Obama’s Defense Secretary Unloads On Biden’s Botched Afghanistan Withdrawal

[Public Domain]

Former President Obama’s defense secretary Robert Gates told Anderson Cooper that watching Biden’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan made him physically sick.

The Daily Wire reports:

Gates warned back in 2019 that Biden was had been “wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”

Gates made his new remarks about the disaster in Afghanistan during an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes,” which is set to air on Sunday.

“It was really tough for a few days there, I actually wasn’t feeling very well,” Gates said. “And I realized it was because of what was happening in Kabul. And I was just so low about the way it had ended if you will, and, and I guess the other, the other feeling that I had was that it probably did not need to have turned out that way.”

When co-host Anderson Cooper brought up that Biden said any withdrawal is messy, Gates responded, “Certainly the military considers the withdraw the most dangerous part of an operation, but, but they really had a lot of time to plan, beginning with the deal that President Trump cut with the Taliban, so that was in February of 2020.”

Gates continues that once Biden set a firm deadline that was when evacuation efforts should have begun to help avoid the chaotic withdrawal in the final days of the operation.

What did anybody expect from an empty suit who has no accomplishments to point to in his entire pathetic life.

Winning in 2022 will be pretty hard if the Dems pass the federal rules for election fraud. All the proven techniques that were proved successful in 2020 will be REQUIRED by law to be used, and state legislatures will not be able to change them. That must not happen!

That is correct, they kept him in the basement so he would not make anymore gaffes and he still made them. He knew that he was going to be elected, because the election was rigged.

He even repeated the other evening on National TV his famous quote about He had the world’s greatest voter fraud organization in the world in answer to someone’s question about whether he could win by staying in his basement.

Buckle up folks–IT IS ONLY GOING TO GET WORSE.. Problem is –this weak miscreant in the White House only makes the USA appear to be stupid and WEAK.. They think we are easy to pick off. You see China–his employer already flexing muscle and sending to space HYPERSONIC missiles while Biden dreams up an excuse to get rid of the Space Force Trump started.. Much of Biden’s actions are vindictive and only hurt the American taxpayers..

he didn’t the recounts are showing Trump won. how could he win? when he did come out out of his basement he could draw enough people for a gravesite sitting. when he did come out he preached raising taxes, which is about all he has done since sworn in.

Biden should be hung in the town square until there is no sign of life left!!!! He is a disgusting embarrassment to this country. I see his puppetmaster Obummer is stepping in to cover for him!!!! We don’t need Biden or Obummer representing this country. The two of them together are not qualified or fit to run a chicken coop…let alone this country!!!!!

He is brain-dead. All the people that didn’t fall for his messes and liars were Trump people that were told by our President what to expect form him and that was nothing. He is an idiot and a puppet to somebody up there that knows just about as much as he knows. If WE THE PEOPLE don’t get his stupid ass out there. nothing will be left for us to fight for. Another dumb ass war like we had with Viet Nam and these one he screwed up all the way around. Stand up and take our country and go back to living in a free country and not in Hitler’s land of threat and corruption of communist America. They think Jan.6th was bad. wait until this whole country has had enough from these idiots.

I sounds like Anderson Cooper is okay with leaving Americans and Afghan contractors there to be murdered or held for ransom. Cooper is a big a traitor as Biden.

The Courts have ordered Mush Brain to go back to the Wait in Mexico for the illegal aliens now invading the USA and wait for an immigration judge to determine their asylum plea.. Ninety per cent get sent back to where they came from.. Mush Brain is ignoring the Court order.He is purpsoefully flooding the USA with millions of illegal aliens.

Biden seems to be a man without a conscience and without a soul. Certainly without compassion for those he left behind in Afghanistan. He relishes in his mask mandates and his power over the common citizen. If they don’t say “how high” when he commands “JUMP” he promises more mandates, more punishment, more masking, more inflation and higher gas prices. He address us like children or chattel. Too stupid to understand infrastructure or chain of supply. Too stupid to see through the power grab.
