During a brief exchange with the press after delivering remarks about the SCOTUS’ decision on affirmative action, President Joe Biden was asked about the State Department’s recent report on the disastrous withdrawal in Afghanistan.
From The Daily Wire: The report found that “there was insufficient senior-level consideration of worst-case scenarios and how quickly those might follow” and that the administration “failed to establish a broader task force as the situation in Afghanistan deteriorated in late July and early August 2021.”
“Mr. President, do you admit failure in Afghanistan? Mistakes?” a reporter asked. “There was a — there was a report on Afghanistan withdrawal, saying there was failure, mistakes. Do you admit there were mistakes during the withdrawal and before?”
“No, no,” Biden shot back. “All the evidence is coming back.”
“Do you remember what I said about Afghanistan? I said al Qaeda would not be there,” he said. “I said it wouldn’t be there. I said we’d get help from the Taliban. What’s happening now? What’s going on? Read your press. I was right.”

The official RNC Research Twitter account put together a supercut showing how poorly Biden’s Afghanistan withdrawal went —including the unnecessary deaths of 13 U.S. servicemembers.
