Can anyone tell us who the hell gave Joe Biden a dose of the extra-strength drugs before his speech yesterday? What did Sleepy Joe think he was going to convey? Strength? Force? Was this his attempt to show the American people that he can stay awake for an entire public address?
So many questions, so little answers.
In his first address to the American people after completely pulling out of Afghanistan, “commander in chief” Joe Biden admitted he was leaving ten percent of Americans, who the United States intended to evacuate, in the country now controlled by a jihadist organization.
US President Joe Biden says 90% of Americans in Afghanistan who wanted to leave were able to, adding "between 100 – 200 Americans" remain in Afghanistan and that "there is no deadline" for those who want to leave.

By saying this, Biden is openly admitting to the country — and the world — there are still ten percent of Americans who the U.S. wanted to evacuate out of the country left there by Biden.

Biden, in his remarks, echoed the words of U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken from Monday, not being able to give the exact numbers of Americans left, claiming that they made their best effort to take as many out as they can, but there are still Americans left.
Biden claims that between 100-200 American citizens have been stranded in the country. This number is an extremely low estimate given to appease the press and save face to the American people. The real number of stranded Americans remains unknown.
Biden added that there is no deadline for Americans trapped in Afghanistan who still are trying to come to the U.S.
“Secretary of State Blinken is leading the continued diplomatic efforts to ensure safe passage for any American, Afghan partner, or foreign national who wants to leave Afghanistan,” he said.
Meanwhile, Secretary of State Blinken has been an utter failure in his attempts to secure the safety of American citizens in the region. His diplomatic efforts have resulted in absolutely nothing in regards to improving relations between the U.S. and the Taliban. In fact, Blinken has worked suspiciously close with the terrorist organization, allowing secret meetings to take place between their leaders and member of our intelligence department.
