Kamala Harris is going to be haunted by this video tape for the rest of her life
Kamala Harris’ political ambition to become President was already on life support.
Now Harris’ goal of sitting behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office may be extinguished for good.
That’s because Kamala Harris is going to be haunted by this video tape for the rest of her life.
Back in April, Kamala Harris boasted on CNN that she was the last person in the room when Joe Biden made the decision to junk Donald Trump’s plan to withdraw American troops by May 1 to instead set up a politically motivated photo-op of a September 11 withdrawal date.
Harris told host Dana Bash, “This is a President who has an extraordinary amount of courage. He is someone who I have seen over and over again make decisions based on what he truly believes — based on his years of doing this work and studying these issues, what he truly believes is the right thing to do.”
Biden and Harris thought ending the war in Afghanistan would serve as a major selling point in the 2022 and 2024 elections as the final troops came home on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.
Back in April, Biden guaranteed a smooth withdrawal.
“We’ll not conduct a hasty rush to the exit. We’ll do it. We’ll do it responsibly, deliberately and safely. And we will do it in full coordination with our allies and partners who now have more forces in Afghanistan than we do. The Taliban should know that if they attack us as we draw down, we will defend ourselves and our partners with all the tools at our disposal,” Biden stated.
But the images out of Afghanistan showing the Taliban lounging around the Presidential palace while Afghans plunged to their deaths as they fell from planes in the sky as they tried to escape the country proved Biden a liar.
And now if Kamala Harris runs as the Democratic nominee in 2024 she will have to defend this failure.
