President Joe Biden may have just come off as the most unpresidential that he ever has in his short time in office. In an ABC News interview with George Stephanopoulos that will be aired in full on Wednesday night, a pre-air clip reveals that Biden is every bit out of his depth as millions of Americans feared.
Biden sat down with the former Clinton staff member George Stephanopoulos in a one-on-one interview that is set to air after his press conference on Wednesday. President Biden emerged from his Camp David retreat to discuss Covid regulations, and did not issue a statement on Afghanistan. When reporters attempted to get him to answer questions on the fall of the country after two decades of war, he turned and ran.
The Stephanopoulos interview, therefore, is the first look at Biden being challenged to defend his decision to ignore his generals, particularly the Joint Chiefs of Staff, as well as the Pentagon, with his decision to pull military forces before American diplomats, stafff and Afghan interpreters had the chance to evacuate first.
“When you look at what’s happened over the last week, was it a failure of intelligence, planning, execution, or judgment?” Stephanopoulos asked.
“Look, I don’t think it was a fair — look it was a simple choice, George,” Biden replied. “When they — when the Taliban — let me back up and put it another way. When you had the government of Afghanistan, the leader of that government getting in a plane and taking off and going to another country, when you saw the significant collapse of the Talib — Afghan troops we had trained, up to 300,000 of them — just leaving their equipment and taking off, that was, you know, I’m not — that’s what happened. That’s simply what happened.”
The ABC News clip then jumps to another part in the interview, when Biden gives his assessment of what went wrong.
