A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive.

That's the diplomatic term for removing more than 100 former police and intelligence officers in just four provinces of Afghanistan is mostly giving them say passage that was part of the deal with the United States. None of that is happened is also an after action report going on right now and our global allies are also very concerned about this situation and we have to be clear and something here and I want to start with the analysis Logan first setting up that we have dived done a deep dive into this whole Afghanistan situation because we have global affiliates that are involved at the UN at these international courts of the national remote courts we've dealt with Afghanistan at the ICC I means that this is not representing defending American troops so this is not some just commentary were making here so we do a deep analysis, not just legally but also when we do it via the media forces we have.

It really does bring a lot of great information.

The light yeah these interviews can only happen if we had the case of the resources that we have had the ACLJ look to get a myriad of views in this series you're not, so I can get one defined version of what we should have done or should have done. You have 10 experts on this topic who all lived through different experiences.

We would put that you'll see disclaimers as the views expressed not so those of the ACLJ because you have people who are in this like a representative waltz will play clip from spike of member just a minute, I represented Walt the first Green Beret ever serve in Congress which they are trying to track down Barbara.M Hussein more of a know we should the state, we should not appeal that we should know know this was a big mistake in the over-the-counter side you have someone like a Tulsa Gabbert, who is in this exhibit we simple out 10 years ago, but you have an interesting point of view from everybody and get many veterans who served who are in this piece we also have a political official there's there's are people like McNally and West met. There's also Mike Pompeo, Nikki Haley, and a lot of people who look truthfully for being honest.

The next elections next Presidential elections. The next maybe two or three or four maybe a lot of our lifetimes of the age of the people. These are some of the names your to be hearing about a year from now. 10 years from now whenever there are then asked elections for Republicans and Democrats or Independents. These are some of the people you're to be hearing from so this a great time to get them without them on the record talking about things like Afghanistan, which I know is touch the hearts of our people. But here Mike waltz Mike waltz again is a congressman from Florida is also the first Green Beret to ever serve in Congress and is known again for his time in Afghanistan searching and hunting for about a bird dog and he certainly has his thoughts and views in this clip he's going to talk about his relationship with the Afghanistan people from Afghanistan think there's a lot of a disconnect. People just assume that you have that that the Middle East and they have preconceived notions.

Let's hear from Mike waltz again. The summative series revenge. The Taliban brought people Afghanistan and dealt with letters or interpreters and stories of his children. As a dad is that you can connect with it. Maybe someone who is there is there a misconception and we kind of paint Afghanistan as adversaries for the last 20 years.

It seems like there's a lot of good people we see these people running for their lives because they know what's coming. You have given 20 years of freedoms we experience and experience of these people.

They seem like good people with with good hearts.

How absolutely were some of the most some of the most generous, heartwarming margarine, Oreo people that you'll ever come across. Also, survivalist near constantly making life and death decisions so you will receive flip sides because the area mountaineers America in a town then sending a message.

Whether you're an army commander politician saying join us or you and your family will be beheaded in America has made it very clear they left you high and dry. It.

People make those life-and-death decisions and it's understandable and in Army I'm saying they won't get bland in the alignment. They gave them a lot of years absolute. There's a lot of needs to happen there the same time he set them up for failure. He pulled away their air support there intelligence support. Their logistic support and all their maintenance work there on all lines and hide the fighting season and write in it and refused to send any airpower or change clearly our assumptions were wrong to change course and now we are where we are again is from represented waltz that is just a two minute clip of a over just him alone and nearly half hour interview. I can collectively before our 10 piece documentary series "avenge the Taliban in a very few companies and organizations of Prussia countries could get these kind of people to sit down with the general edited get it delivered to you in the time since things have happened since Afghanistan felt a few months ago so it's really interesting look at recent history.

You can even see when things are developing within you, where we are and you'll even know some of the answers before we do because of what some of these interviews were taken place one again going to get these interviews on people's emotions were real and raw and we were sitting at all develop first-hand people that are that help United States are now being killed in Afghanistan because they help United States courts to tell them to not fulfill their obligations, but who in the world thought they would, but were not alone in this and the United States.

I think this is important understand United States and Cuba. Western countries have have expressed their outrage on this weather do what the actual look like, but was a joint statement was issued over the weekend. We have an office in Strasburg France the European Center for Law and Justice with delves into all I said we've appeared at the international criminal Court at The Hague and he was with me in that case, cocounsel depending US military troops because of Afghanistan so I mean this is and they were producing goods documentary that Logan seen produced somewhere in it in a very very deep level, but any that you were just in our European office. We said yesterday that there is this consensus with that consensus will actually mean nobody knows, I'm pleased to say that the 21 countries plus the European Union itself referred to the reports of abuses that had been documented by human rights watch where there were killings and disappearances of former Afghan members of the Afghan security forces and of course the Afghan government denies that is vehemently saying this is a slander against and listen to this as I think this is an important statement. They call themselves they saying this is a slander against the Islamic emirate of Afghanistan.

What we looked up the word and mirror before radio today to see just exactly what it meant and it means a ruler so it kinda presages language is important.

Language is important. You need to think about this and look at the text very carefully what they are saying is we don't have in a mirror right now but were going to have in the mirror, which is the prelude to a caliphate J that's what the exactly what this is but the joint statement says we will continue to measure the Taliban by their actions, which is important.

I want to see what you mean, and do not just what you say. What impressed me was the number of countries that entered into this joint statement.

Usually the United States is not without his without allies in the support that that it is needed, but it was Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Denmark, the EU is, I said, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, North Macedonia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, the Swiss United herein are rarely the Switzerland get involve the UK England.

Our closest ally in the world, the Ukraine threatened by Boudin and the United States to think about you think about that.

This goes back to the scope and nature of an area. When we got two minutes or by what I wanted to join this. We talked about this before we went on air and that is on on from a policy standpoint your director policy set a very dramatic statement is that they that the Bynum is fresh. I'm reading it open. What you said box just about every foreign policy decision they made so far.

I think that's right. So the Biden administration has been very very's consistent in its willingness to demonstrate what its commitment to spineless mess. So while Afghanistan is our present focus.

We should always remember that in 2014 the Obama Biden national security team which included Susan Rice and shakes Sullivan in a show of support for the Ukrainian people sent blankets to the Ukrainian government while leaving Russian aggression in Crimea without an answer. Now the Biden team, including national security advisor Jake Sullivan is prepared to look the American people in the right and proclaimed that the United States is planning to do what it's going how by sending Flickr blankets to the Ukrainian people. The Biden administration has botched virtually every foreign policy initiative that the United States has space from a catastrophic withdrawal of American troops in Afghanistan, leaving behind hundreds of Americans to the mercy of terrorists controlled by Islamists and jihadists from exposing the Afghan a people to starvation and child bride marriages to start with Q since you so you Biden administration is an abject failure and went on with child bride situation. Have we got some good news on one day absolute will we get back.

This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge today make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms are most important to you today online ACLJ secular again. Right now we are talking about all the typing Afghanistan. If you're watching online on YouTube or Facebook you just saw a piece of our interview in this 10 episode series with Mike Pompeo again, these are different kind of interviews in your to see anywhere else. I would talk to you dad about either of the origins of the war on terror. We talk about the patriot act was no is controversial. We talked a lot about that was implemented and what it means now. We talk about that as well with John Ashcroft was Atty. Gen. at the time for people who are at the door. There J1 of the war on terror people up just as recent as my Pompeo and Ricker knelt until seed had come back from him that I might like that from Tulsa got you in this we were having a hard time getting touch that she's been for the show for a long time and we thought you should be a great person, interview veteran also served the country and I was. It was a Presidential candidate, a last time around, and I reached out to her. She said yes to getting it was we didn't really have for two weeks was because she was in the horn of Africa, essentially fighting Al Qaeda. So it was a pretty hard-core copies. We talk about that and it's it's again we cheese days that from that.

We did our interview just a few weeks ago about. Let's take a listen again your bunch of different points of view. You may watch interview with Helsing go. I agree with that portion that portion me here Walt that I agree with that or light revealed satellite for talks a lot about how Oklahoma is bringing thousands of refugees and how they plan on bringing them in as Oklahomans, as they did with previous issues and previous of proms around the world with a broad interest in the space to have thriving communities and we talk about that will tell you that clip first place.

Here, Tulsa Garrett, this is essentially saying hey it within 20 years of relative peace and not that's on the knotted, to laugh at 20 years of freedom for a lot of people, or relative freedom you had women and children and religious minorities have at least some form of decent lives and now the US has to lead knowing that he said maybe this was propped up for failure. To begin with, but with those 20 years and now all of these people who are escaping trying to escape or having to deal with a completely different world and they grew up in, because much like us who grew up in a world where everything was post 9/11 for most of our adulthood that goes for the same and then for all the kids 20 or so kids who never knew any different.

I think that's hard to believe that is hard for the US to to figure out how to become that leader again when we've left such a mess for people who really relying on this is it is a hard reality to accept and unless people are going to advocate for the United States government, American taxpayers and US military to go and you know occupy and run governments essentially prop up governments in every country around the world where people are facing hardship interfacing suffering or persecution, then the reality is that we cannot be in that position and as much as we want to be able to help people. As I've said, ultimately those efforts inevitably end up in creating more suffering and hardship. Only the Afghan people can determine the future of their country. Let me just say something folks you need to get this 10 part documentary Dr. series, you know, we wrote the first book on ISIS I we were at our center at Oxford University back in the mid-2014 1516 that. We had were operating there and we wrote a book called rise of ice was really the 1st gallon ISIS was number one New York Times bestseller and we followed up with a book on on on Russia's Syria, Iran, and it would been on top of this issue. We negatively went to the international criminal Court mag defending US military interests in Afghanistan against the claim of war crimes is very much a companion piece to a lot of those books at start of the next chapter you had rise of ice is negative. Revenge of the tele-band and we didn't do that unintentionally, because it helps you get a better understanding of really what's happening. It's not just about isolated incidents.

It how the last 20 years has led us to this moment. Plus, how we do have to reshape things in the next two, four, six years ago and beyond with our relationship with the Middle East me you have some of my my Pompeo MC part of our team. I said very few people set down with the Taliban. He was there so you don't get that kind of analysis is pretty much anywhere else you what you can hear a very stark difference on the way that maybe our current administration is Intel of the Taliban in the way that the problem with that out of the Delavan little bit more power. The more force he can hear that a lot that great content again from a bunch of different points of view of from the people you hear on the show often to people who are all over the news like Mike Walt's the historically John Ashcroft or James Langford in a none of that was Atty. Gen. during 9/11 when the attack came and Nikki Haley really has worked with us for years and years and are instituting region. Working with Nikki Haley, are we discussing the redoing the BDS summits with a good heart and yet we show that some the of the catechism that about all that any folks, this is what I'm glad Logan brought this up because as you move rattling off these names of people that are associated with the ACLJ okay or have a relationship with the ACLJ us to just be able to call and get in touch okay. That's because of your support of the ACLJ, I just want to say thank you to our donors because without you. This doesn't happen and is looking forward imagine counsel when you when you donate this month you get exclusive access to our revenge of the Taliban and Dr. series but again think about it when Logan started rattling off names John Ashcroft former Atty. Gen. United States Nikki Haley, former Gov., former UN ambassador. She and I worked on the BDS at matters not meant for the reply Nikki Haley, let's play clip from Nikki Haley, are we in this half-hour. That's the question has come up that how that is asked to get some Steve involve the UN.

They've asked for human credentials et al. bad as in a speaking spot that you led the United States to not officially recognize the tele-band out of her by the maid. Why would this be a mistake to think some people do look at it go, what we have to work with them. It's the inevitability of the situation.

Why would you think this to be a mistake for the US and the UN to recognize the tele-band as a as a legitimate government should not count and Caliban is the one that allowed Al Qaeda to make incidents on 9/3000 people died when you look at these terrorist groups. They all stick together and you can't take their word for it, and I think we see that we women are no longer allowed to work in government taking girls out of school if they're doing forced marriages again make dead bodies hanging in the streets to show what will happen if you don't listen to that's not a government.

We should ever want to recognize and it certainly not a government you want to get my when they talk about recognition went back me so we don't want to get to town and it's just not an option that we should ever have on the table and we should never think about working with. We could work with them before we can work with them now. It's never going to be an option. So we gotta figure out another way to get hold spare it's not Americans necessarily back to find an outline contingency that we can go to start getting a hold on the terrace and get bunch of different opinions about different points of view from leading experts in from the war on terror from history one tear. If you are currently serving right now with that. This series is available in the month of December I donate exclusively by donating to the ACLJ in any donation in your receipt.

Give a gift today online ACLJ keeping you informed and now is J secular broadcasts and we got when a jampacked show. We have are dealing with this horrible situation.

Afghanistan were Afghan troops were loyal to the United States are being summarily executed, or what they call disappeared. This is happening right now multiple countries is any said earlier in any quickly here don't go through the list. Tele-buddy, what's happened multiple constant once on what was going on this after action report with her killing these people that help us exactly what we were afraid of exactly what the buying ministration is not prevented young 21 countries including European Union countries from all over the world, from Australia to the Ukraine and so forth, including this was the French and English, and so forth have written statement in human watch shows in support of it saying these atrocities that are going on in Afghanistan are absolutely impermissible in the Afghan government.

The emirate of Afghan the Islamic emirate has come back denying it, which is a lie of course. And when I see his world opinion is turning against the Taliban because there are some countries that have joined in this that I would never have thought would've joined together in a list summarily same including the Swiss, condemning what is going on there. So often we got an after action report being done now west by our military and other experts. What is that mean for everybody. Col. Smith after action review is an AAR and is standard practice in the military that after any operation and especially in operation that has questions about the successes and failures involved. They do an AAR and after action review and so the Pentagon started doing this again last week is a bit unusual because normally AAR's come home immediately after the operation. Immediately you want while people's memories refresh this report, you noticed related.

I don't know this three months in the making. Plus there are 16 members. I think on this after action board. They are not releasing the names of who is on the board, which is unusual. The other thing to us that you have general Millie who is the chairman of the joint chief internal Austin. He's a figurative pants. They both were involved in Afghanistan as commanding general in there on the committee know they're not on the committee to oversee okay but I told you so. Okay so you don't hear you said earlier we got a couple seconds here that this was an abject failure policy absolutely.

But I think the problem here is that this is a consistent aspect if you will, of the Biden administration. In other words they don't foresee problems don't solve problems.

They are quite reactive and and with respect to Afghanistan. Essentially they came. But then they pivoted and they blamed the prior administration. We have a clip from our new series of record all the majorities of the excitement.

Let's hear from acrylic and brand-new series revenge of the Taliban available with any donation to the ACLJ in the month of December thousand thousand people who for the last 20 years. A lot of people whole life we have shown the freedom we have given the freedom of the nation building, whether we like it or not it happens and I were just abandoning people who have lived under at least some kind of freedom.

The last two decades and it doesn't sit well with Americans. You can see in the reaction we don't like these imagery we we imagery we don't take that lightly. Beyond even just our own people ego.

You see, the people who are trying to come over to this country and truly be vetted and we make sure these people are who they say they are. These are people who who have never lived under this kind of oppression and I were to say sorry your hands are up. Now what we have I think are frustrated American watching as political timelines dictated our 20 year withdrawal from Afghanistan. We didn't do it on our timeline. We did it when the talent and said get out.

He did it messy. We left percent of the American and I never thought I would see a day when the President of the United States would be proud to say 90% of the Americans out that's exactly what President St. I will be back in the next segment with Rick Grenell again. That is just a small minute half portion of an over four hour series broken into 20 to 30 minute chunks with again some of the top leaders in our country discussing all the time in the last few months in the last 20 years in the war on terror includes Jay Sekulow Jordan secular Mike Pompeo Rick Grenell Kelsey Gabbert represented Mike Walt's John Ashcroft Sen.

The ACLJ and joining us now course, our good friend and colleague, director of national intelligence, former ambassador to Germany, former spokesperson for the United Nations and our friend Rick Grenell, Rick.

Welcome to the broadcast. Again, we appreciate your expertise on this.

We been talking about Afghanistan would get a comment from you about that I want to go to Russia first. You have a piece coming up in ACLJ may Artie be posted right now called Putin knows this is in light of the conversation yesterday between Pres. Biden and Pres. Putin. What's your take away what he saying in this book. I think it's really important that when we saw those pictures yesterday of present pollutants and across the table from Pres. Biden. We need to understand what Putin knows what is he thinking when he looks across the table and I try to lay it out in the piece you know one thing that's really important to understand this is that put NESN across the table looking at Joe Biden. He knows that Joe Biden spent the last four years telling the American people and the world that Donald Trump was a Russian asset knows that that that's not true, knows that when Pres. Biden says that Hunter Biden's laptop is Russian disinformation. Don't look at the laptop and all of the information filled they are about the Biden family relationship with China knows it's not Russian disinformation, so he's looking at Joe Biden and knowing that he has lied to the American people in order to get into office. I don't say that lightly. Those are the facts. This is going from Rick who, if anybody would know about all this would be Rick Grenell but like I said I want to say this again is one thing Horatio J donors without your support. We don't have Rick Grenell, Mike Pompeo would stop our relation with John Ashcroft the Atty. Gen. during 9/11 that started a most 18 years ago make you go on and on but you get the idea. I mean that this is this is substance here that's real Rick let's take a step further we we mentioned the broadcast yesterday what you would have done in this situation, but I'm afraid if I look at what's happening Afghanistan.

The reports you seen them of our the loyalist of the United States. Does it work with us are being summarily executed work quote disappeared by the Taliban and got world combination on that. I don't know what that ends up translating into you look at that you look at Russia with Ukraine right now China with Taiwan in May. Maybe nothing happens left for the Olympics but this is where the global global heritage is our director of policy was it when you call the global failure on every policy that the Biden administration has botched virtually every foreign policy initiative that it's been associated yet so Rick, when you look at this I mean it it it doesn't have a lot of hope. That's the problem but I think that the reality is that as Americans we always have to have hope and we have to look at the November election to know that we can adjust this policy. One of the great things about being a democracy is that we get to have a say every two years and so you know where in in November things things can change if people get involved. We can have a drastic different direction, but I think that you're exactly right.

What's happening over the last 11 months is pure chaos asset the border chaos at the pump cast at our grocery stores.

Inflation is out of control point to one area where the Democrats and this administration have improved the situation from where Donald Trump left off. I don't think that you can you can point to a single one.

You know we were talking about. We talked about briefly the Afghan crisis on the evacuation there. So now you have. If Russia were to launch a war with Ukraine right invasion, which is more like would be like we a lot of Americans in Ukraine so so what happens on that evacuation Rick will we already know that the Biden policy is to get 90% of the Americans out and that's good enough. Leave 10% behind so I would say to any American who is in Ukraine. Be prepared. You better be part of the 90% because your US government is going to leave 10% behind and be totally comfortable with leaving 10% behind. I hate that where having to talk about this issue and look at choices that are bad and very bad because over the last 11 months we been pushed into this corner. Things should have been much different. We shouldn't of given put in the pipeline.

Everybody knows that but but let's just remember that this was angle of Mark calls major requested she laughed today starts a new government in Germany and now Joe Biden has to deal with the Green party in Germany being in control of the Foreign Ministry and the Defense Ministry that is a clearly weaker government in Germany that Biden has to deal with know and he just got any, colleges left our European Center for Law and Justice last week in Strasbourg and Connie got a sense of what was going on down the time of the European allies are going to be as supportive of the President as he thinks they're going to be in my opinion, he needs to think American and not think globally, but ambassador I wanted to ask you a question and answer the other day to put yourself in Putin's hand if you could and you and you kinda did in your article, Putin knows, but you put yourself in Putin's head and give us a reaction as to what he is thinking of Biden and you answer that question of Obama retread Jake Sullivan said, quote I will look you in the eye and tell you as Pres. Biden looked Putin in the and told him today that things we did not do in 2014. We are prepared to do. Now how do you evaluate that remark. The reality is that in 2021. They didn't do it. They gave them the Biden administration and Democrats in the Senate gave a pipeline to put in that pipeline is not just energy, not just gas it's leverage and the reality is that we have to understand that Putin knows the weakness of the Europeans and and one thing I want to make clear there's a different threat assessment that the Europeans have done what the Americans have Europeans do not feel threatened by Ron as much as we do the Europeans do not feel threatened by Russia as much as we do, they should because the rewriting of the European borders was real under Markel and under Barack Obama, and under Joe Biden as VP. Now it could be happening again. So we need to understand that we have European allies that just don't view the world the same way and so when Joe Biden decides to have consensus with them makes us weaker makes the United States much weaker got a lot of interest on our panel here. People want to talk to Prof. Hutchinson, Harry, what would you have something for well Rick, you made an interesting comment about the Europeans and our European allies and their unwillingness to depend upon the Biden administration, perhaps going forward.

How do you see that playing out in a number of areas including the North Stream pipeline and the petroleum issue you see that playing out in terms of Afghanistan, Ukraine, etc. one thing we have to make clear is is that Germany is not the EU. Germany is a leader and it's the largest economy in Europe and it's important. But if we're going to have a transatlantic alliance that really works that the Biden team. The United States always needs to understand that the EU is multifaceted. You can deal with the Europe in the Eastern Europeans and get a lot more progress take the North Stream to issue that you point out, the Germans were really alone on that issue, European Parliament, the European commission they were telling the Germans don't do this we need energy diversification in Europe, but the Germans ignored the rest of Europe, and Biden keeps playing to the Germans as if there all of Europe, and we we've got to be able to think differently about that ice. I see it's a long answer to say I see this playing out in the fact that Biden keeps wanting the Europeans to like him. He wants consensus. He wants a collapse and applause from the Europeans and they just don't view the world the same way that we do and they should. And so maybe NATO needs to have a meeting and shake people in the thinking about the threat from Russia in a different way. Rick, let me just really a minute nap. Look here.

One last thing, and it's kinda changing focus next time the Olympics is going on and there's a lot of pommel right now on this one word where you see this playing out like I'm I'm it's very late.

We promised the athletes to go. I don't want to pull the rug from out from underneath them. Now I do think we need to have not just a politician and diplomat boycott that means nothing that embarrasses that the Chinese if they were prone to embarrassment, which they're not in the money to get corporations to stop pain and by way I agree. I think the book to pull it out from the athletes. Right now I think would just be tragic for them. Working on this and it's very late in the game.

To do that. Rick Cornell, Senior advisor for global affairs and also of course national security. Thank you for being with us and being part of our team. Thanks, Rick. Let me just say it again and without the support of you folks.

Let me do this. Sen. Sen. Langford's comments. We got our our great documentary that were launching out today it's it's more the documents at 10 part series, but we just were talking about the global aspects of all of this and I want to get everybody's analysis and you got you said you just came back and despite the statements are not so convinced there's a meaning behind the statement that's kind of what Rick was anything behind him and talk about the gonna have this says removal disconnect riser from the swift international payment system. Potential evacuation of citizens from the Ukraine okay big deal I will gonna come from those who move from this was before the banking system. I'm going to evacuate. Tell Americans evacuate and if you're lucky you get to be part of the 90% gets out, not unlike if you're part of the 10% that Biden leaves behind, but I don't see anything really seriously happening and then Jake Sullivan, the national security advisor says well I'm not going to telegraph quote I'm not going to telegraph our punches.

We are going to lay out into the Russians. The details and types of measures we have in mind and coordinating with our European allies.

Let me tell you what Rick Canel said is right. I was in Europe for three weeks. The European view of Russia is not the American view of Russia they don't have that apprehension of view they want to deal with the Russians they want to trade with the Russians. They are not there to take Biden's stand whatever weak standards can ultimately be because that's all he can do is be weak because that's what he is feckless and gutless rights. I want to go to West Smith. Col. Smith. We talked about the drawdown we talked about the military implications if you got China now you got Russia and Ukraine. I made there is a lot happening. There is a lot happening in the world is a far more dangerous and unstable place than it was 11 months ago yeah weakness invites aggression. You look at the long-term ramification again. I people need understand what is that weakness your weakness invites aggression especially when you have bullies like like Vladimir Putin and all that went on in Afghanistan is not over. The atrocities are continuing their we still have Americans trapped there, and so that the ramifications of weak and feckless policy by this administration and Afghanistan is just one example of that. Those ramifications include Vladimir Putin and his intentions concerning Ukraine and what he believes he can get away with it also includes what China will likely do with Taiwan after the first of the year and so what happened in Afghanistan and the other decisions that Pres. Biden is made, it doesn't stop with the decision and the poor execution of something that he decided to do is the ongoing long-term ramifications of this administration, and here I was thinking about this also meant that is not with the stake as is and was matters as he does every day in DC with her office there on a lot of issues that were dealing with.

When you look at this situation that were in right now we are projecting kind of insecurity I would say lack of stability. Certainly, lack of strength that have real ramifications.

Yes, I think you're correct. And so if you look at the laundry list that you just gave us when the Biden administration is not engaged in a commitment to spineless sickness. It then shifts to engaging with incoherence and so on one hand, the Biden administration claims that it is prepared to get tough on Russia to protect Ukrainian national sovereignty and Ukrainian border integrity name the Biden administration turns a blind eye to central American aggression in the form of immigrants who are migrants who were streaming across the US border, so I don't think the Biden administration has any commitment to coherence or intelligence, and I think at the end of the day that incentivizes our enemies. It incentivizes China Ron and Russia get OJ that the telegraphing of the Biden administration to Biden is also something that is picked up by attitude to Putin is picked up by Bhutanese not stupid. He's a very smart man.

He's been in power for decades and is going to probably stay in power until he dies. But Victoria Newland who was an Obama retread in my notorious liar made the statement to senators in a very gloomy briefing session in response to the question of what are you going to do if the Russians you made the Ukraine and she says outright, our options are quote fairly limited.

That's a nice telegraphing to the Russian. This is list comes on the on the heels of their conversation yesterday where supposedly Pres. Biden told don't do this will be consequences and then you got the spokesperson saying our responses will be made very few options.

I mean this is this is what is just nonsensical about this entire foreign policy matter, but look at the analysis you're getting here at the ACLJ our global affiliates around literally around the globe are experts here working with this.

I was I'm saying this to say thank you to you is not to boast, say thank you. John Ashcroft is been with us for decades the Atty. Gen. during 9/11, the former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the director of national intelligence, Rick Cornell, and the list goes on in our and in the doctors at Logan did Tulsa Gabbert's Democratic nominee came a present United States. I mean we can play a clip from the write up on James Langford Sen. from Oklahoma was looking the compassionate side of those that serve with those Afghans that serve with us in the United States interests to destroy the Taliban and what's happening to them now. Very interesting, take a listen and hear what the people who discussed taking refugees in Oklahoma was your decision-making to come to that conclusion because look at some of the states and some other people and in your party have taken an opposite approach to diversity my mind was always different things that were made came to me and said these are folks that I know they fought alongside of them know their families later life and live your freedom loving people.

These are the folks that are fighting against the Taliban research era. The exact type of people that we want to dance that we want to be able to support and so how I came to start the war and what they were saying about those individuals. Now they want them to get out. So that's the first part will be 48 years ago when they were sleeping during that time.

Those are thriving members of our community this morning. Lots of research is lots of business people.

We did this is a state five decades ago based. We will do this again with Afghans that are coming into our country, will probably have about 2000 get many of these strategies are not coming to America and other countries. So those that do come to the United States to make sure that we actually engage in that that we make sure we show them for me. The love of Christ to those individuals but also be able to make sure that we help them survive a pretty amazing transition, not just as a country as a payment is whimpering up on the screen. Those watching on art armfuls media platforms.

Revenge of the Taliban.
