Fox News host Tucker Carlson took Joe Biden to task for bragging Monday night about killing Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, noting that Biden really has no right to boast about anything to do with Afghanistan.
“It takes a lot of brass to brag about Afghanistan, or even mention the word,” Carlson urged, comparing Biden’s botched withdrawal from the country to the Monica Lewinsky scandal for Bill Clinton.
“His withdrawal from that country almost a year ago was the single most humiliating moment in American foreign policy since the fall of Saigon in April 1975,” Carlson added.
The host further asserted that Biden’s actions “seemed designed to inflict maximum damage to the interests of the United States.”
Referring to the killing of the man who took over from Osama Bin Laden, Carlson asked viewers if they “Feel safer?” adding “Of course, you don’t. Nobody does.”
“The reason nobody feels safer is Biden’s response to the disaster in Afghanistan,” he continued.
Meanwhile, others, including counter terrorism experts, noted that the fact al-Zawahiri and Al Qaeda are even in Afghanistan now, and in Kabul rather than some cave in the south, is directly because of the botched withdrawal.
Biden declared last year that Al Qaeda was “gone” from Afghanistan.
