President Joe Biden has been played.
According to GOP Senator Tom Tillis, “we played right into the Taliban’s hands.”
“I think they probably anticipated where we would be at this point,” said Tillis in a recent interview. “And what they’re trying to shut down all of our humanitarian operations. And it will put countless lives at risk — not only the SIV holders, American citizens, but their families and their extended families.”
Tillis didn’t stop there. He went on to give a dire prediction that America will not be able to get people out by the 31st of August:
I think we played right into the Taliban’s hands, and I think that we have to set the groundwork for extending it. There is no way you can do the math and think that you’re going to get the majority of the people who deserve to be out of that country, either in a safe third country or the United States, by [August 31]. And by the way, when we think about the 31, we think about August 31 in North Carolina, the United States. I’m guessing Taliban is thinking about eight and a half hours earlier, so minus a day from what we talk about here.
