It’s a really rough day for the Imperial Palace. Even rabidly liberal CNN talking head Jake Tapper is badmouthing Biden and questioning his competence to lead a country. He cornered Minister of State Antony Blinken and let him have it with both barrels.
CNN attacks the admin
The deep state has full control of CNN so it’s totally amazing that one of their heavy anchors, Jake Tapper, took off the gloves and bitch-slapped Antony Blinken “over the mess Biden has made in Afghanistan.”
Conservatives are reeling in shock that a liberal like Tapper would dare to question the palace.
Blinken thought he was safe talking to a camera crew from CNN but he found out how wrong he was when Tapper started grilling him on Sunday about “the imminent collapse of Afghanistan and its similarity to Saigon.”
The Palace official is furious over that suggestion. Tapper was referring to the end of the Vietnam quagmire when “helicopters had to be sent to retrieve embassy personnel and take them to safety.”
“This isn’t the same,” Blinken screams. They’re using C-17’s, not helicopters to retrieve embassy personnel and take them to safety. When they take off, the planes have clumps of Afghan hitchhikers attached. Not for long though.
“Regular Americans,” as reported by Gateway Pundit, “were not airlifted but rather told to hide. In a city being overrun by terrorists? Good luck with that.” CNN agrees.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken defends the Biden administration's decision to pull US forces out of Afghanistan: "The idea that the status quo could have been maintained by keeping our forces there, I think, is simply wrong." #CNNSOTU https://t.co/5uk1k2vMbY pic.twitter.com/qlX6LU7BTB

Just like Saigon
Blinken denied we were having another Saigon moment so Tapper threw the weight of CNN around and bulldozed him down. “With this troop surge to airlift Americans out of Afghanistan, aren’t we already in the midst of a Saigon moment?” Again, “Blinken denied that was true and then he claimed the US mission in Afghanistan was successful.” Oh really.
“No, we’re not,” Blinken responded. “Remember, this is not Saigon. We went to Afghanistan 20 years ago with one mission. And that mission was to deal with the folks who attacked us on 9/11. And we have succeeded in that mission.”
Before Blinken starts chalking up the success in Afghanistan, it would be wise to note that the Taliban is now being run by a guy who camped out at Guantanamo Bay for 8 years or so. He’s not real happy with America.
CNN was not about to let the weaseling palace official off easy by claiming “the objective that we set, bringing those who attacked us to justice, making sure that they couldn’t attack us again from Afghanistan, we have succeeded in that mission.”
CNN was sure to have lots of background images from Bagram where Taliban forces seized control and threw open the gates at “the Bagram prison where about 5,000 convicts” were being held.
So, Tapper summed up, “Afghanistan now is going to become a hotbed of terrorism.” Well, maybe, Blinken replied. “I can’t tell you what the Taliban is going to do.”
