We should expect the Biden administration to announce a slew of accomplishments in the coming weeks as voters gear up to vote in November’s primary elections, especially given their plummeting approval ratings and general unpopularity with the American public.
Biden is especially desperate to spin his disastrous withdrawal mission in Afghanistan, which resulted in the deaths of 13 servicemen and countless civilians. Needless to say, the cognitively deficient commander in chief did not expect things to go so horribly.
On Tuesday, Joe Biden celebrated the death of Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, better known as Osama bin Laden’s successor and #2 in command of the Islamic terrorist group. Biden is currently in isolation after once again testing positive for the China Virus. He addressed the nation in a somber, low-energy speech from his White House residence.
“We make it clear again tonight that no matter how long it takes, no matter where you hide, if you are a threat to our people, the United States will find you and take you out,” the sickly president said.

Al Zawahiri is a known terrorist and one of the key orchestrators of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. According to Biden, a CIA drone strike was ordered on his safe house in Kabul, Afghanistan.
“After carefully considering the clear and convincing evidence of his location, I authorized a precision strike that would remove him from the battlefield — once and for all,” Biden said.
Meanwhile, al-Zawahiri’s safe haven in Afghanistan raises many questions and highlights some major contradictions from the Biden administration.
Firstly, why was al-Zawahiri in Afghanistan at all? Didn’t Biden claim Al Qaeda was gone from Afghanistan in August 2021, a claim that he used to justify the removal of U.S. troops from the region?

Also, didn’t Biden on numerous occasions slam Former President Donald Trump for taking out ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi?
“I’m glad President Trump ordered the mission,” Biden said in a 2019 statement. “But as more details of the raid emerge, it’s clear that this victory was not due to Donald Trump’s leadership. It happened despite his ineptitude as commander-in-chief.”
“His erratic behavior made it harder and more dangerous for the special forces carrying it out. And they had to fly through territory that is now hostile to the U.S., taking fire along the way—including territory we controlled just weeks ago,” Biden said.
Biden similarly slammed Trump’s decision to eliminate Iranian terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani in December 2020, claiming the mission inched the U.S. closer to war.
In an interview with NBC News’ Lester Holt, Biden, a Democratic presidential candidate, said of Trump, “I don’t give him the benefit of the doubt of anything.”
Biden said the strike that killed Soleimani “takes us a heck of a lot closer to war. We’re putting 18,000 more troops in the region. Do we have — have they planned ahead of time to make sure they secure all the bases we have and all the areas that Americans are in fact more vulnerable because of proxies of Iraq — of Iran?”
Meanwhile, Biden did not consult the Taliban, who is in control of Afghanistan, before ordering his CIA to drone strike al-Zawahiri. They denounced the strike as a violation of the withdrawal agreement. The Biden administration told reporters that Taliban leaders knew al Zawahiri was in Afghanistan during a briefing before the president spoke.
If the Biden administration was aware that Al Qaeda terrorists, especially al-Zawahiri, was present in Afghanistan, why did they withdraw troops while claiming the terrorist group was no longer there?
Either something incredibly insidious is working behind the scenes, or Biden is just desperate to see an uptick in his approval ratings.
