Jennifer Griffin was on Special Report tonight and absolutely destroyed Biden’s claim that he’s going to hunt down the ISIS terrorists who killed 11 US Marines and one Navy medic.
Here’s the core of what she said:
The notion now that they are going to hunt down ISIS and that they’re going to find those who carried out this attack…it boggles the mind.
The people they would have relied on to do that kind of work – hunt down the terrorists – they are now cowering, hiding in basements, in safe houses because they can’t get to the airport to safety.
All of our partners, they’ve either left the country or they’re in hiding…and the Taliban has lists of their names, going house to house looking for them.
So I don’t understand how you’re going to have over-the-horizon capabilities and intelligence and be able to find the ISIS networks you couldn’t find for the last 20 years in the next coming days, by Tuesday, which is your self imposed deadline for leaving.
Griffin underscores her comments about the near impossibility of Biden finding these terrorists, saying “the intelligence network just dried up when the US military closed Bagram Air Base and they pulled all the CIA bases out. They don’t have an intelligence network anymore because all of those people who helped the US government are in hiding.”
I hope she’s wrong about this but I don’t see how. At least in terms of Afghanistan, Biden has completely destroyed any intelligence network we had there by letting the Taliban take over the entire country. There is nobody left to do the hard work of figuring out where these ISIS networks are within the country because of Biden’s hasty and bass ackwards pullout. Biden has mucked this up horribly from one side of the equation to the other.
Trump gave him a stable Afghanistan and Biden completely ruined it by abandoning the Afghan forces. And the worst thing about all of this is that Biden will end up leaving Americans stranded to the Taliban because of his utter and breathtaking incompetence.
