An impassioned Fox News host Mark Levin warned that if President Joe Biden leaves behind any American in Afghanistan it will send a signal to terrorist groups around the world it is “open season” on U.S. citizens.
“Now we’re supposed to believe with the Taliban, the good guy and ISIS is the bad guy. They’re all cockroaches,” Levin said as he opened his Sunday show.
“They want to kill as many Americans as possible. And now look at the situation. We have a propaganda media in this country prior to a few days ago,” Levin continued.
“But they’ll be back saying what? This is the greatest airlift in American history in the face of the most outrageous surrender in American history, regurgitating the administration’s talking points,” he added.
Levin, one the country’s top talk radio hosts and a bestselling author, went on to reference Thursday’s suicide bombing attack against U.S. forces at a gate near the Kabul international airport.
The bombing killed 13 American troops and 169 Afghanis in the most deadly incident involving U.S. military forces in 18 months.
“We have troops who’ve been attacked and harmed. We have American citizens behind enemy lines with allies, Afghan allies who can’t get out,” railed an agitated Levin.
“What’s going to happen is you’re going to have the biggest hostage situation in the history of the American republic and you’re going to have genocide,” he predicted.
A former Justice Department chief of staff under President Ronald Reagan, Levin went on to say he thinks House Republicans ought to be laser-focused on impeaching Biden over the Kabul attacks as well as the devastating and disorganized evacuation operation in general.
He also said he believes it is inappropriate to blame what happened last week on all four U.S. presidents who were elected and served during the two-decade-long conflict in Afghanistan.
“Four presidents are not responsible for this, and this is how Washington gets away with accountability,” Levin explained.
“There’s one man responsible for this. He did this, not the prior presidents. He did this, Joe Biden,” he added.
“He’s to be held to account for what he did. His generals are to be held to account, his secretary of defense, his secretary of state, his national security adviser. We’ve never seen so many lightweights gathered in one place in the history of this country,” the host continued.
“And the consequences are devastating,” Levin noted further, adding that in order to ensure that all Americans can be safely evacuated from the country, it will likely take a lot more U.S. troops to secure the airport first.
“Of course, the problem with that is you expose many more of our military personnel to attacks in harm’s way. But how else are you going to get American citizens out?” Levin asked, before making his haunting prediction.
“And for the rest of the world, our enemies, whether they’re nation states or terrorists, if we don’t get our citizens out, they’re going to say, ‘okay, it’s open season on Americans,’” said Levin.
“I don’t care if you’re on a train. I don’t care if you’re on a plane. I don’t care if you’re overseas going to school. I don’t care. Your government’s not gonna protect you, and your government’s not gonna get you,” he noted further.
