President Biden addresses the nation after Afghanistan falls to Taliban — 8/16/21

President Joe Biden addresses the nation after Taliban fighters take over Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, and refugees attempt to flee the war-torn country.

Since President Joe Biden’s April decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan before Sept. 11, the Taliban have made stunning battlefield advances with now the entirety of the nation of 38 million people under their control.

The rapid disintegration of Afghan security forces and the country’s government have shocked the world and led many to question how a collapse could happen so quickly after two decades of American nation-building and training efforts.

There's never a good time to lose. There's a difference between leaving and losing. You literally lost the war in Afghanistan with whatever the hell you just did single handedly
Sorry to the families of soldiers who died in Afghanistan.

He keeps arguing for a withdrawal which nobody is against. Save your breath, Joe. It’s the chaotic and bloody exit and backstabbing of our allies that you presided over. You’re strawmaning.

I don’t believe one word that comes out of this guys mouth. He’s corrupt to his core. What a shame. He could have retired in a peaceful existence and be bouncing his grand children on his knee. But now that’s gone for him. He will go down as a total failure. 78 years old. And this is what he’ll be remembered for. Total Failure!

13:12 he corrects himself reading the teleprompter. This is the most human post of the speech. The rest of the video is him looking over the camerasman's right shoulder. Nonstop.

As much as Biden wants to toot his own horn and politics aside, this could have been handled 1000% better. Evacuations should have come before our withdrawal, we still have US citizens trying to leave as he gives his speech. Biden failed on every level.

Female employees in the Kabul city government have been told to stay home, with work only allowed for those who cannot be replaced by men, the interim mayor of Afghanistan's capital said Sunday, detailing the latest restrictions on women by the new Taliban rulers.

The decision to prevent most female city workers from returning to their jobs is another sign that the Taliban, who overran Kabul last month, are enforcing their harsh interpretation of Islam despite initial promises by some that they would be tolerant and inclusive. In their previous rule in the 1990s, the Taliban had barred girls and women from schools, jobs and public life.
