghanistan. The Taliban was God we got to pick the government hiding somewhere. We were in stock that you we all know that these kind of governments in these kind places 20 years sounds like a long time. It's very short note, there's a lot of blame been cast on the military in Afghanistan and the former President that his leaving created this but what created his leaving is what we should be lack looking at Eileen on Facebook says somebody needs to start doing Monday morning quarterback.

This is not a game. It's real life, the lives of people are at stake. Which is true. They gotta get their act together, but you gotta ask yourself why did the President of Afghanistan flee the country. Why did the military collapse and why did they do that because Joe Biden and his administration said this is the date we are out. Good luck were done exactly, you know, and I agree with the color week.

You can leave enough of the force there to to maintain stability and give us important Intel especially anti-terrorism entail, but if you are going to leave if that's your decision, then do it correctly your civilians out first picture military equipment out.

First let the troops leave last if you're going to do that either one of those two choices. This administration is completely bungled something. I know that were not classified briefing so I can know the details of that which is perfectly understandable, but the sense that I'm hearing Republicans and Democrats is really serious concern on the way that whole foreign policy leadership team and the generals advising the President have done this and am currently certainly doesn't answer any sense of confidence in this is pretty remarkable to say J but if you look at the comments that you just play from Kevin McCarthy, and then you look back to the comments that that Jordan read from Adam Schiff earlier in the cot earlier in that broadcast dated the same thing. Love Kevin McCarty had her ship on this broadcast. I think that shows that just the extent of this this failure as this is a bout this is this is not about partisan politics is not about blaming just attacking Joe Biden. It is were trying to deal with America's reputation of the world you will. That's what I was no follow-up. So that's what your sense of where this goes, a meeting, make press statements at the breaker what they think of the class I Britney. So where is this whole thing play out. I think there's two things and one is on the topic. We are just talking about this is ongoing.

I need to look we got a week left and then there's that there's more than a week. There's a 2 1/2 weeks before the 9/11 deadline. The Pres. Biden gave in and pulled the rug out from those Americans who there. Think about that that deadline wasn't just the Taliban and is also for the Americans there and then suddenly the security is gone. That's number one number 2J where this is going. Look, there has got to be a pit that at some point on how we can operate the United Kingdom and France have already done this. It's not Monday morning quarterback were in the fourth quarter. Right now there is something the United States can do about this right now.

Pres. Biden is gonna have to change his mind. And JI think it's going to take people in his party staying consistent.

If I go back to what Jordan talked about early how long will this last that's my concern and I do want people to think about this. We close focus outward. They pick September 11. We did is the original target we let that sink in for a moment, the President of the United States of America, Joe Biden serving in government.

His entire devotional prayer pick September 11 is the date we are to pull out of Afghanistan is it that was in the celebration to submit the terrace with SAO we got that this is the terrace. Winning this is that this is right on the playbook of this whole group in Washington DC. It's always good about its celebrations.

Your points, not actual facts on the ground was about saying we got a deal with Iran.

It didn't matter what the deal was that this the same people if Jake Sullivan didn't care it was a bullet points that look like they're written by an intern with no signatures that was there around and this is their withdrawal from Afghanistan same people in charge rushing RCA director to meet with the head of the Taliban against that outfit said what you will see August 31, there will be consequences.

We should be. We should not care about what it has to say think that information utilizing the best that I get.
