The former head of the CIA under Barack Obama, Michael Morell, blasted President Biden’s disastorous withdrawal from Afghanistan during an appearance Sunday on CBS News.

Morell claimed that Biden’s withdrawal ‘inspired jihadists’ across the world.

As The Daily Wire reports:

Morell responded to the news that Ayman al-Zawahiri, the head of al-Qaeda, had issued a video on the twentieth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks when asked by host Margaret Brennan if al-Zawahiri was living in Afghanistan, as a U.N. report recently said.

“We think so, which means that the Taliban is harboring Zawahiri today,” Morell said. “The Taliban is harboring al-Qaeda today. And I think that’s a very important point.”

“I think that the Taliban winning the war in Afghanistan and then the way our exit happened has absolutely inspired jihadists all over the world,” Morell later added. “The Taliban is saying we just didn’t defeat the United States. We defeated NATO. We defeated the world’s greatest military power ever. So there’s a celebration going on. We defeated the Soviet Union. Then it fell. Now we’ve defeated NATO. Right? Maybe they can fall, too.”

“I think not only will jihadists be inspired, but a lot of them are going to come to Afghanistan to be part of the celebration, to be part of jihadist central,” he added. “So after 9/11, they all scattered from Afghanistan. I think we’re going to see a flow back in, and that’s one of the things that makes Afghanistan more dangerous than other spots on the planet.”

So, we have a new version of the Emperor’s Clothes, everybody sees that Biden is an incompetent fool, but no one is doing anything about it to remove him!

I would love to see him gone but his token ho would be as bad. Our best hope is to win the house and senate and get the White House back in 2024

This Manchurian Candidate is the ultimate punishment for the voter fraud that was committed last November that many deny ever happened-so are your eyes wide open now? This Obama loyalist has just armed The Taliban with our own weapons, and he’s still in office, now sounding off like some senile tyrant, and all this was made possible by the criminal actions of last November’s voter fraud, so enjoy the consequences because this is what happens when you break the rules and lie! our twentieth anniversary of 9/11/01 ended on one, giant mistake-Biden’s blunder, and the Taliban’s gain!

Yeah, I heard Blinken being an apologist for the hasty retreat that left many U.S.Citizens and our Afghani friends in the lurch in that God forsaken land. He sounded like Neville Chamberlain jawboning about “Peace in our time”. He belongs with Winken and Nod because he is asleep at the wheel!
