英格拉汉说 拜登总统的 behavior and decisions have been suspect in this regard ever since his unusual photograph sitting alone at Camp David’s version of the situation room while on a teleconference.
“What was going on that none of Biden’s top Cabinet officials were with him at this pivotal time? Just extended alone time with Jill? Very odd,” 她说, adding that Burns’ sudden diplomatic junket isn’t surprising, but still deserves further scrutiny.
“This raises lots of questions. 第一, why send the CIA director and not a State Department 官方? What were the parameters of the talks? Did the CIA director push to get the August 31 deadline extended? Did he ask if any Americans were being held against their will or demand their release and safe passage? 如果是这样的话, what did we give up for that guarantee?” 她问.
“It’s hard to believe the Taliban just did this out of the goodness of their hearts: This entire scenario has been so fraught with lies and misrepresentations, that we don’t know what to think.”
拜登, Ingraham added, appears to be treating the entire Afghan crisis, with American citizens still stranded behind Taliban lines in Kabul, as a purely political exercise.
“One thing we do know is that after making a cold political calculation, President Biden announced today that he was, 事实上, bowing to the Taliban’s wishes and sticking to the August 31st troop withdrawal date,” she said of the insistence by both the White House and Taliban to keep to the approaching deadline to leave Kabul.
共和党人 should lead the charge in Congress, 因此, to investigate Biden’s and his advisers’ decision-making.
“Why are non-Americans being evacuated before Americans? How many Americans are likely to be left behind? What will happen to them? How many non-Americans are being brought to this country? Is there any reason to believe that the vetting is being done in accordance with US law? Is there any reason to believe that the vetters have any interest other than open borders? Where are the non-Americans going to be settled? Do state and local officials have any say in this matter?”
Another big question, Ingraham asserted is again whether the United States government is paying the Taliban to keep them from attacking the Hamid Karzai International Airport, where throngs of people are trying to get through to the last American-held position in the country.
Ingraham went on to play a clip of Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid reiterating the ‘red line’ declared by the Islamist militant group:
“We want them to evacuate all foreign nationals by August 31st, and we are not in favor of allowing Afghans to leave,” Mujahid announced Tuesday.
Ingraham added that Biden also comes across as “weak… feckless and inept” not only in regard to negotiating with the militants but also in his remarks and handling of the refugee crisis sparked by the overarching crisis.
“[Ť]he true scope of the refugee situation must be revealed. Importing tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands of Afghans to the U.S. is bound to pose major challenges — with huge financial, cultural, and security costs,” 她说.
“Raise your hand if you trust the people behind the border crisis and Afghanistan debacle to properly vet each and every one of these people. The fact is we’ve already seen potential bad actors nearly slip through the system … The Democrats cannot be allowed to take a crisis of their own making, and use that crisis to change or flout US refugee policy. They’ve already tried that on the border – because they turned the border into a magnet and women and babies are showing up there, we now have to let them in even if doing so is contrary to US law,” 她说.
