1) Ayaan Hirsi Ali, “Joe Biden is deaf, dumb and blind to the chaos the US has
unleashed; The administration is ignoring history by putting blind faith in the goodwill of the murderous Taliban,” The Telegraph, August 28, 2021 (9:30 p.m.).
2) Jacques Follorou, “Vingt ans après leur intervention en Afghanistan, les Américains s’en vont sur un sentiment d’échec,” Le,Monde,le 28 mai 2021 (Mis à jour le 30 mai 2021 à 16h07). Detailed historical overview.
The catastrophic nature of the decisions the Biden administration has made and is making relating to the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan is jaw-dropping, or as Ayaan Hirsi Ali puts it, “blind, deaf and dumb”.
We are witnessing the enormous damage an incompetent foreign policy team, under a stubborn president guided not by reason but by emotion, can do to the strategic position and foreign policy interests of a nation.
Democrats must either require a reconstitution of Biden’s foreign policy team, or start packing their bags as they look to the 2022 and 2024 elections.
