DM

On Monday, after the United States’ disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan precipitated the country’s fall to the Taliban, President Joe Biden spoke from the White House to defend his actions. “If anything, the developments in the past week reinforced that ending U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan now was the right decision,” Biden said, according to a transcript of the speech. “American troops cannot and should not be fighting in a war, and dying in a war, that Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves.” He went on to say he was “adamant we focus on the threats we face today in 2021, not yesterday’s threats.” “Today, the terrorist threat has metastasized well beyond Afghanistan. Al-Shabab in Somalia, al-Qaida in [the] Arabian Peninsula, al-Nusra in Syria, ISIS attempting to create a caliphate in Syria and Iraq and establishing affiliates in multiple countries in Africa and Asia,” he continued. Immediately after the speech, retired Army Gen. Jack Keane joined Fox News’ Neil Cavuto and nailed Biden on two major lies. Keane said he wanted to “point out a couple of factual errors in those remarks.”
