If you thought looking at his watch was bad while those flag-draped caskets passed by, wait until you see how he handled the anniversary.
The military is famous for their — let’s call it ‘colorful’ — ways of describing things.
They have given us pithy and memorable turns of phrase like: Embrace The Suck; SNAFU; and of course, ClusterF**k.
That last one is especially helpful in describing Joe Biden’s disastrous Afghanistan Exit. If the goal was to have a flashy photo op in time for the 20th anniversary of 9/11, as many suppose, it could hardly have gone more wrong.
It was an exit handled so badly that high-ranking leaders among allied nations lost careers over it, but nary a soul among the US military or Biden’s circle of advisors has paid a price. Unless you count Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, who lost his career for speaking out.
When it came time to commemorate the anniversary of the tragedy that was directly traceable to decisions he himself made about when and how they would leave Afghanistan, instead of making it a solemn and somber reflection on those who lost their lives in the closing days of the war in Afghanistan, Biden chose to make it about himself.
Surely we can’t be the only ones to notice that, for all his supposed concern about our veterans, Joe sure does take a lot of time talking about himself.
We’ve heard angry Gold-star relatives from among these 13 dead fuming about how Joe was more interested in talking about when he lost his son than the fact that their own sons and daughters would not be coming home again.
We remember Joe checking his watch.
We remember nobody getting fired even after that ‘righteous strike’ incinerated out an innocent Afghani man and several children.
The billions of dollars in military tech we left in the hands of the Taliban beggars the imagination.
And what did Joe talk about? He took a victory lap.
In his statement on the anniversary of the attack, Biden highlighted military accomplishments achieved since the deadly exit from Afghanistan.
“In the wake of the horrific attack outside Kabul airport, we have redoubled our relentless global campaign against ISIS and other terrorists who threaten Americans. In February, we took out the global head of ISIS in Syria, and last month, in Kabul, we eliminated the leader of al-Qaeda,” Biden said.
He added, “We now maintain pressure against terrorist threats without keeping thousands of troops in harm’s way on the ground in Afghanistan. And my Administration will continue to hunt down terrorists who seek to harm the United States, wherever they may be.” –FoxNews
Hey Joe. You’ve made bold claims about terrorists before. And even your cheerleaders over at CNN called you on it.
Biden’s claim that al Qaeda is “gone” from Afghanistan is false — as his own administration acknowledged soon afterward. Following Biden’s remarks, Pentagon press secretary John Kirby told reporters, “We know that al Qaeda is a presence, as well as ISIS, in Afghanistan, and we’ve talked about that for quite some time.” –CNN, Aug 20, 2021.
Why should we believe anything you have to say now? Especially since you’re hard at work trying to give the story away to Iran.
These are the people Joe is trying to negotiate with: Remember Al Qaeda? Their HQ Has Relocated To Iran … Your Move, Sleepy Joe!
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
