On a July 23, 2021 phone call with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani regarding Taliban terrorists, President Biden put politics before facts on the ground, stating:
I need not tell you the perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things are not going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban. And there is a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.President Joe Biden
Per his utterly incompetent leadership of US withdrawal from Afghanistan, 13 service members needlessly died and hundreds (or thousands) were abandoned behind enemy lines, facing an uncertain future at the hands of barbaric terrorists.
Dereliction of Duty!
