Biden held a press conference today after 12 members of the US military in Kabul were killed in ISIS suicide attacks. Biden claimed he would hunt them down and make them pay:

Yeah, I’ll believe it when I see it. Biden might want to sound tough, but his cowardice speaks much louder than his words.
Biden was also asked if it was a mistake to depend on the Taliban. He says it was not:
REPORTER: Do you feel like there was a mistake made [having the Taliban secure the airport perimeter]?
BIDEN: No, I don’t…it is in the interest…of the Taliban, that in fact ISIS-K does not metastasize beyond what it is…it's in their interest that we are able to leave on time. pic.twitter.com/0pcwn7k2yC

When it came to asking questions, he started by saying he was given a list and instructed on who to call on:
Joe Biden says that he "was instructed to call on" specific reporters for questions.

Now to his credit, which I know isn’t saying much, he did start calling on people who weren’t on the list, including Peter Doocy with Fox News. He tried to put Doocy on the spot and here’s how that went:
