In just a few months of being in office, the Biden administration is not only an embarrassment at the national level, but they are now turning the United States into a laughingstock on the international level.
Being the weak leader he is, President Joe Biden has instructed staff at the embassy in Kabul to *destroy* American flags to lessen the embarrassment on the Biden administration for the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan. The instruction was reportedly made so that Biden wouldn’t be as embarrassed through propaganda pushed by the Taliban.
“Facilities will provide destruction support between 0830 and 1600 daily until further notice,” an internal memo stated, obtained by The Washington Post. “Please take advantage and reduce the amount of sensitive material on the property.”
In bold font, the memo added, “Please also include items embassy or agency logos, American flags, or items which could be misused in propaganda efforts.”

Axios reports on the ongoing situation in Afghanistan:
The Biden administration is preparing for the fall of Kabul and a retreat from any U.S. diplomatic presence in Afghanistan — a stunning reversal of expectations. It’s looking increasingly likely to high-ranking aides to President Biden that the U.S. will have no enduring diplomatic presence in Afghanistan beyond Aug. 31 — the date Biden has promised the full troop withdrawal will be complete. … It’s a major reversal from even a few weeks ago.
Despite the efforts to secure intelligence and safeguard U.S. personnel and their Afghan supporters, Biden must brace for the symbolic defeat of seeing the Taliban overrun the space that housed the embassy.
“The army is not fighting — it is only Atta Noor and Dostum’s militias defending the city,” said former Afghan politician. “The situation is critical, and it’s getting worse.”
Former CIA director and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, unleashed on Biden this week, blasting him for his “poor leadership.”
“I don’t know exactly what they are doing, but we had conditions attached to how we were thinking about this withdrawal — I was part of those negotiations,” Pompeo said. “I was also in the room when President Trump made very clear to Mullah Baradar, the senior Taliban negotiator, that if you threatened an American, if you scared an American, certainly if you hurt an American, that we would bring all American power to bear to make sure that we went to your village, to your house. We were very clear about the things we were prepared to do to protect American lives. And indeed, since we began those negotiations back in February of 2020, there wasn’t a single American killed by the Taliban. We had established a deterrence model.”
Former President Donald Trump also made sure to hammer Biden in a statement of his own.
“Joe Biden gets it wrong every time on foreign policy, and many other issues,” Trump said on Saturday. “Everyone knew he couldn’t handle the pressure. Even Obama’s Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, said as much.”
“He ran out of Afghanistan instead of following the plan our Administration left for him – a plan that protected our people and our property, and ensured the Taliban would never dream of taking our Embassy or providing a base for new attacks against America. The withdrawal would be guided by facts on the ground.”
“After I took out ISIS, I established a credible deterrent,” Trump continued. “That deterrent is now gone. The Taliban no longer has fear or respect for America, or America’s power. What a disgrace it will be when the Taliban raises their flag over America’s Embassy in Kabul.”
“This is complete failure through weakness, incompetence, and total strategic incoherence.”
