Tucker Carlson: Our leaders won't apologize for Afghanistan, Biden doubled down

'Tucker Carlson Tonight' host slams the president's response to the chaotic withdrawal and evacuation in Afghanistan

We’re starting to learn the identities of some of the large but still unknown number of Americans in the low hundreds, they've assured us, who were abandoned by the U.S. military this week and remain trapped in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan.

The Sacramento Bee has just reported that at least two dozen students enrolled in the San Juan Unified School District in the state of California are stranded somewhere in Afghanistan and uncertain where they are or how they're going to get home. The White House hasn't bothered to comment, despite being asked.

What's so interesting, the contrast that informs us, really, is that over the past week, this same administration has overseen the evacuation of tens of thousands of unvetted Afghan nationals, many of whom will now be moved into neighborhoods around the United States and stay permanently. They didn't seem to encounter any problems in doing this, thanks to meticulous and thoughtful planning, Operation Change America Forever came off precisely according to plan. It worked flawlessly. But a couple of dozen American school kids trapped in Afghanistan? The White House isn't really interested in what happens to them. So they pass that portfolio to Tony Blinken, which tells you how completely unimportant they consider it.


"If there's an American citizen left in Afghanistan," Joe Biden told us the other day, "we're going to stay until we get them all out." Right. He didn't mean that. So what's Tony Blinken's plan to get them all out to rescue the American citizens trapped tonight in Afghanistan? Well, as Blinken told us yesterday, the governments of Haiti and the Republic of Congo have sent a strongly worded letter to the Taliban. And beware, they mean it. You wouldn't want to see the Republic of Congo when it’s mad.

That's the kind of week it's been. Whenever you think we have reached peak insanity, they double down. This afternoon, the supposed President of the United States appeared out of nowhere and decided to speak in public. Did you see it? How to describe the experience exactly?

Weird is just the beginning. So first off, for example, Biden announced that the United States is done with Afghanistan forever. We're gone and we're not coming back. Ever. Then Biden angrily announced that we'd, "hunt down something called ISIS-K," which sounds suspiciously like a new line of cosmetics from Kim Kardashian. But apparently isn't.

This ISIS-K., Biden said, maybe hiding in Afghanistan, in which case we will hunt them down there in Afghanistan. So actually, we're not really leaving Afghanistan. We could be back very soon. The whole speech was like that, it was disorienting. At one point, Biden bragged about what a remarkably really stunningly and historically successful military and intelligence operation we have just witnessed, all of us together. Apparently, Biden is under the impression that the entire United States has lost electrical power and no one has a working Internet connection. So this is what he said.

JOE BIDEN: We completed one of the biggest airlifts in history with more than one hundred and twenty thousand people evacuated to safety. That number is more than double, but most experts said it was possible. No nation, no nation has ever done anything like it in all of history. Only the United States had the capacity and the will and ability to do it. And we did it today. The extraordinary success of this mission was due to the incredible skill, bravery and selfless courage of the United States military and our diplomats and intelligence professionals.

So, no nation in history has ever........
