Kamala Harris’ presidential prospects took a hit this summer.
Harris bungled foreign trips and failed to manage the border crisis.
And now Kamala Harris is going to regret the day this video footage saw the light of day.
This past April, Kamala Harris took a media tour victory lap after Joe Biden announced a politically motivated withdrawal date of September 11 in Afghanistan.
Donald Trump negotiated a deal to end the war by May 1, but the Biden administration lusted after the symbolism of the final American troops leaving Afghanistan on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
In an interview with CNN, Harris bragged that she was the last person in the room with Joe Biden when Biden set the new optics-driven withdrawal date.
“And you feel comfortable?” Bash asked Harris.
“I do,” Harris shot back. “And I’m going to add to that. 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.”
Harris added that Biden had a near 50-year track record of making foreign policy decisions – all of which turned out to be wrong.
“And I’m going to tell you something about him,” Harris added. “He is acutely aware that it may not be politically popular or advantageous for him personally. It’s really something to see. And I wish that the American public could see sometimes what I see, because, ultimately — and the decision always rests with him, but I have seen him over and over again make decisions based exactly on what he believes is right, regardless of what maybe the political people tell him is in his best selfish interest.”
Biden voted for the endless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Joe Biden also opposed the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
That track record foreshadowed Biden’s blunder to push the American military withdrawal to the heart of the Taliban fighting season andscrap Donald Trump’s plan.
Back in April, Biden confidently predicted an orderly and safe 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 told the nation on April 14.
But the withdrawal was executed so incompetently that the Biden administration left at least 10,000 American citizens and sent them a warning that the government could not guarantee their safety on the trip to the lone airport in Kabul that the Taliban now controls.
If Kamala Harris is the Democrat nominee in 2024, she will be called to account to explain how the administration botched this withdrawal so badly and Republicans will be sure to point to this CNN interview as exhibit A that Kamala Harris’ poor judgement on the conditions on the ground in Afghanistan disqualify her from serving as president.
